Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz Talks 'School of Rock' TV Role

The 2003 film School of Rock recently inspired a musical and now it’s getting a weekly TV version, which premieres on Nickelodeon on Saturday following the Kids’ Choice Awards. As Billboard reports, each episode will feature a cast cover song and the story arc features Fall Out Boy‘s Pete Wentz, who stars in two episodes. Jack Black, who starred in the film as Dewey Finn, is not on the TV show. The Groundlings’ Tony Cavalero stars as Finn.

In an interview with Billboard, Wentz discussed playing the role of Dewey Finn’s pal. “I’ve never really done stuff with younger actors before and the energy level is off the charts,” he said. “It’s like hanging out with little espresso shots.”

Wentz turns 37 this year, but as he told Rolling Stone in a recent interview, when he’s at school assemblies for his kids, “I’m on the young side of parents there.”

In School of Rock, Wentz plays a rocker who is conflicted about Finn’s new young band. “He thinks it’s silly that Dewey is now playing with these kids in a band, but you can tell he’s a little bit jealous,” Wentz told Billboard. “He offers a view into what Dewey’s life used to be like and there’s a character arc where he changes a little as it goes on.”

Wentz said he was attracted to the part because he likes the film “and it’s always fun to do something my kids can watch, too.”

Fall Out Boy are currently on their “Wintour,” which wraps on March 27th in San Francisco, CA at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium.

Kenny Rogers on Working With George Martin: 'The Highlight of My Career'

In 1985, Kenny Rogers released his 13th studio album The Heart of the Matter, a record overseen by legendary Beatles producer George Martin. Martin, who produced such essential LPs as Revolver and Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, died Tuesday, March 8th, at age 90.

Today, Rogers, a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, remembered collaborating with Martin, even questioning why the studio visionary would pair up with a humble pop-country singer.

“Sir George Martin was a wonderful, incredibly gifted person. I don’t know why he ever bothered to do an album with me, but I was thrilled and touched that he did, and I loved working with him,” said Rogers in a statement. “It may be the highlight of my personal career. He brought a whole different touch to my life and my perspective on music. I’m only one of millions who will miss him greatly.”

The Heart of the Matter, which was Rogers’ last release to top Billboard‘s Country Albums chart, bathed the smooth-voiced singer in elaborate production. More easy-listening pop than country, the record finds Rogers in a “yacht rock” phase, diving headfirst into unapologetic love songs like “Morning Desire” and the narrative “Tomb of the Unknown Love,” both of which hit Number One.

Along with Rogers, Martin also veered toward country and soft-rock with albums for the group America. Among others, he produced the band’s 1975 Hearts LP, which included the Number One single “Sister Golden Hair.”
