Dead Man Walking is the compelling true story based on the experience of Sister Helen Prejean, a Catholic nun caught in a moral crisis; her role as a spiritual advisor to a convicted murderer on death row leads her to become an outspoken advocate against the death penalty, but her confrontation with the grieving families of his victims throws her into a deeper crisis of faith than she could ever have imagined.

    Jack Black was born Thomas Jacob Black in Santa Monica, California, to Judith Love (Cohen) and Thomas William Black, both satellite engineers. He is of British-German (father) and Russian Jewish (mother) ancestry. Black attended the University of California at Los Angeles. While at UCLA, he was a member of Tim Robbins's acting troupe and it was through this collaboration that led to his 1992 film debut in Bob Roberts (1992). Although he was just a background voice in his first film, Jack's appearances in such television shows as The X-Files (1993), his breakthrough performance in High Fidelity (2000), and his rock-comedy band, Tenacious D, have created an ever-growing cult following.
