The short answer is no, Adam DeVine and Jack Black are not related. The fact that both actors share the same humor and look similar is a mere coincidence.
The two actors share a lot of similitudes, including their look and humor. Let’s learn a little more about what other things they share in common.
Although these two actors share the same quirkiness, they are not related whatsoever. These two share the same style of humor and attitude, which might trick people to think they are family.
Adam’s silliness is something he has in common with Jack; they both enjoy being goofballs in any situation. While both actors can perform serious roles, we often see these two as the comedy relief in their movies.
Yet another quality they share in common is how well they can do voice imitations. They often make gags involving their voice changing or imitating a celebrity.
These two regularly get roles involving only their voice. One of Jack’s most beloved roles is giving voice to Po from Kung Fu Panda.
Although Adam is more of a physical actor, he can give great voice performances. We can hear Adam’s work in cartoon shows such as Uncle Grandpa, Vampirina, and Penn Zero.
We’ve seen Jack in drama movies in the past, but we can all agree that his best roles are the ones found in comedy films. But not only Jack makes us laugh on the big screen, but also with his musical performances.
Jack’s music is a perfect example of how good music can also be funny at the same time. Listening to Jack’s band, “Tenacious D,” is a pretty wild experience; most of their songs feature wacky guitar riffs and hilarious lyrics.
Adam DeVine also shares the same passion for music as Jack. Adam participated in different music videos over the years, including Weezer’s single “California Snow.”
But Adam’s talent doesn’t end in acting; he’s also a good singer. His role in the movie “Pitch Perfect” shows how great he can act and sing at the same time.
Although the age gap between these two actors is noticeable, they do look somewhat alike. Jacks might be a little thicker than Adams, but they share some physical similitudes.
Both actors rely on their hilarious and over-the-top facial expressions for their comedy style. Their movement on-set and the way they act are also strikingly similar.
Adam’s show “Workaholics” is yet another proof of the actor’s comedy and writing skills. Adam is the co-creator of “Workaholics;” he even helped with the writing of some of the best jokes on the show.
In one of the TV episodes of Workaholics, Jack Black appears playing the role of Adam’s DeVine’s dad. They even shared the moment on Instagram to commemorate the occasion.
Jack’s Youtube channel also shows us the actor’s creativity when making jokes up. In his gaming channel, Jack shows his comedic skills with his dorky jokes and silly sketches
But comedy isn’t the only thing they have in common. Adam’s interest in helping others is something he shares with Jack.
In one of his live streams, Jack managed to raise over $30.000 for the National Alliance of Mental Illness. On the other hand, Adam is a supporter of a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for hospitals.
The two actors share a lot in common so it wasn’t a surprise to learn that they are good friends behind the stage.
Friends and Colleagues
Both actors are always praising each other‘s work, proving how authentic their friendship is.
Jack and Adam maintain a good relationship as colleagues. Jack’s role in Workaholics is yet another example of the two working together in a project.
Jack’s role in Workaholics made him closer to Adam. They often interact on social media and have a lot of respect for each other.
The two actors share the same taste in movies and act alike, which explains their friendship. Jack’s love for video games is also something he has in common with Adam.
Adam loves to impersonate Jack, especially regarding his voice and attitude; he knows Jack well enough to perfectly imitate the way he talks and moves. Jack also likes to imitate Adam’s over-the-top attitude when goofing together.
What Will the Future Bring?
After Jack’s role as the father of Adam in Workaholics, everyone wants to watch both actors sharing the same screen again. We can only hope for a future project to finally see the two Hollywood stars participating in hilarious scenes for our enjoyment.
