It seems nowadays Jack Nicholson draws more attention to himself at sporting events than on the big screen. The actor will add another event to the bucket list when he waves the green flag to start off the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday.

The three-time academy award winner is also a notable Yankees and Lakers fan. Since the Yankees sit in second place and the Lakers lost their Western Conference Finals lead, I guess he has to find something else to do.

Nicholson won’t be the only star involved at the race however. Michael Andretti will take actor Mark Wahlberg for a pre-race spin, in which they expect to hit 200 mph. Singer/songwriter Jewel will perform the national anthem.

Kim Kardashian will apparently be there as well, supporting her sponsor QuickTrim’s car driven by Graham Rahal.
