Birthplace: Omaha, Nebraska, USA

Hollywood leading man Nick Nolte built a solid career playing a wide range of roles, but the actor really stood out when he inhabited characters whose rough exterior belied a complex, sensitive world within. He was nominated for a Golden Globe for his breakout role in the miniseries "Rich Man, Poor Man" (ABC, 1975) and went on to enjoy box office success with "North Dallas Forty" (1979) and the huge action-comedy hit "48 Hours" (1982), one of his most recognized roles. Nolte delivered a memorable turn in "Down and Out in Beverly Hills" (1986) before he stepped into Gregory Peck's shoes for Martin Scorsese's remake of "Cape Fear" (1991) and received an Oscar nomination for his leading role in "The Prince of Tides" (1991). A second Academy Award nod came his way with his performance in "Affliction" (1998), though his career was briefly overshadowed by his DUI arrest in 2002 and the media saturation of his embarrassing mug shot. The lingering effects cursed Nolte's next few efforts, though he regained respect with "The Good Thief" (2003), "Hotel Rwanda" (2004) and the Ben Stiller comedy "Tropic Thunder" (2008), proving his best years were far from being behind him.
