Eliot also claims Nicholson wrote the screenplay for the cult 1967 film The Trip while 'on acid'

What a complete farking non-story. Everybody does drugs, jesus.
 
2013-09-20 06:58:49 PM  
Where does he get all those wonderful drugs?
 
2013-09-20 07:00:36 PM  
He used to do drugs. He still does, but he used to, too.
 
2013-09-20 07:06:15 PM  
I bet he ate food too.

The real story would be if somebody on the sets of "Easy Rider" wasn't doing drugs....and that includes the craft services people and the best boy grips.
 
2013-09-20 07:09:29 PM  
the last detail is a really good movie. you should all watch it

His greatest performance was acting like he'd never tried weed before in Easy Rider.

When Nicholson and De Niro are gone, it will be an interesting debate as to which had the worse career.

Both have turned in a few stellar performances early in their careers, and it would be a worthy debate as to which was either's greatest performance. However, any reasonably accounting of their entire bodies of work will reveal how frequently each of them agreed to be cast as sad caricatures of themselves, and it would be hard to choose from the many terrible choices, which was each's worst.

Off the cuff, I'd say De Niro took far more "paycheck" roles (including the Fooker library), but Jack signed on for marginally worse material. His turn as The Joker was staggeringly bad, and the human language hasn't yet developed the vocabulary to apologize for Wolf.

He needs to die already because he's setting a bad example for kids that think they can just do drugs and not die in their 20's. If Lindsay Lohan makes it to 30, I fear we're going to lose this drug war.

Oh, come on! No drugs were used during the making of that movie! I mean, if that was the case the movie would make absolutely no sense.

Oh wait...

What about the 70s, 80s, 90s, and when he took the golf club to the person's car in a traffic dispute?

What's the old story, he farked Faye Dunaway for 7 hours, got up and ate a whole apple pie, then went back for dessert?

I liked Wolf. There, I said it.

Favorite Jack anecdote. He's at a club. A young lady walks up and asks 'Wanna dance?"

Jack replies "Wrong verb."

Sorry, gotta disagree there.  For the time and Burton's vision........his Joker was EPIC imo.  To each their own though......

Nicholson NAILED the "the Joker really, really enjoys all of the mayhem he plots and engages in." Ledger nailed the terrifying chaos that the Joker unleashes. But in TDK, there were very few scenes where you could see the Joker really having fun w/ what he was doing. The Joker does a lot of weird, crazy, horrible things, but he always does them b/c he enjoys them. Nicholson's Joker had a hell of a lot of fun, he really enjoyed the murder, mayhem, and insanity he wrought. Of course, the animated Mark Hamil version was the best at both sides, although he couldn't get away w/ outright gore/murder in an afternoon kids' show. But the Joker Fish episode was plenty scary enough.

Yep.

He brought joy to to the role.  His Joker really, really, liked being the Joker.

 I'd like an omelet, plain, and a chicken salad sandwich on wheat toast, no mayonnaise, no butter, no lettuce. And a cup of coffee.

That movie was better than I anticipated. Changed how I perceived the 60's era.
