Was reading in the guardian that he's gettin' the gold watch. 76 yrs old, & apparently forgetting his lines. Fifty yrs of incredible movies(maybe I've seen half); incredibly TWELVE Academy nominations. Quite a 50 yr career, for Hollywood's most devilish actor..ever.

Two questions-the flick you think he acted his best(expecting lots of cuckoo's); as well as the Jack role that was most memorable(lasting impression 4U)?

Best.."Cuckoo's Nest", & supporting in:"Terms Of Endearment"

Memorable?(well here's 2): "Carnal Knowledge"(w/Art Garfunkle, who was great also); & "The Postman Always Rings Twice".

If Christopher Lee can cruise into his 90's still acting then Jack can too!

He was great in The Departed and The Bucket List. Will be missed if he indeed does retire.

I'd rather see him retire than take the Robert DeNiro route and make terrible movies for the next decade.

A lot of classic scenes by him. Although this one is much more recent, it still is my favourite: [Language Warning]

OMG we could've had McKeown!

I think Virtanen was a terrible pick given that he's out for 6 months which will hinder his development. You don't pick someone at #6 under that circumstance, along with the fact that he was given a 3/5 IQ (aka he's dumb). 

God dammit Benning. WHY VIRTANEN? Terrible move.

Down by the River - Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young.

I thought he already was retired. Unless I watch an older movie the only time i ever see him is courtside at Lakers games.

I'd guess 70-80% of CDCers haven't seen his brilliant run(about 20 yrs from late 60's to late 80's)..So different from Pacino, but to me, these two seperated themselves from the rest.

This would be male actors, as Meryl Streep deserves to be placed in the top echelon.

To those who suggest Daniel Day Lewis-I probably wouldn't argue.

Hope he's able to enjoy a long, happy retirement.

Cuckoo's Nest and As Good as it Gets are two of my favourite movies of all time.

The ending of Cuckoo's Nest is art.

The Two Jakes. Was a sequel to China Town made 16 years later and while the movie was mediocre his acting was great.
Somethings Gotta Give. The back and forth between him and Diane Keaton is just fantastic to watch. 2 amazing talents at the top of their game.

Theres many more but those 2 stand out for me.

Maybe but Ledger evolved the role, the way he said the lines and his body movement gave Joker that extra kick of crazy, organized, phychopath, and mystery.
