Jack is back.
Los Angeles Lakers superfan Jack Nicholson made his grand return to the Staples Center on Tuesday for his favorite NBA team’s first game of the new season.
Nicholson – who had not been to a game in over a year – arrived in a black SUV wearing a brown Lacoste polo shirt, black slacks, a black jacket and loafers.
The actor, 84, was greeted outside the downtown Los Angeles arena by a slew of fans asking for his autograph.
Nicholson obliged, and was photographed signing a few poster boards.
Once inside, the longtime basketball fan sat in his signature courtside seat. He was seen at times wearing a black face mask to abide by the venue’s COVID-19 policy.
According to a local ABC news outlet, the arena requires proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within the past 72 hours to be admitted to games. Any guests over age 2 are also required to wear a mask.
The last time Nicholson attended a Lakers game was more than a year ago.
He was last seen rooting for his home team in January 2020 with his son, Ray Nicholson, right beside him.
Unfortunately for the “Something’s Got to Give” star, the Lakers did not take home the win during Tuesday night’s season opener. The Golden State Warriors beat LA, 121-114.
Aside from Nicholson, there was another A-lister that had a front row to all the action.
