Before His Breakout Role In 'Easy Rider', Jack Nicholson Was In 'The Little Shop Of Horrors'

November 2, 2023

Did you know that the popular 1986 film "Little Shop of Horrors" starring Rick Moranis was based on a movie from 1960?

Jack Nicholson had a small but memorable role in the 1960 film "The Little Shop of Horrors." This film is a horror comedy directed by Roger Corman, and it's known for its low budget and campy style. Jack Nicholson plays a character named Wilbur Force, a dental patient who visits the flower shop where the story takes place.

His character, Wilbur Force, is a masochistic dental patient who derives pleasure from pain and visits the dentist for unnecessary and painful treatments -- the same role played by Bill Murray in the 1986 adaptation.

After watching this clip, it is easy to see how Nicholson landed the role of the Joker in "Batman".
