Tantalizing Trivia: Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny

Meatloaf had a cameo role in this film as the young Jack Black's father, but he was very hesitant to take the role.

Meatloaf hadn't sung in a film since The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) because he wanted to be taken seriously as an actor. He actually thought his performance in Pick of Destiny would end his acting career.

Now, we can't say if he'll continue being a serious actor (he IS still getting work), but hell... his cameo in the film was just perrrrfect. Nobody coulda done it better, and we're just wishing he would sing MORE in movies!

Meatloaf was also eaten in 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' True story. He wasn't eaten in the form of meatloaf however, which is saddening.
