Leonardo DiCaprio vs Jack Nicholson The Departed

For their climactic showdown at a Boston bar in the Best Picture-winning The Departed, Jack Nicholson decided to raise the stakes a bit on co-star Leonardo DiCaprio. According to a new book and an interview with director Martin Scorsese, Nicholson pulled a real gun and threatened DiCaprio with it -- a gun DiCaprio knew was real... and probably loaded.

He got the reaction he wanted, as you can see in the below clips.

"He didn't tell me he had a gun. It was great . . . we took a lot out, but Leo's reaction is real-time. I still get chills when Nicholson says, 'I smell a rat.' It's so real to me." [NY Post]

Here's the scene, unfortunately split into two parts. The gun stuff is mainly in the second clip:

No one does a rat face like The World's Biggest Lakers Fan.

Soldiers have real guns pointed at them every day and nobody thinks of mentioning that. Bsides, this story's bullshit.

@Renovatio: Why would something that happens be news? Why are you surfing a pop culture web site and complaining about the fact that this article is not about soldiers? I hope you're just a troll. If so, well played. If not, just stop.
