Just what a presidential hopeful needs: endorsements from a maniacal crime boss, a homicidal writer, a beaten-up shamus, and a military leader who subverts justice. Oh wait--they're actually all the same person: Jack Nicholson. The Oscar-winning actor and renowned ladies man has pulled together a few good clips from a handful of his movies to offer an endorsement for Sen. Hillary Clinton, who's got a big day ahead of her today in Ohio and Texas. We're sure he meant well, but--the Joker?
The Nicholson montage is on YouTube--you may already have seen it; it's been viewed more than a million times since its posting over the weekend. Nicholson doesn't give many interviews, but he did open up to MTV.com on Monday ("I'm not a talking-points guy, Josh. I'm a rolling cannonball.") about Clinton, rival Barack Obama, and the democratic process.
