Will Jack Nicholson Play the President?

Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Jack Nicholson doesn't act much these days, but Tom Cruise is hoping to change that.

Cruise and director Doug Liman recently visited Nicholson's home to pitch him on a film they're set to work on, El Presidente, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The comedy will focus on a Secret Service agent who goes on the run with the former president he’s assigned to protect.

Cruise reportedly told his 76-year-old A Few Good Men co-star he won't move forward with the film unless Nicholson agrees to play the former president.

Nicholson last appeared on the big screen in the 2010 romantic comedy How Do You Know.
