I'm so attached to the idea of Jack Nicholson as a rapacious matinee icon, from some of my favorite films like Batman, The Shining, & A Few Good Men, that it's painfully easy to forget that the man is, first and foremost, an artist. Here he is, in a rare one on one interview at EW.com, talking about how he's melded his celebrity into his craft, and how an ashtray full of torn-up money may be his single most evocative piece of work. Oh, and I hear his new movie, About Schmidt, isn't bad, either. I'll let you know after I check it out.
