Nick Nolte is doing great

has photos of Nick Nolte at Kauai Airport Monday night passed out on the terminal floor. According to fellow passengers, Nick was passing in and out of consciousness for more than two hours after their flight was delayed due to engine problems.

According to the source, Nolte was still extremely friendly despite his groggy state — chatting with fans and allowing passengers to snap photos, however, he wasn’t entirely functional. “At one point we helped him put a dollar in the vending machine.”

This would be sad if it was anybody except Nick Nolte. It might actually be a step up for him. Compared to his normal routine of digging through dumpsters and offering sexual favors for booze money, this is like attending some fancy ball.
