Jack is my new hero
« on: December 30, 2007, 09:52:20 PM »

The other Jack - Nicholson.

Was in the airport earlier today looking for something new to read (finished 'I am Legend' on the way down - shorter book than I anticipated).  I picked up a copy of the January Men's Journal among other things - has an interview in it with Nicholson.  This interview - fantastic!  He was funny, insightful, and... well, Jack.

Not available online yet, so here's just a part of it....


Should a man cheat at golf?
Well, I do and I don't cheat at golf.  When I've said I cheat, it's a defense, because you can't be competitive at my age.  Guys out on the course, all they want to do is bet like maniacs.  First of all, you cannot play for enough money that would mean *fudge*-all to me.  I'm here for my own entertainment.  Why should I ruin it with some peckerwood who wants to get all involved in wagering shots?  The surest way out of it is:  "Hey, I cheat."

Golf, to me, is Zen archery.  You have to be able to relax and only focus on the repeatable swing.  You try to compete with yourself in a Zen sense.  Of course, I'm not a very Zen guy.  I've laid in sand traps and cried, and hurled clubs into lakes.

I've gone to find myself.  If I get back before I return, keep me here.

That's about as funny as a screen door on a battleship.

What happens to us in this thread? Do we become *bunghole*s or something?

I think Jack Nicholson would be fun to golf with and have a few beers with afterwards. 

I'm not, however, crazy about his acting.  In my opinion, he seems to be able to play only one role, Jack Nicholson.
