James "Whitey" Bulger

James (Whitey) Bulger and his girlfriend
Apprehended at last!

Third degree, Jack Nicholson played the character modeled after Whitey Bulger in  the 2006 film that finally won Marin Scorsese the Best Director Oscar, The Departed.  Here is a clip of a documentary about the connection of the Hollywood film to the real-life Bulger.  
Here is the official trailer for The Departed and some fun clips from the movie.  THERE IS STRONG LANGUAGE AND EXTREME VIOLENCE IN THIS FILM.  I had a pretty vivid nightmare last night about running into Whitey Bulger last night.  You see, when he first moved to California, I was living there, just a few miles from him, down the beach!

Mr. Nicholson also played the main character in Stanley Kubrick's 1980 master horror movie of Stephen King's novel, "The Shining".

Stephen King is two degrees from Blessed John Paul II as we learned in the post that bears his name.
