“Devastating news,” Jack Black wrote to begin a somber message in reaction to the death of his School of Rock co-star, Kevin Clark. The 32-year-old was struck by a car while bicycling in Chicago early in the morning on May 26, and died afterwards.
In response to this tragic accident, Jack Black continued to write, “Kevin is gone. Way too soon. Beautiful soul. So many great memories. Heartbroken. Sending love to his family and the whole School of Rock community.”
Kevin was only 12 years old when he landed the role of Freddy “Spazzy McGee” Jones, the young drummer in the 2003 film School of Rock. Jack played Freddy’s teacher, Dewey Finn, who helped his classroom of students become young rock and rollers.
To accompany his written tribute, the Nacho Libre star also shared a photo of their characters from the classic music comedy movie, in addition to a photo taken at the 10-year School of Rock reunion concert that took place in 2013 (you can watch a video from that event below).
