Ever wondered how Jack Nicholson rose to stardom? Jack Nicholson is without a doubt one of the most popular and gifted American actors of the 20th century. The characteristic features of Jack include the dark tinted sun glasses, without which he is rarely seen outdoors, and the somewhat maniacal grin which has a great hand in shaping up his on-screen persona as a psychotic, neurotic and enigmatic character. The real Jack Nicholson is not far from what he portrays on his films: he smokes heavily, drinks heavily, has casual dates with multiple woman and even smokes on cannabis. Nicholson first came into the spotlight with the movie Easy Rider in 1969 and also with the subsequent success in Five Easy Pieces in 1970. His ability to assume a range of unconventional characters is greatly appreciated among his fans. For more interesting facts you must read his biography. Grab your biography book now!

These legends may never have become known if not for their producers' behind-the-scenes insight and ability to recognize talent.

Wilson (Goldeneye, Die Another Day), Dino DeLaurentiis (La Strada, Hannibal), Michael Phillips (Taxi Driver, The Sting), Martin Bregman (Serpico, Scarface), Lauren Shuler Donner (You've Got Mail, X-Men), Robert Chartoff (Rocky, Raging Bull), Mace Neufeld (The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games), Paula Wagner (Vanilla Sky, Mission: Impossible), and many, many more!
