Entertainer of the Month: Mike White

October's Entertainer of the Month is actor/writer/producer Mike White. Most of you probably recognize him as Jack Black's roommate Ned Schneebly in School of Rock, but did you know he also wrote the film's screenplay, despite not being a fan of rock music. He was also wrote the screenplay for Orange County, another Jack Black comedy that largely went unnoticed a few years back. Black is over the top, as usual, but my favorite scenes, including some bonus scenes from the DVD, feature White as a high school English teacher. See below (3:23).

Next up for White is the comedy Smother starring Diane Keaton and Liv Tyler.
