Thanks Dir... that was great... what a great pic.

I don't like your jerk-off name, I don't like your jerk-off face, I don't like your jerk-off behavior, and I don't like you, Jerk-Off. Now get the hell out of my beach community.

While I don't think the highway patrol put out that press release to brag ("got an actor!"), it's sad that they feel they need to put out such a release as a pushback against the onslaught of requests for information. (Again, that's my theory as to motive; maybe they really are just gloating.) I mean: "Actor Arrested Under Suspicion of Driving Under the Influence"? That's only a step or two away from Hush-Hush!

But, hey, a great pic. How long 'til Fark gets it, d'ya think?

Sounds to me like he ticked off one too many people, and someone wanted to embarrass the heck out of him. Same thing happened to Winona Ryder. She made an enemy somewhere and so a 'misunderstanding' that probably happens all the time among her kind, got blown out of proportion.

It basically means these people are now out of the 'in' crowd, partly due to their own efforts but also due to the efforts of their enemies. The only reason we never hear Eddie Murphy doing crazy stunts like this is cuz he surrounded himself early on with an 'entourage' of friends and family members who keep him safe and protected, in a number of ways. I doubt he's any less 'clean and sober' than the average celebrity, but he's got people to buffer him from the public when he goes a bit over the top.

Nolte apparently no longer has anyone to catch him when he falls.

Nick looks to be on the cutting edge of indie-rock fashion (c. 1999).

My quest for a 50+ scenester role-model continues... (fingers crossed, hoping I find him).

It's funny cause one of the on-air personalities on the local radio station here (edge) interviewed him the day before he got busted. Apparently, he was pretty wasted for that interview and the clips they occasionally play are both hilarious and sad.

Just kidding. I actually wanted to say that it's really too bad that so many celebrities end up this way that all one can do is shrug his/her shoulders and check the listings for what's coming out friday. Hollywood is sort of perverse that way, I guess. Sadly, like most people, all I really care about is trying to reconcile that photo with the guy in the copy of The Thin Red Line sitting downstairs on the shelf.

And like someone else mentioned, I have to question the amount of details thrown into a report like that. Who really cares if the guy was drooling all over himself when they pulled him over?

heh. seriously, GeekAnimator, i think he meant:

(nick nolte + (hawaiian shirt + wacky hair)) == (theDude => jeff bridges);

I heard Nolte is a Nihilist anyway. There's nothing to be afraid of. (okay, i'm done. bye)
posted by Hankins at 2:13 PM on September 13, 2002


Does anybody else see a resemblance in that photo to GWBush?
Are we sure it's Nick Nolte? Maybe it's just some president dressed up like Nick Nolte!
I smell conspiracy!

His Benz is 11 years old -- what kind of Hollywood star is that?

Come on, Nolte. You're being very undude.

No. 2: Hey, careful, man, there's a beverage here!
posted by fijiwriter at 2:29 PM on September 13, 2002


Maybe his '92 Benz is the 'get-loaded-and-drive' car and he keeps his new rides for when he is sober. You know, in case he wrecks it.
If in fact he was loaded, which we don't know. Someone fetch the lawyers.

He does look alarmingly like the President...

Washed up? He's a shoe-in for this year's Robert Downey Jr award. They don't take celebrity mug shots like that every day, so its a lock.

(Whatever you do, don't let Miguel see this. He's still under the impression that drinking alcohol makes you suave and sophisticated.)

My old, drunk friend Lady Potamus claims to have spoken with Nick and uses this to come out in favor of drunk driving.

More relevant (and less silly) information: according to IMDB, Nolte has a featured role in the upcoming Hulk movie. Plus, he was remarkable as recently as 1997 in Affliction and has worked steadily since that time.

Drunk and ugly? Mais oui! Washed up? Mais non!

Does anyone remember a truly brilliant interview with Nick Nolte that Esquire published two or three years ago, where he was portrayed as a laboratory animal, forever juicing up on all sorts of vightamins and drugs?
posted by MiguelCardoso at 6:27 PM on September 13, 2002


Nick ... a wiser feller than m'self once said ... sometimes you eat the bar, and well, sometimes the bar, he eats you ...

(Is it just me, or does Nick look strikingly like Noelle Bush in that photo?)

Don't split your infinitives.

Bad style perhaps, but not bad grammar.

I believe an evening of fine cocktails with Miguel and Nick would be a most enjoyable experience, one for which I would certainly purchase my very own hawaiian shirt.

I've already got the hawaiian shirt. Grab Miguel and Nick and let's have at it! You're the designated driver, stavros...

CBS NEWS does, Miguel. And by the looks of it, it wasn't a joke.

Q&A, The Thin Red Line, Who'll Stop the Rain, Mother Night, I'll Do Anything, Affliction, Afterglow... the fucker can act. I'll never understand why people expect celebrities to be any less human than non-celebrities. Though I'm not excusing DUI, why is it any more newsworthy than any other DUI?

dobbs, we love destroying the things we place on pedestals. Human nature. Most of today's things-on-pedestals are celebrities. Go figure.

"I actually wanted to say that it's really too bad that so many celebrities end up this way.."

Heck, it's not that they 'end up this way.' Everybody has their bad days, or their upward & downward momentums. I mean I've had times where if I happened to be a world-reknowned celebrity and the papparazzi was following me around they woulda found me face down in a toilet crying for the world to stop spinning.

So Nick Nolte's human. That's not a crime. Operating heavy machinery while under the influence of medication not prescribed to you by a physician: that's the crime. Such moments can hit anybody regardless of celebrity status. The unblinking eye just caught Nolte off guard, is all.

I've read all 52 comments, and I'm still laughing from the song lyric in the headline.

Props to Dirjy.

As for Mr. Nolte, everything I thought has already been said. Namely, that pic is bizarre/fascinating, and this seems pretty normal, US-magazine-fodder kind of stuff.

But the pic is worth the price of admission.
