    Been reported in lots of different places, in his mid 70's the fella deserves to retire.

    My favourite jack role would have to be easy rider, used to be on t.v. repeated a lot when i was growing up and i always wanted to be his character. Not shown so much these days. Really with an actor like him, a t.v. channel could dedicate a week or two to his movies. Was top notch in an officer and a gentleman.

    Whats your favourite Nicholson movie then ladies?

    Going to state the obvious, but "One flew over the cuckoos's nest". RP McMurphy, brilliant.

    "As good as it gets" was superb as well. Melvin Udall.

    "A Few Good Men", Colonel Jessop. You can't handle the truth!

    When I did the Walk of Fame thing in Hollywood, his was the hand print I made sure I got the photo with.

    Was absolutely wasted in Batman, what was the script writer thinking? Definite oscar opportunity if he had been given the material.

    The Shinning, The Departed..

    He's a genius, will miss him.

    Happy retirement!

    All great films Nelto.

    I can't remember what it's called but I watched that film recently where he has a heart attack (with Diane Keaton and Keanu Reeves in it). Surprisingly good.

    My favourite actor ever. One of those like Daniel Day Lewis or Pacino who ypu can just watch for them. The plot of the film is a little irrelevant. The Shining, the Departed, About Schmidt, Chinatown. Those are all 8 or 9 out of films for me. Chinatown's my favourite film ever.

    There should be a statute of limitations for spelling mistakes. Getting called out on one from 2013!

    Have you seen the Pledge? That’s a good Nicholson one which flew under the radar some. Old but better than nothing!

    Must have been my subconscious working there. Wasn't intentional.

    Surprised to see "The Last Detail" not mentioned. Perhaps too long ago for many to have seen.

    Couldn't give a brick - I hate golf

    Seriously though - The Terror, or Batman
