HASH(0x9622dab0) out of 5 stars The living "Bad Boy" trope 2 Oct. 2013
By Herbert L Calhoun - Published on
This is a good summary of a not so very interesting life of an American icon. Born on the edge of the depression, and on the wrong side of the Jersey shore tracks, and from birth being shuttled from family-to-family, young Jack took it all in stride. Not even realizing or asking questions about the older sister that he would later learn was his mom.

Jersey boy Jack's success was anything but a linear road to success -- or a foregone conclusion until he was deep into becoming an icon of success. He worked his way up the ladder to stardom the old fashion way, beginning as an office boy and having his head so far down" into the bowels of the movie industry, that he almost missed his entrance cue. One day he was asked by director Joe Pasternak if he wanted to be an actor, to which Jack answered, no. Pasternak then followed up with: "Do you want to be a goddamn office boy all your life? Jack finally got the hint.

But even from this point forward, Jack's apprenticeship dragged on for another 14 years, where after a series of "B league flops," he got another stroke of luck. He was asked if he could substitute for Rip Torn in the Dennis Hopper directed blockbuster genre film "Easy Rider." Jack said yes and he went on to even surprise himself by winning an Academy Award as Best supporting actor in the role of the sleazy lawyer "George Hanson."

And the rest, as the saying goes, was history.

Nicholson's life of partying, screwing around, womanizing and being a general "bad boy," is not nearly as interesting as his film roles. Until this day, his private life, living next door to the late Marlon Brando, still remains pretty much a mess. Three Stars
