* 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.

** Also, his three wins put him in a select group of six that have won 3 or more acting Oscars. The others include Creator/MerylStreep, Daniel Day-Lewis, Walter Brennan, Creator/IngridBergman, and KatharineHepburn (the latter of whom has 4).

Nicholson has been nominated for Academy Awards twelve times. He won the Academy Award for Best Actor twice, for ''Film/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest'' and for ''Film/AsGoodAsItGets''. He won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for ''Film/TermsOfEndearment''. He is tied with Walter Brennan and Creator/DanielDayLewis for most acting wins by a male actor (three), and second to Creator/KatharineHepburn for most acting wins overall (four). He is also one of only two actors nominated for an Academy Award for acting (either lead or supporting) in every decade since the 1960s (the other being MichaelCaine). He has won seven Golden Globe Awards, and received a Kennedy Center Honor in 2001. In 2010 he was the [[LargeHam very enthusiastic]] honorary starter for the Indianapolis 500. In 1994, he became one of the youngest actors to be awarded the American Film Institute's Life Achievement Award. He is internationally renowned for his often dark-themed portrayals of neurotic characters, such as SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker in the Creator/TimBurton ''Film/{{Batman}}'' movie and Randle [=McMurphy=] in ''Film/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest''. Also known for keeping up his career, as he has to approve of the script personally to make the movie and thus often avoiding [[MoneyDearBoy only doing his roles for the money.]] Also, because Nicholson is a MASSIVE [[UsefulNotes/NationalBasketballAssociation Los Angeles Lakers]] fan, attending every home game, his shooting schedule has to revolve around the Lakers schedule. However, he will still take a pretty big paycheck...
