* DoingItForTheArt: He not only accepted a minor role in ''Film/BroadcastNews'' for no money, but ''specifically'' requested that he not appear in the trailer, the opening credits, or any advertisements or promotions for the film because he did not want to take attention away from lead actors Creator/WilliamHurt, Creator/AlbertBrooks and Holly Hunter.



* MoneyDearBoy: Averted, for reasons mentioned above.



* StarMakingRole: ''Film/EasyRider'' earned Jack his first Oscar nomination, although ''Film/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest'' assured his place in movie history.
** Though it was really ''Film/FiveEasyPieces'' that first solidified him as a leading man.

* YoungFutureFamousPeople: One of his first jobs in Hollywood was an errand boy at Creator/{{MGM}}'s animation studio under [[Creator/HannaBarbera William Hanna and Joseph Barbera]], then producing ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' and other cartoons. He befriended the animators and still kept in touch with many of them after he became a movie star. In a curious case of [[WhatCouldHaveBeen what could have been]], he was offered a starting animator position after Hanna and Barbera saw he had some sketching talent, but he declined as his ambition lay in acting. He's at top far right in [[http://animationguildblog.blogspot.com/2006/08/1956-mgm-cartoon-department-plus-one.html this group sketch.]]

* HeyItsThatVoice: Without a doubt, has one of the most recognizable voices in the history of cinema. Even if you had never seen his work, you would still probably be able to identify him (but only because of PopCultureOsmosis and the fact that he's one of the most easily-imitated voices ever, next to Creator/ChristopherWalken and Creator/WilliamShatner).

But if you ''insist''... If you want a candidate for the title of "best actor of all time", '''John Joseph "Jack" Nicholson''''s the man - though he's not so much an actor as a force of nature. He's also in the running for most MagnificentBastard.
