You don’t have to be his “number one fan” to take our ultimate fan quiz (so put down that sledgehammer, Kathy Bates). But you’d do have to know some serious trivia if you want to win the AMC Hollywood Icons Nicholson Pack of DVDs. The prize will go to the first person to correctly answer all 15 of these questions. (If two people post all the right answers at the same time, there will be a tie-breaker.) In addition, the winner will be profiled and crowned the Ultimate Stephen King fan in an upcoming blog entry.
The quiz will run from Friday, April 18 to Friday, April 25 at midnight. The winner will be announced shortly afterward. (Make sure we have your correct name and email in your profile so we can contact you to deliver your prize.)
