Jack Nicholson  George Hanson, "Easy Rider" (1969)

Jack NicholsonKnown in Hollywood as the Mulholland Man, he was born as John Joseph Nicholson on April 22, 1937 in Neptune, New Jersey. 

Nicholson appeared int the final episode of SEA HUNT.  “Round Up” Ziv #4.38 airing September 23, 1961 included a young and mostly unknown actor named Jack Nicholson in a very forgettable two-line role delivered only as Nicholson can.  Speaking to Mike Nelson, Nicholson exclaims "How many times I gotta tell you? There ain't no bomb!".  In this last rendition of the series, Mike has to find and disarm a torpedo that an ex-employee "gone postal" has placed in the outflow tube of a hydroelectric generation plant. The Scuba Guy can only give this story a rating of 3 tanks. But an interesting underlying plot that quietly surfaces is the day to day risks that Mike must take in his profession. Shaking his head in disgust, it appears that Mike is thinking about quitting the Scuba diving profession in the last scene as he reflects on the risks he has taken in the last few days or maybe throughout the SEA HUNT series. Was this some sort of subtle message to the audience for the last show?
