You don't know Jack! Brazilian cops bust man using Nicholson's face on fake ID

Some people just can't handle the truth. Others have a tough time with the lies too.

Civil police in the northwest Brazilian city of Recife arrested Freire Sergio Ricardo de Barros on Tuesday for trying to open a bank account using fake documents.

Just a small problem: one of his fake government ID cards featured a photo of a stern-looking Jack Nicholson, one of the most-recognized men in the world.

And 41-year-old Barros looks nothing like the 74-year-old Oscar-winning American actor.

    I would have loved to see a picture of the guy who tried to pull this off...a three decade difference notwithstanding, what would make this guy think he could get *away* with this?

    Reminds me of the beer commercial where a bear is buying beer and using a picture ID from some hairy guy.
