Jack Attack! Impostor Caught Using Jack Nicholson’s Photo for Fake ID

Is Jack  Nicholson really as good as it gets? One inventive perpetrator  seems to think so!

A Brazilian man was busted after he presented a fake ID bearing a photo of  the Oscar-winning actor while trying to open a bank account.

We’ve heard of obsessive fan tributes before, but this one is positively  criminal, yes?

Per CNN, Ricardo Sergio Freire de Barros, 41, was arrested  yesterday in the Brazilian city of Recife and charged with use of false  documents and falsification of a public document.

Apparently, cops had been monitoring him for several months after receiving  reports that Barros was skipping around town fraudulently opening bank accounts  and credit cards, and then racking up huge, unpaid debts.

Indeed, police found a several fake IDs and checkbooks on him when he was  arrested.

The Nicholson photo that Barros used couldn’t have been more obvious. It’s a  famous portrait taken by renowned celeb photographer Martin  Schoeller that was first published in Entertainment Weekly in 2003 and  has since been exhibited in museums worldwide.

Nicholson remains the most lauded male actor in Oscar history, racking up 12  nominations and three wins. He also scored one of the most lucrative paydays in  Hollywood when he bagged a reported $50 million from his back-end earnings on  1989’s Batman.

Maybe Barros thought some of Nicholson’s good fortune would rub off on him?  Now that’s a joker!
