Chaos Killed the Dinosaurs

My mom put me in a Pampers commercial on TV. — Christian Slater

Christian Slater is on the Today show this morning. I'm not sure if he is going to become a member of the morning show or not, but several years ago he was an up–and–coming superstar actor. In the late '80s he was on a role appearing in a great many solid movies, but then his well–documented lifestyle got in the way of his success. Heathers and Pump Up the Volume were hits for him.

Back then Jack Nicholson also was a rockstar actor, having hit after hit. His role as the Joker in the original reboot of Batman was classic. Nicholson's A Few Good Men, Hoffa, and As Good As It Gets were huge in the '90s.

In the mid–90s I started thinking that it would be awesome if Nicholson would play Slater's father in a movie. The actors are similar, separated by generations. They have looks in common, as well as their voices. It would still be great if the duo would appear as father and son in a movie. How cool would that be?
