Movie legend Jack Nicholson has signed up to appear in a whisky commercial for CHIVAS REGAL SCOTCH - but only in Asia.

Stars like Nicholson, Bruce Willis, Cameron Diaz and Mel Gibson are paid millions of dollars to star in the ads, with contractual clauses insisting they are never shown in the West.
