Jack Nicholson’s Top Films from this Millennium

The legendary Jack Nicholson turns 80 today! Yes, we have been blessed with eight decades of his existence and close to six of him in the industry. One of cinema’s most versatile actors, he has played sober, simplistic, romantic characters as well as sinister, menacing, psychopathic characters.

So far, he's performed in over 65 films, earning three Academy Awards of 12 nominations, making him the most nominated male actor in the Academy’s history. Oh and he's not done yet. He'll be playing the titular role in the upcoming film Toni Erdmann, set to release later this year. Starring Nicholson in his first film in seven years, the film is a remake of a German-Austrian film of the same name. We wish the legend a very happy birthday and have a look at his top five films from this millennium, i.e., 2000 onwards.

The Pledge (2001)
Directed by Sean Penn, this mystery film stars Nicholson as a retiring police chief who pledges to catch the killer of a young child.

About Schmidt (2002)
This drama film required him to deliver a very subdued performance, playing a retired professional, Warren Schmidt. Some say it was the best performance of his career, with the touching film serving as the perfect opportunity for him to express his character’s emotions.

Something's Gotta Give (2003)
This rom-com stars Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton as a successful 60-something and 50-something, who find love for each other in later life, despite being complete opposites.

The Departed (2006)
One of his most recent films and easily the best of this millennium, the 2006 thriller directed by Martin Scorsese featured him as Frank Costello, a Boston mob boss, based on a real person. Needless to say, he played it out effortlessly.

The Bucket List (2007)
Starring alongside fellow legend Morgan Freeman, Nicholson stars in this comedy that follows two terminally ill men on their road trip with a wish-list of things to do before they "kick the bucket".
