Ralph FiennesSpider

The Good Girl

About Schmidt
• Industry veteran Jack Nicholson tells us all about his newest role as cranky pensioner Walter Schmidt, and why it was a part that he loved to play.

• Hollywood bad boy Ray Liotta talks about his new role in this gritty cop tale, where the line between the good and bad guys is almost non-existent
