Bernie-Jack-Black (I don't remember the title of this movie, but I found out what a beautiful voice he has.)
Jack Black clutches a Bible in Bernie... Super funnnnny movie!

48 Hours: How Jack Black relates to convicted killer Bernie Tiede
Richard Linklater has made talky two-person dramas (Before Sunset), documentaries (Fast Food Nation) and rotoscoped sci-fi tales (A Scanner Darkly), but I would argue that his comedies (School of Rock, Dazed and Confused) are his most accessible and enjoyable works. He bolsters this argument with Bernie, a nicely low-key dark comedy starring Jack Black about a real-life Texas murder. http://thevideostation.com/blog/2012/08/23/bernie-reviewed-by-david/#
Shirley MacLaine and Jack Black form an unlikely bond in “Bernie,” Richard Linklater’s dark comedy.
