NAMES IN THE NEWS : Nicholson Enjoys Fatherhood

From Times Staff and Wire Service Reports

What's Jack Nicholson done for kicks lately?

"Had my baby," he says with a grin.

Playing Daddy is "not my most flamboyant role, but I've always liked it," the Oscar-winning actor told USA Weekend magazine in an interview for its latest edition.

Nicholson's daughter, Lorraine, was born four months ago to Rebecca Broussard, 27, a waitress he met in Aspen, Colo. Mother and child live in a carriage house on the grounds of an estate Nicholson owns, and he says he sees them every day.

He said he would like to meet with other dads for lunch to discuss the travails of fatherhood.

Nicholson's latest film, "The Two Jakes," was directed by the actor, who also stars as wisecracking Los Angeles private eye Jake Gittes. It is a sequel to the 1974 movie "Chinatown" and is scheduled to open a week from today.
