Celebrity biographies

Jack Nicholson
Born John Joseph Nicholson in Neptune, New Jersey on April 22, 1937.

Born into a moderately middle class family. His father an alcoholic, and very complicated family followings. It's like a weird family tree.

He started out in Hollywood as a message boy for MGM. That is when he got his big break starring in fellow director Roger Corman's quickie called CRY BABY KILLER. Then he starred in second string "B" movies for almost a decade...that is when he got his really BIG break., starring opposite Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper in a project called EASY RIDER. (to bad he gets killed.) After that, the roles raked in: starring in classics like FIVE EASY PIECES, THE LAST DETAIL, and the ultimate noir film CHINATOWN. Finally after three best actor nominations and a best supporting nod, came his first Best Ator Oscar, starring in one of the best films of all time, ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO' S NEST. After that role he starred in other films earning more Oscar nods, including REDS, IRONWEED, and PRIZZI'S HONOR. But flasback to 1983...Jack got his first supporting Oscar starring opposite Shirley McLaine in a heartwarming story called TERMS OF ENDEARMENT. Ok to 1989 he starred as the Joker in Batman. Then came the small roles for fellow directors. He got into big movie deals starting with A FEW GOOD MEN, where he got a nod for best supporting actor. 1997: A romantic comedy called AS GOOD AS IT GETS, "gets" Jack his third Oscar and second BEST ACTOR Oscar. It seems that Jack is taking some time off right now... Hopefully he will come back soon
