In the interview with ETonline's Ashley Crossan, Black was in rare form. The 46-year-old actor riffed on everything from his foggy glasses to industrial fans while shooting a 4-D virtual reality experience of a scene from Goosebumps, which will be seen in D-Box theaters.
"Look, I'm nervous," Black joked. "It's not every day you do an Entertainment Tonight interview."
In the film, teenager Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) is upset about moving to a small town, he but soon finds the silver lining when he meets the girl next door, Hannah (Odeya Rush). Zach soon finds that Hannah has a mysterious dad, who is revealed to be R.L. Stine (Black), author of the bestselling Goosebumps series.
As it turns out, the monsters that made Stine's books so famous are real, and R.L. protects his readers by locking them in their books. When Zach unintentionally unleashes the monsters from their manuscripts, they begin to terrorize the town, leaving it up to R.L., Zach, and Hannah to get all of them back in the books where they belong.
