Jack Nicholson courted for The Judge

Nov 14 2012, 4:24am CST | by

Jack Nicholson is being courted to play Robert Downey Jr.'s father in his next project, legal drama 'The Judge'.

Jack Nicholson is being courted to play Robert Downey Jr.'s father in 'The Judge'.
Warner Bros. has reportedly made an unofficial offer to the 75-year-old veteran actor to star in the drama/comedy, being developed by Robert's Team Downey production company.
The film will see a successful lawyer, played by Robert, returning to his hometown for his mother's funeral only to discover his estranged father - the town's judge, who is stricken with Alzheimer's disease - is the main murder suspect.
The lawyer decides to represent his dad in court, and in the process finds something new and more decent within himself and reconnects with the family he walked out on years before.
Jack is notoriously picky when it comes to the acting roles he takes - having only made only seven films in the last decade - so it may be hard to get him on board, but sources are hopeful he will commit and say he is due to meet Robert this week.
The script was originally written by Nick Schenk and is to be given a rewrite by Bill Dubuque. David Dobkin is rumoured to be in the frame to co-produce and direct.
Robert has recently finished filming 'Iron Man 3' and is said to want 'The Judge' to be his next film.

Watch Robin Williams Improvise a Hilarious 13-Minute Routine from the Early '80s

Sep 9 2014 12:49pm CDT | Source: yahoo

Among Robin Williams’ many gifts was an unparalleled ability to create comedy out of thin air. Working off a very basic premise (“Robin” is supposed to be shooting a promotional spot for TV director Howard Storm — but can’t keep his jokes in check), Williams invents a completely new routine for every take. He becomes Charlton Heston, Jack Nicholson, Diana Ross, and Barbra Streisand. It’s as inspiring to watch, as it is exhausting.  At the time this ...

Watch: Are These the 100 Most Iconic Shots in Movie History?

Sep 3 2014 12:05pm CDT | Source: movies.com

Film is a visual medium, so it makes sense that cinema history is filled with countless unforgettable shots and sequences. The folks over at CineFix tackled the unenviable task of trying to cull over a century’s worth of the stunning sequences down to a measly 100 that comprise the greatest of all time. Interestingly enough, the video that is the fruit of their labor proves they basically nailed the assignment. No small feat, given the sheer n ...
