This is sort of a non story. But I got so many whispered messages and emails that Jack Nicholson would “definitely” be in Warren Beatty’s new Howard Hughes movie, I had to check it out.
Alas, and alack, I’ve confirmed that Jack is not in the movie. He continues to live a wonderful life devoid of having go to work. Well, most people his age have retired. But Jack is ageless.
I’m told that scripts come in. But they are mostly “variations on the Bucket List,” says an insider. Nothing unique has been offered. And Jack doesn’t need to pursue the same path as many in his generation– making lots of forgettable films.
So while we wait, we can download, or stream to whatever Five Easy Pieces, About Schmidt, As Good As It Gets, Chinatown, The Last Detail and so on…
Viva Jack Nicholson!
