Jack Nicholson is about to retire from acting according to good pal Peter Fonda

It has been rumored for a few years now that Jack Nicholson had retired from acting, but we never really got a confirmation from the man himself. Rumor had it that he couldn't quite remember his lines anymore, whereas others speculated that he was just tired of the industry. Who knows, but I'm still holding out hope that he might come back for one final gig. After all, the guy's last film was 2010's dreadful "How Do You Know." Yikes. Please don't go out on that note Jack.

I'm an unabashed, hardcore Jack Nicholson fan. The man is living legend and he basically owned the 70s and 80s with his charsimatic, loosely stylized acting. In many of his movies he was the sardonic drifter, the eternal outsider, a man that always rebelled against societal structure. 

The New York Post's Page Six has Nicholson's great pal Peter Fonda quoted as saying:

I think he is ­basically retired. I don’t want to speak for him, but he has done a lot of work and he has done very well as a person financially.”

"Sometimes ­people have a reason that you don’t know, and it’s not for me to ask. I don’t call him up and say, ‘Johnny,’ I call him Johnny Hop, ‘What are you doing?’ I would say, ‘How are you, how do you feel?’”

Favorite Nicholson? It's too hard for me to choose one, but I'll give you guys some of his greatest performances: "Easy Rider,"  "Five Easy Pieces," "The Last Detail," "Chinatown," The Passenger," "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," "The Shining," "Terms of Endearment," "Prizzi's Honor," "Batman," "A Few Good Men," "As Good As It Gets," "The Pledge," "About Schmidt" and "The Departed."

Right there folks is one of the greatest actors of all-time.
