Jack Nicholson, a star whose presence has felt like one of the few constants in Hollywood for the past five decades, has reportedly retired from acting. RadarOnline is citing “film insiders” in its story that the 76-year-old actor has quietly stepped away from acting for good. The three-time Academy Award winner last appeared in James L. Brooks’ How Do You Know with Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, and Owen Wilson. The gossip site claims that the actor’s memory loss has led him to decide to put acting behind him.
I’m kinda hoping this isn’t true, because the guy has a gift for picking fantastic scripts and then delivering every line like it’s solid gold. Plus, without him, we’re going to have to suffer through Jonah Hill in more dramatic roles, and we all know he’s way too full of himself as it is. Come back Nicholson! Before it’s too late!
