Hollywood actor Jack Nicholson once threatened to set fire to the movie set of 2006 film 'The Departed' - after director Martin Scorsese asked him to think up ideas for a scene.
The star admits that when Scorsese asked him to come up with a few suggestions for the next day's filming, his imagination ran wild and he seriously considered burning down the set in a spectacular stunt.
Nicholson's rational side took over however, and in the end he did not go through with his idea.
"I didn't sleep that night," he said. "Next day, I asked the prop man to get me a gun... I also asked him to get a fire extinguisher.
"That's what happens when you set me loose. I was literally planning to set the set on fire."
