Nicholson, DeVito join NJ Hall of Fame

(AP) - Bruce Springsteen introduced Danny DeVito into New Jersey's Hall of Fame then the two teamed up to perform "Glory Days" in tribute to their home state.

Actors Jack Nicholson and Susan Sarandon, author Judy Blume and 10 other prominent New Jerseyans also were inducted into the New Jersey Hall in Newark on Sunday. Nicholson, a devout Los Angeles Lakers fan, skipped a playoff game to attend.

DeVito said the Jersey influence runs through all his work.

Rounding out the class were Olympian Carl Lewis; architect Michael Graves; singer Frankie Valli; astronaut Wally Schirra; musicians Les Paul and Count Basie; author Philip Roth; former President Woodrow Wilson; former Supreme Court Justice William Brennan; baseball player Larry Doby; and women's rights advocate Alice Paul.
