Jack Driscoll is a playwright and the male protagonist in the 2005 film, King Kong.
Jack is commissioned to write a screenplay for Carl Denham's newest film. He comes aboard the S.S. Venture to give the script to Denham, but it is incomplete, so Denham stalls Driscoll until the boat has already cast off. Shortly after becoming a member of the voyage to Skull Island, He is introduced to Ann Darrow, with whom he builds a romance. After arriving on Skull Island, he is rendered unconscious by an Islander's club. When he awakens on the Venture, he notices an islander's necklace on the deck. He tries to warn the crew of the threat, but his words are indecipherable due to the head trauma. He eventually tells the captain to turn back for Ann, whom he has discovered to be missing, a request which is granted.
Driscoll is part of the party sent to look for Ann. After the loss of most of the party members, and a rescue by those who stayed with the ship, Driscoll alone goes back into the jungle to search for Ann. He finds her in Kong's hand, and he tries to save her, but the sleeping Kong awakens when he feels Ms. Darrow slip from his grasp. Driscoll tries to escape with Darrow by climbing down a vine, but Kong sees and begins to pull them up. They finally escape by simply running to the gated entrance to the jungles of Skull Island, Where the crew of the Venture, and Carl Denham await them.
When he returns to New York, he launches a stage comedy that he had written for Darrow to star in, but upon returning Darrow chose to do small time Vaudeville, leaving Driscoll's play to star another woman. Driscoll is present when Kong escapes the theater where he is being held captive, but Kong recognizes Driscoll as the man who took Darrow from him. Driscoll then gets into a car to lure Kong away from the city, but Kong breaks Driscoll's car, and returns to his rampage. Driscoll is seen again breaking past blockades to get into the Empire State Building to get Darrow to saftey.
