*The homeless man whose golden voice and plea for a job won the hearts of millions in a viral video, is reportedly fielding an offer to appear in an upcoming movie opposite Oscar winner Jack Nicholson.
Williams told Entertainment Tonight that along with job opportunities from the Cleveland Cavaliers, NFL Films and Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, just to name a few, he revealed that Nicholson has reached out to him with an offer.
“As a matter of fact, Jack Nicholson had contacted one of my in-laws who happens to be in Columbus, Ohio,” Williams said. “They’re supposed to be making a movie in which Jack is playing opposite a disc jockey, which he would like me to portray in the movie.”
As previously reported, the former radio man’s career was derailed by years of drug and alcohol abuse until a Columbus Dispatch reporter’s viral video transformed him overnight this week into a Susan Boyle-style sensation.
And it’s been a whirlwind ride ever since. Not only did he record four audio spots for Kraft Macaroni and Cheese yesterday and appear on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” but his newfound fame led to a happy reunion with his elderly mother, though it was nearly delayed due to a tug of war between rival morning gabfests. “The Today Show” and “The Early Show” both wanted the exclusive, according to E! Online.
