Dublin: 10 °C Thursday 29 September, 2022

There've been a load of Jack Nicholson sightings in Dublin... but here's what's actually going on

We have answers.


Over the past day or so, several Dubliners have claimed to have spotted Jack Nicholson wandering around the place.

There were sightings of him at the Jameson Distillery…

In Brogan’s.

On a hop-on hop-off bus tour.

And just randomly on O’Connell Street.


So, is it the real Jack Nicholson?

We’re sorry to report that it’s not Jack Nicholson walking among us, but rather a professional Jack Nicholson lookalike named Norman Deesing.

Here’s Norman Deesing.

There’s definitely a similarity there.

And it looks like Norman is delighted by the media attention.

Earlier this evening, he updated his cover photo on Facebook to this…

FYI, Norman is available to do weddings if that’s the kind of thing that floats your boat…
