Jack Nicholson Pulled a Gun on Leonardo DiCaprio


When filming 'The Departed', Jack Nicholson shocked everyone on set by deviating from the script and pulling out a weapon to frighten his co-star Leonardo DiCaprio.

Jack Nicholson provoked a real reaction from Leonardo DiCaprio on the set of "The Departed" by unexpectedly pulling a gun on him during a crucial scene. The multi-Oscar winning film tells the tale of an undercover cop, played by DiCaprio, who infiltrates a gang led by Nicholson's crime boss character.

One famous scene sees the mobster voice his suspicions of a traitor in his midst, and director Martin Scorsese reveals Nicholson shocked everyone on set by deviating from the script and pulling out a weapon to frighten his co-star. And even though the sequence was later edited out, Scorsese admits he is still moved every time he sees the Titanic star's reaction on-screen.

In a new book, Conversations With Scorsese, he says, "The first thing Jack did was sniff the glass and say, 'I smell a rat'... And then he pulled a gun on him. He didn't tell me he had a gun. It was great... we took a lot out, but Leo's reaction is real-time. I still get chills (when he says) I smell a rat. It's so real to me."
