Until 2016, with the release of Suicide Squad, Jack Nicholson was the only still-living actor to have played the Joker in an official live-action Batman film, as Cesar Romero, the Joker from the live action Batman TV show, died in 1994 and Heath Ledger, the Joker from The Dark Knight, died in 2008.In November 2014, Jared Leto was cast as the Joker for Suicide Squad.When I am cast in a movie where I feel that the woman's part is more interesting, I usually start thinking about Spencer Tracy and Fred Astaire.
Nicholson is also supremely talented, uncommonly insightful, and totally absorbing on-screen.
He was worth more than $150 million by age 59 and was able, at that time, to choose projects according to his whim.
With the charisma of star-personality, he has been nominated for the Oscar ten times and won as Best Actor for "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" in 1975 and "As Good As It Gets" in 1998.

There's no melodrama; there's no device, It's just about a human being.When I come up against a director who has a concept that I don't agree with, or maybe I just haven't thought of it or whatever, I'd be more prone to go with them than my own because I want to be out of control as an actor, I want them to have the control, otherwise it's going to become predictably my work, and that's not fun. I worry about how I'm going to do it, if I can do it...Then I walk on set and the director says, ' Roll', and all of a sudden, all of it disappears and it's all happening, and I relax, and I'm doing what I do, and I'm not even thinking about it.Nicholson, a notorious womaniser, had an unusual childhood, believing his grandparents were his parents and his young mother was his big sister— a mind-f'ck which may have rubbed off on his acting choices— his first films were The Cry Baby Killer, The Terror, The Shooting, Back Door to Hell, and The St. His romantic side had to wait 25 years to come out in 1983's Terms of Endearment.American actor and recognized major star after a number of years of playing lesser roles.He is known for cynical, sadistic roles and for being smug and sexist to the core.
