In need of a crazy dude with just a touch of charismatic charm? Jack Nicholson's your man. Whether he's The Joker, McMurphy or Jack Torrance, unless you've had your two frontal lobes removed, Nicholson can creep the bejesus out of anyone. His disturbing characters define text book psychopaths and, in the only way Nicholson can, they all offer alluring appeal. Nobody plays a better antihero than Jack, but as he bypasses retirement age, his typecast has slowly shifted from the captivating madman to the endearing grouch in movies such as The Bucket List, Anger Management and Something's Gotta Give. Either way, he will still always be nuts.
