Nick Nolte

Actor

Born: 8 February 1941
Birthplace: Omaha, Nebraska
Best known as: Athletic, gravel-voiced movie star
Nick Nolte got a late start in the movies, making his mark at age 35 in the 1976 TV mini-series Rich Man, Poor Man. He had a box office hit in 1982 opposite Eddie Murphy in 48 Hours, but his turbulent off-screen life seemed to occupy his energies. In spite of a spotty filmography, Nolte is considered a talented character actor and leading man, known especially for his raspy voice and brute masculinity. He's earned Oscar nominations for The Prince of Tides ( 1991, with Barbra Streisand) and Affliction (1997, with James Coburn) and has worked steadily in films for three decades. His other films include: Down and Out in Beverly Hills (1986, starring Bette Midler); Cape Fear (1991, starring Robert DeNiro); The Thin Red Line (1998, with Jim Caviezel); and The Hulk (2003, starring Eric Bana). He's also done voice work for the children's films Over the Hedge (2006) and The Spiderwick Chronicles (2008).
Extra credit: Some sources put Nolte's birth year as 1940.
