    Some of his less successful movies are some of my favorites. About Schmidt comes to mind.

    But then there are movies like As Good as it Gets, Terms of Endearment, A few Good Men etc, where he absolutely owns every scene he is in, and in many of them he is up against A List actors and actresses. He is an amazing presence onscreen.

    How about The Pledge, The Border and Chinatown? I really enjoyed him as The Joker in Batman. Witches of Eastwick was entertaining as well. The Last Detail is a classic imo.

    The man rocked. Owned Hollywood, ran serious ass and kicked back in Aspen.

    He will be missed and has been a great actor for years.
    He owns so many rolls that he will for sure be a legend in hollywood.

    According to NBC news tonight, he sent word to them he was NOT retiring but actively reading scripts now for upcoming films. Rumors do indeed stir stories.

    Apparently it was only a rumor. He stated that he is currently looking at script offers.

    He has been my farvorite actor since as long as I can remember. He's smooth and can deliver any line. Plays a great crazy, a good goof, a good guy, awsome bad guy. He can do anything. He's just the shit.

    $hit?

    I feel better now. My ex-wife called me "like Jack Nicholson". Much better. I will try to deactivate the explosive bag of dog poop I left on her porch.
