Two of my friends said they got their picture taken with Jack Nicholson last night at the Lakers vs. Timberwolves game. Jack Nicholson is a regular at the Lakers home games and he travels on the road a lot to watch his team (The Lakers, of course) play. But my other friend said that he was a “Nicholson Impersonator” and that it really wasn’t him. Well, I wrote about all of this in yesterday’s blog right here on MarkMadsen.com/blog. Then tonight I go to my email inbox and my webmaster has forwarded me an email. Here is what the email said:


‘Jack’ was at the game last night. I know because that was me. In fact, since Jack shaved his head, I look more like Jack than Jack.

I am a Nicholson impersonator and will be attending the International Celebrity Impersonator Convention the end of May in Vegas.

It was a lot of fun last night being Jack but it hurt me to clap for the Lakers. Because of my role as the Lakers number one fan I needed to fulfill the role. You guys did an incredible job though. Congratulations.

Best Wishes

Now before all of you tell me that I’m dumb to believe a random email into my inbox here are the facts:

1) The email was sent from a verified email address of a major fortune 500 company: (i.e. johnsmith@target.com course it was not Target though) as opposed to an “anonymous email” like @yahoo.com or @hotmail.com.

2) John’s email included a link to his bio which is publicly accessible on his company’s website. (i.e. www.target.com/johnsmithbio/ )

3) John is a major executive at his fortune 500 company.

4) His photo showed up on the Fortune 500 company website and here it is. You tell me….does John have a chance at the Vegas convention? I think he’s the favorite!


John, I would love to accept your invitation to go to lunch sometime. Maybe I will bring someone from the organization and we can have some fun with this in the media guide. I hope that you have a great day and I hope that you guys continue to keep the capital markets going strong! (I guess we all should have known something was up when our Jack Nicholson impersonator was sitting about 15 rows up…..the Real Jack is always courtside….even on the road games).
