Jack Fisk (born December 19, 1945) is an American movie industry professional, frequently working as either a production designer or art director on Hollywood movies. Fisk met Sissy Spacek when working on Terrence Malick's 1973 movie Badlands. The couple married on April 12, 1974; their daughter Schuyler Fisk is also an actress. Fisk was art director on Brian De Palma's Carrie (1976), in which Spacek stars. He frequently collaborates with directors Terrence Malick and David Lynch (whom he has known since childhood). His production design and art director credits include all six of Malick's feature films and Lynch's The Straight Story (1999) and Mulholland Drive (2001). He was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Art Direction for Paul Thomas Anderson's There Will Be Blood. Fisk appeared in Lynch's Eraserhead (1977) as the Man in the Planet, and the film's credits give "special thanks" to him and to Sissy Spacek (who reputedly held the slates between takes).
