Jack Nicholson
(1937- )

Few actors in the history of Hollywood have had the longevity of Jack Nicholson. With unforgettable performances in Easy Rider and Five Easy Pieces, the actor established himself early on as an icon of offbeat film. But even as he crept into the mainstream spotlight, Nicholson never lost his edge. Through the decades, Nicholson built a filmography filled with oddballs and antiheroes of every kind. The rare type of film legend who doesn't possess the typical movie star looks but whose talent has helped him earn dozens of fine leading roles.

Nicholson is the most Oscar-nominated male actor in history. He won Best Actor for One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest and As Good as it Gets and earned a Best Supporting Actor statuette for Tears of Endearment. He was also nominated for Easy Rider, Five Easy Pieces, The Last Detail, Chinatown, Reds, Prizzi's Honor, Ironweed, A Few Good Men and most recently About Schmidt.
