>> RIGHT.

>> Trevor: SO "GOOSEBUMPS" WASA TV SERIES, ALSO VERY CREEPY

FOR KIDS.

WELL, IT'S FOR KIDS AND THEIRPARENTS AND ANYONE WHO LOVED

"GOOSEBUMPS," BUT YOU'RE RIGHT,IT'S PRETTY SCARY.

BUT, YOU KNOW, IT DEPENDS ON THEKID.

LIKE MY KID, I GOT A 7-YEAR-OLDAND 9-YEAR-OLD AND THEY ARE

OBSESSED WITH MONSTERS.

SO, YOU KNOW, IF YOU HAVE ADOPE, LIKE, BRAVE KID, YOU

SHOULD BRING HIM.

IF YOU HAVE A KID THAT'S LIKE,OH, OH, I'M SCARED!

THEN YOU SHOULDN'T BRING HIM.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)(LAUGHTER)

>> Trevor: PEOPLE'S CHILDREN,MMM...

YOUR KID...

>> LISTEN, I'M A HUGE SCAREDYCAT BUT I ENJOYED IT.

>> Trevor: IT WAS A VERY FUNMOVIE.

WHERE DID YOU DRAW INSPIRATIONSFOR THE CHARACTER?

IT WAS A STRANGE ACCENT.

WAS THAT WELLS?

>> YEAH, IT WAS ORSON WELLS.

THING IS, IT'S AT AUTOMATICALLYFUNNY.

>> Trevor: PEOPLE DON'TBELIEVE ANYTHING YOU SAY.

>> IT IS KINDA RIDICULOUS.

BUT IT'S ALSO COMEDY AND TERROR,AND I PLAY THE AUTHOR, R.L.

STINE, AND AS YOU SAID, HE'S ABRILLIANT MASTER OF MACABRE.

I CAN'T JUST BE STONEY JACKBLACK, I HAVE TO BRING A LITTLE

GRAV-I-TAS.

I READ THE SCRIPT AND I THOUGH,I'M NOT RIGHT FOR THIS ROLE.

WHO WOULD BE RIGHT FOR THISROLE?

I THOUGHT, WHO WOULD BE PERFECTIS ORSON WELLS.

THAT'S THE VOICE I HEAR AND IPRETEND TO BE WHO I THINK WOULD

BE REALLY GOOD IN THE MOVIE.

THAT'S MY STYLE.

>> Trevor: THAT IS ABSOLUTELYGENIUS.

THIS IS ONE THING I'VE NEVER HADTHE CHANCE TO ASK ANYBODY,

BECAUSE ALL THE MONSTERS IN THEFILM, I DON'T WANT TO SPOIL THE

PLOT, IT'S CRAZY AND IT LOOKSREAL, BUT THEY'RE NOT THERE WHEN

THIS IS HAPPENING.

>> RIGHT.

>> Trevor: DO YOU EVER FEELSTUPID WHEN YOU'RE DOING IT?

(LAUGHTER)

>> YOU KNOW, I WOULD IF IWASN'T DOING THIS FOR A LIVING

ALL THE TIME.

BUT IT'S ALWAYS, YOU KNOW,THAT'S THE GIG IS PRETENDING

THAT THINGS ARE REAL THATAREN'T.

BUT, YOU KNOW, IT'S KIND OF LIKECHILD-LIKE AND I'M COMFORTABLE

ACTING LIKE A CHILD.

THAT'S WHAT IT TAKES.

>> Trevor: THAT'S WHAT YOU'RESAYING, JACK BLACK.

>> BUT IT WOULD BE FUNNY TO SEEA CUT OF THE FILM WITHOUT ANY

SPECIAL EFFECTS.

>> Trevor: I FEEL YOU COULDMAKE THAT.

IT WOULD BE A COOL MOVIE.

THE WEREWOLF PART WAS MYFAVORITE.

THIS IS NOT FOR KID-KIDS.

I'VE SEEN WEREWOLVES -- AND THETWILIGHT WEREWOLF IS NOT AS

SCARY AS THIS.

>> WHAT'S SCARIEST ABOUT THISWEAREWOLD IS WHEN HE'S BARKING.

>> Trevor: ONE MINUTE HE'S AWEREWORLF, THEN ANOTHER --

MUSCULAR, BUT THE SCARIEST THINGABOUT HIM IS WHEN HE'S LIKE--
