You may have noticed a rather buff gentleman wielding an axe on the red carpet during the VMAs last night. What you might not have known was that it was Jack Black, dressed up as the hero of “Brutal Legend,” roadie Eddie Riggs. To complete the look, Jack had a muscle suit, a head banger’s wig and a “Brutal Legend” t-shirt. And, oh yes, the aforementioned axe. Don’t worry, it was plastic.
It does beg the question, which was stranger: Jack Black as Eddie Riggs or Lady Gaga’s bejeweled neck brace?
