Warner Bros. is trying to get Jack Nicholson to play Robert Downey Jr.'s dad in a new film called The Judge. Nicholson doesn't really have to work if he doesn't want to, and apparently he's very picky about the projects he does take. Needless to say, it would be awesome if he did sign on for the part! I'd love to see Nicholson and Downey Jr. act alongside each other.
Downey Jr. plays a "successful attorney who returns to his hometown for his mother's funeral only to discover that his Alzheimer's-stricken father is the murder suspect. The man must represent his father in court, in the process becoming a better person."
The Judge will most likely be Downey Jr.'s next film project. Nicholson is 75 years old, and if he joins the film it will be his first since 2007's The Bucket List. Sources say that Downey Jr. is supposed to meet with Nicholson later this week.
Would you like to see Nicholson and Downey Jr. star in a film together?
