If you’ve been following the release of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2, you’ll know that Jack Black has been quite involved in the hyping up of the game. But it looks like he’ll still be playing a bigger role, even after the game is out. Dataminers have found that he will be in the game as the character known as Officer Dick.
Officer Dick was a generic police officer character in the first four Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games. He was also a secret playable character. But he has always been a generic character that’s not made with anyone’s likeness. It looks like with the remaster of the first two games, you can technically play as Jack Black.

Dataminers got their hands on the THPS 1+2 files via the demo, which was made available over the weekend. It consists of only the Warehouse level from the very first game. To get access to it though, you’ll have to have pre-order the remaster.
As a quick reminder, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 comes out on 3 September for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. But for the latter, it will be an Epic Games Store exclusive title.
