Biography
Jack Nicholson was a 32-year-old veteran of low-budget movies, most of them produced by Roger Corman, when he captured the attention of Hollywood and film audiences in the cult hit "Easy Rider" (1969). In an Oscar-nominated role, Nicholson portrayed a dissipated Southern lawyer who finds a temporary kind of freedom on the road with two long-haired bikers. Nicholson's breakthrough role established an instant rapport with both male and female filmgoers and set a pattern which many subsequent parts would follow: beneath the exterior of a normal nerd existed the heart and soul of a maniac.
