COMEDY genius Jack Black is to star in his own videogame. Br�tal Legend sees Black take on the role of Eddie Riggs, a hard rockin' roadie who ends up being magically transported into the world of Heavy Metal to fight evil glam rocker Lord Dolivicus and his demon henchmen. With cameos by Lemmy from Mot�rhead and Judas Priest's Rob Halford, the game is like a cross between God of War and a Spinal Tap movie. The Secret of Monkey Island scribe Tim Schafer has co-written the script with Black, so expect nothing less than comedy gold when it's released on Xbox 360 and PS3 later this year.
