John C. Reilly, Jaaaaack Nicholson, and a U2 concert

From an interview w/ Reilly on MSNBC.com

MSNBC: But, look, movie stars do need protection sometimes, no?
REILLY: I had a real eye-opening experience when I was doing “Hoffa” with Jack Nicholson. We’re standing at the urinal, and he invites me to go see U2. He’s like, “I know ‘em. They’re pals of mine—come with me!” So we go to the concert and we’re standing backstage and I’m thinking, “How is this going to work? Are we going to have a phalanx of guards?” Anyway, the show is about to start and the lights go down. The crowd starts this huge cheer, and Jack just walks straight into the crowd alone. He’s like, “Come on, kid!” It was like following MacArthur onto Iwo Jima. I was going with Jack Nicholson into thousands and thousands of people. I thought, “They’re going to tear him to pieces!” But he has this way of getting through it. He was like, “Just come on. Just keep moving.” And it taught me that it’s all in how you handle it. He’s genuine, and he acknowledged people, but he wasn’t living in fear.

I would have never guessed Jack was a fan. Cool.

He introduced U2 at Live-Aid (though he was in Philly)...maybe he got blown by their performance that day...not surprising, really.
