Jack Nicholson | 84

Maybe more than any other actor of his time, Jack Nicholson left a lasting effect. He gave a series of outstanding performances for several decades. Though he began his career in the late ’50s with low-budget king Roger Corman, the actor rose to prominence with a memorable supporting role in Easy Rider.

Nicholson began a prolific decade of work that ultimately established his position in cinematic history thanks to that Oscar-nominated performance in Five Easy Pieces. Soon enough, he cemented his reputation as a legend with Chinatown. He followed his legendary performance in The Shining with films like The Witches of Eastwick and Batman. Every film in his resume cemented his place at the top of the Hollywood pantheon. Given his film investments, Nicholson is one of the greatest actors to grace our screens and an icon in the Hollywood firmament.
