Hollywood Star Jack Nicholson Backs Clinton

Posted on 3/5/2008 3:16:00 PM
Democrat Hillary Clinton's campaign has received support from Hollywood titan Jack Nicholson. Nicholson has endorsed a video compilation of some of his famous film roles in support of Democrat Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton. The video endorsement, popularly dubbed Jack and Hill, has garnered over 1.2 million hits since being posted on YouTube last Friday.

Director Rob Reiner helped Nicholson edit scenes from his movies, including Batman, The Shining, and A Few Good Men, to spell out his support for the former first lady. But it was made without Clinton's approval. As "Jack and Hill" spokesperson Yusuf K Robb clarified, "They (Nicholson and Reiner) decided to do this as something on their own to assist her campaign."

Movie clips juxtaposed with onscreen messages like "Don't we need a president we can trust to be ready to go on day one?" generally give the feeling of "Things could be better, Lloyd. Things could be a whole lot better." And nothing sums it up like the last clip from A Few Good Men that goes "There is nothing on this earth sexier, believe me gentlemen, than a woman you have to salute in the morning." In the wrap up, Nicholson appears as himself to assert, "I'm Jack Nicholson, and I approve this message."

The usually reticent actor has admitted that the Clinton campaign had appealed for help. "Yes, I got a call. They asked me to do something. I explained to [former] President Clinton that I admire a foot soldier but I'm too old to be one. I'm not looking for so-called followers. I'm not that crazy about being interviewed. I don't like the sound of my own voice after 20 minutes."

Elaborating his stand on MTV news, he admitted, "On the other hand, I am Irish. I like being involved in the community. As they say, if you don't educate yourself about the political system you're doomed to be led by inferior people. That's one of my fears."

Like in physics, in politics too every action has an opposite reaction. The parody that Clinton's rival, Barack Obama's supporters have responded with, in the form of another video, is equally popular online.
