While Jack Black is no stranger to video games starring 2009’s cult classic Brutal Legend, it seems the comedian has managed to sneak himself into another game, and it’s none other than the recently released Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2! Yes, this Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 Jack Black combo is a thing!
If you want to play as Black, you’ll need to unlock a series of challenges. Players must complete every Created Skater challenge (around 24 in total). Once completed, Officer Dick (here in the game as Jack Black) will be a selectable skater! In the original Tony Hawk Pro Skater, Officer Dick was an NPC (non-player controlled character) that would ride around and chase players in a golf kart. While Officer Dick was a playable character then, it was a generic-looking cop, and not Black or any other celebrity.
Our review of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 is still in the trenches, though it should be skating its way out this coming week. There’s a day one update for the game if you haven’t picked it up yet, and here’s what’s in it.
