The Guy Who Gets Away With It: Jack Nicholson

“I don’t want to be a product of my environment, I want my environment to be a product of me.”

Jack Nicholson has the eyebrows. He can handle the truth. He is a rogue, a psychopath, a neurotic, a natural. Over a career that has spanned (and interpreted) a series of cultural upheavals in such films as Easy Rider, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Chinatown, The Shining, A Few Good Men, As Good as it Gets, Terms of Endearment, Batman and The Departed, Nicholson has launched more catchphrases than perhaps any other actor. Incidentally, He’s also the most nominated male actor in the history of the Academy Awards.
