Jack is a three-time Academy Award winner and 12-time nominee, making him the most nominated male actor in the Academy’s history

“It’s like Babe Ruth stepped into the cage.”

Rob Reiner first came to national prominence with the role of Michael Stivic, son-in-law of Archie and Edith Bunker in  All in the Family (1971–78). That role earned him two Emmy Awards during the 1970s. As a director, Reiner was recognized by the Directors Guild of America with nominations Stand by Me (1986), When Harry Met Sally… (1989), and  A Few Good Men (1992). Other notable films include The Princess Bride (1987) and the heavy metal comedy-mockumentary This Is Spinal Tap (1984).

Reiner has his own extensive legacy in Hollywood, so it’s interesting to hear his take on one of America’s most intriguing, popular and versatile screen personalities, Jack Nicholson:

“Jack comes in prepared. When we’re going to do a reading the first day, he comes and gives it his all. He comes in to work and to work hard. It sent a message to everyone else. Check your egos at the door.”
