Rock school Star Kevin Clark sadly died in a tragic cycling accident.
TMZ reported that a man on a bicycle was struck by a car in northwest Chicago early Wednesday morning, May 26, and was identified as the actor. The publication says the 20-year-old woman was not arrested for the accident, but received a summons to appear in court.
The star played Freddy Jones, one of the students of Jack Black’s character Dewey Finn in the 2003 film, who served as the drummer.
Black paid tribute to his late co-star on Instagram, writing, “Devastating news. Kevin is gone. Much too soon. Beautiful soul. So many good memories. Broken Heart. Sending love to his family and everyone Rock school community. ”
In 2018, Clark went to see Black and his band Tenacious D perform in Chicago and shared a photo on his Instagram of the two together. Black wore a t-shirt promoting Clark’s band, Dreadwolf. The entire cast came together in 2013 to mark the 10th anniversary.
Last month, a scene from the film went viral on social media, showing Dewey telling singer Tomika (Maryam Hassan) that there was nothing wrong with loving eating.
“As a kid I didn’t realize the full impact of the scene, but it’s definitely different today,” she wrote. “Happy to have played a part in such an important moment / scene. “
Meanwhile, social media users learned last week that two of the film’s stars have been in a real relationship for a long time.
