Jack Nicholson in Little Shop of Horrors

John Joseph "Jack" Nicholson (born April 22, 1937 in Neptune City, New Jersey, USA) is an American actor, film director, producer, and writer. Throughout his career, Nicholson has portrayed unique and challenging roles, many of which include dark portrayals of excitable, neurotic and psychopathic characters. Nicholson's 12 Academy Award nominations make him the most nominated male actor in the Academy's history.

Nicholson has won the Academy Award for Best Actor twice, one for One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and the other for As Good as It Gets. He also won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for Terms of Endearment. Nicholson is tied with Walter Brennan and Daniel Day-Lewis as one of three male actors to win three Academy Awards. He is well known for playing the Joker in 1989's Batman (with Jack Palance) and Jack Torrance in The Shining (with Joe Turkel).

Nicholson is one of only two actors to be nominated for an Academy Award for acting in every decade from the 1960s to the 2000s; the other was Michael Caine. He has won six Golden Globe Awards, and received the Kennedy Center Honor in 2001. In 1994, he became one of the youngest actors to be awarded the American Film Institute's Life Achievement Award. Other notable credits include: Easy Rider (with Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda), Five Easy Pieces, The Last Detail, Chinatown, Reds, Prizzi's Honor, A Few Good Men (with Demi Moore, Tom Cruise and Kevin Bacon), The Pledge, About Schmidt and Anger Management.
