Morgan Freeman was delighted to have landed a role in comedy THE BUCKET LIST - because it has been his long-standing ambition to star alongside Jack Nicholson. The veteran Oscar winner admits Nicholson first caught his eye in 1970 drama Five Easy Pieces, but he had to wait 37 years before his dream to team up with him came true. He says, "Since seeing Jack in Five Easy Pieces I've been a huge fan. I thought he was jaw-dropping and I've always really wanted to work with the guy and now I have."
