1-'ABC' was his first movie with Jack Nicholson.
2-'ABC' was his first movie, with Jack Nicholson.
I think 1 implies that he had been in other movies and that 'ABC' was the first movie in which both he and Jack Nicholson acted.
2 on the other hand seems to be saying that 'ABC" was his first movie and that Jack Nicholson was in it as well. But I am not sure '2' is natural.
Am I correct?

It helps it along the way.The comma is odd in #2 and I am not sure it clears up the ambiguity.
