Jack Nicholson tells a Lakers fan he'll soon be shooting in Philly

Jack Nicholson told a fellow Lakers fan that he'll soon be shooting a movie in Philadelphia. A source reports that his son spoke to Nicholson, a courtside fixture at Lakers games for years, at one of the two Lakers/Magic NBA Finals games at the Staples Center. The kid said hello to Nicholson and mentioned he lived near Philadelphia which prompted the actor to say that he would be working in the area very soon.

Jack Nicholson told a fellow Lakers fan that he'll soon be shooting a movie in Philadelphia. A source reports that his son spoke to Nicholson, a courtside fixture at Lakers games for years, at one of the two Lakers/Magic NBA Finals games at the Staples Center. The kid said hello to Nicholson and mentioned he lived near Philadelphia which prompted the actor to say that he would be working in the area very soon.

Nicholson is undoubtedly referring to the "Untitled James L. Brooks Comedy," formerly called "How Do You Know," in which he's been reported to have been considering taking the role of Paul Rudd's father. Bill Murray was first cast in the role. The film is a love triangle between Reese Witherspoon, the professional-type Rudd, and Owen Wilson, a baseball player. A film spokesman says Nicholson's casting has yet to be confirmed but that the movie starts shooting here in early-mid July after they wrap in D.C. Working with Brooks has proven successful for Nicholson, who won a Best Actor Oscar for Brooks' "As Good As It Gets."
