Meeting Jack Black was something I never imagined would actually happen. Black came to Miami earlier this month with his Goosebumps co-stars Dylan Minnette, Odeya Rush and Ryan Lee to promote the film at Four Seasons Miami. Black was wearing a Hawaiian shirt and as cool and laidback in person as I hoped he would be.
While I was a little too old for the Goosebumps series when it came out, I was an avid read of author R.L. Stine’s Fear Street series. I remember trading these books back and forth with my elementary school friend Aimee McPherrin Quigley. These books are such an essential piece of my childhood. It set the foundation for a lifetime of loving suspense and horror plots.
When Black took on the role of Stine, he said he actually met with the author to “get his creative notes and his blessing” before they started filming. by
