>> well, jack nicholson , it's interesting you would say that because a lot of us wondered if there was any truth to a big story we woke up to out of hollywood this morning. it was an anonymously sourced report saying that jack nicholson of all people has quietly retired from acting, due in large part to memory loss . today, however, when asked for comment by nbc news, we received an adamant denial from nicholson through a spokesman who said the 76-year-old actor is very much still in the game , is suffering no memory loss or dementia and, in fact, is reading scripts for future film projects.
