Jack Black fans rejoice! We are pleased to announce that Jack Black is now a playable character in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2. He’s technically not an official character in the game, but his voice and likeness have been used to represent a fan-favorite secret skater.
However, the catch is that you have to complete a series of challenges so that you can unlock him as a playable character.
In previous versions of the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater franchise, there was an NPC called Officer Dick who drove around School II with his golf kart and would chase around players. Eventually, however, he became an unlockable character and players could play as Officer Dick.
Back then, his appearance was basically just your generic cop, but that’s no longer the case in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2. This time, you’ll find that Officer Dick has Jack Black’s voice and face now. How exciting!
However, it will require a bit of effort to unlock Officer Dick in this game. What you need to do to unlock him is to complete all 24 Created Skater challenge. After doing so, you will be able to choose Officer Dick in the Select Skater menu.
Many fans have been so excited to hear about this fact, with some reactions you will find below:

That being said, Jack Black has also featured his time at Activision in his YouTube channel. Near the end, he plays a bit of the game to show off Officer Dick. Jack Black states that he’s such a huge fan of Tony Hawk as well as the franchise that he refused to get paid when they asked him to be a part of the game.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 is now available to play on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The excitement towards this game’s release has been so widespread that many retailers discounted the game even before its release date.
