Jack Black helps name baby panda

Jack Black attended the panda's naming ceremony

Jack Black joined a zoo in the US for a naming ceremony for a three-month-old giant panda cub named after his Kung Fu Panda character.

Zoo Atlanta named the panda Po, the same as the main character in Jack's new animated movie, Kung Fu Panda II.

The cub is the only giant panda born at a US zoo last year. The naming ceremony was held today (Tuesday), following a Chinese tradition of naming giant pandas when they turn 100 days old.

The actor posed for pictures with the 10-pound cub, which made squawking noises and wriggled and writhed in his keeper's hands.

Jack is promoting the film, which is due out in May and also stars Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman, Jean-Claude van Damme and Jackie Chan.
