Today is Jack Nicholson’s 77th birthday.
While “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” is one of the best roles he has ever played (in my opinion), he has starred in other great roles. “Cuckoo’s Nest” is one of my favorite films of all time. That film is in my top 10 really. I can watch that film over and over — never get tired of it.
Some of my other favorite roles Jack has been in are “Chinatown”, “Easy Rider”, “The Two Jakes”, “The Witches of Eastwick”, “Wolf”, “Hoffa”, “The Pledge”, “The Departed” and of course, the first “Batman” movie where he played the Joker. I liked his role in “Anger Management” too.
Jack obviously slowed down in acting. He doesn’t star in movies much anymore. Why did he slowed down? It’s not that he’s retired. I’m sure he’ll be acting in films ’til he’s dead… he doesn’t play in movies much anymore ’cause he doesn’t have to. The man is loaded so he doesn’t need to work if he doesn’t want to.
He is one of my favorite actors, though. He has been a part of everyone’s lives, including mine so thanks Jack. Everyone have seen his movies in the theater, on DVD and on the TV. One thing he is good at is picking films that we can watch over and over again. I don’t think any other actor in Hollywood have done that??? He sure knows how to pick the good stuff, that’s for sure. I love how he is careful at choosing his films.
Happy birthday, Jack. I’m sure he’s celebrating it good with his family in Hollywood.
