Cecil Taylor Nichols (born March 3, 1959 in Louisville, Kentucky) is an American actor best known for roles in the Whit Stillman films Metropolitan, Barcelona, The Last Days of Disco, and Damsels in Distress. His characters in the first three of these films were insecure, stuttering sidekicks to those of the more outgoing Chris Eigeman. Nichols and Eigeman also played minor roles in the independent film The Next Step, released in 1997, of which Nichols was an associate producer.


Nichols has been married since 1995 to Margarita de Eguilior, a Spanish woman he met during the production of Barcelona. They have two daughters, Alexandra, who was born January 21, 1999, and Lee, born January 10, 2002.

Se basant sur des comptes-rendus véridiques, documentés lors de l'enquête en 1969, le film aborde le scandale et les événements mystérieux qui entourent la mort de Mary Jo Kopechne, l'ancienne directrice de campagne de Robert Kennedy, survenue après que Ted Kennedy eut perdu la maîtrise de sa voiture sur le tristement célèbre Dike Bridge (État du Massachusetts).
