Jack Black To Guest on ICARLY

Jack Black

Jack Black will cement his young fan base by appearing on ICARLY later this season. TV Guide reports he will play Aspartamy, a videogame rival of Carly’s brother Spencer (Jerry Trainor). After they run into each other at Webicon (the show’s fictionalized Comic Con), Aspartamy will issue a challenge to Spencer, so game on.

Black is no stranger to Nickelodeon or to guest-starring on television. He has hosted the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards twice and has appeared on both The Office and Community in recent years. He also starred with iCarly star Miranda Cosgrove in the film School of Rock, so this appearance marks a reunion of sorts.

This is the second big name star iCarly has nabbed so far this season. Jane Lynch will appear in the fifth episode, playing the mother of Carly’s best friend Sam (Jennette McCurdy).
