    FAMOUS ACTORS CHECKLIST – The Films of JACK NICHOLSON

    Useless Trivia
    Birth Name - John Joseph Nicholson
    A.K.A. - Mulholland Man

    The illegitimate son of Donald Furcillo, the son of Italian immigrants, and June Nicholson, whose father, Jack Sr., was Irish and mother, Ethel May, was of Dutch descent. He never knew his father and was raised by his grandmother. He was led to believe that June was his older sister.

    Was asked to play the role of Michael Corleone in The Godfather (1972).

    Turned down the role of Johnny Hooker in The Sting (1973) to play Billy "Bad Ass" Buddusky in The Last Detail (1973)

    Turned down the lead role of Roy Neary in Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), even though he knew the movie would be a hit as he felt that the special effects would overwhelm any actor in the movie.

    Batman creator Bob Kane personally recommended him for the role of the Joker in Batman (1989).

    Avid Los Angeles Lakers fan. He never misses a Lakers home game. Because of this, producers on his films must work the shooting schedule around the Lakers' schedule.

    Rank ‘em, rate ‘em, review ‘em or whatever.

    I've been searching for a copy of THE CRY BABY KILLER since I was around 8 years old but hopefully Disney will release it soon since they bought the Corman package. [​IMG]
