NICK NOLTE BIOGRAPHY & FILMOGRAPHY:

Nick Nolte was born on February 8th, 1941 in Omaha, Nebraska with the birth name Nicholas King Nolte to parents, Helen and Franklin A. Nolte.  He attended Westside High School and was very active on the football team.  After graduation he went on to study at Pasadena City College in California and then received a football scholarship to study at a number of universities starting with, Arizona State University in Tempe, Eastern Arizona College and Phoenix College, however he never earned a college degree due to poor grades.
 
Nolte then decided to pursue a career in acting, beginning as a stage actor.  He was able to find work at the Pasadena Playhouse as well as The Stella Adler Academy in Los Angeles.  Even with no formal acting training in his early years, Nolte was then hired to travel around the country and work in a number of regional theaters. 

Along with gaining experience as a stage actor he was also given a chance to work as a model during the 60’s and early 70’s.  He appeared in an advertisement for, “Clairol” hair color and soon began pursuing television and film acting.
 
Nolte received his first big break when he was cast in the television series, “Rich Man, Poor Man” (1976) followed by a role in the film, “The Deep” (1977).  Other earlier film roles of his career were in, “Who’ll Stop the Rain” (1978), “North Dallas Forty” (1979), “48 Hours” (1982) starring Eddie Murphy, "Under Fire” (1983), “Extreme Prejudice” (1987), “New York Stories” (1989) and “Another 48 Hours” (1990).
 
Nick had now made himself desired in the industry and he had built up quite a resume as well as fan base. When he appeared in the film, “The Prince of Tides” (1991), he earned his first nomination for an Academy Award for Best Actor and won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor-Motion Picture Drama.
 
Nolte continued to appear in some of the most successful films in his career with roles in, “Cape Fear” (1991), “Lorenzo’s Oil” (1992), “After Glow” (1997) and “Affliction” (1997) receiving his second Academy Award nomination.
 
Some of his latest roles have been in, “Peaceful Warrior” (2006), “Tropic Thunder” (2008) and soon to release in 2012, “Parker”, “The Company You Keep”, “Gangster Squad” and “The Precious One”.
 
Although, Nolte has had a very successful professional career, his personal life has suffered a little turmoil such as having three failed marriages to Sheila Page from 1966 through 1970.  He then married Sharyn Haddad in 1978 and they divorced in 1983.  His third marriage was to Rebecca Linger and they have one son, Brawley Nolte, who is also an actor and this marriage lasted until 1994.
 
Nolte has also had some legal issues and drug addiction issues.  In 2002 he checked himself into a Hospital in Connecticut after being arrested on suspicion of drunk driving. He had shown in tests a couple days earlier that he had traces of the date rape drug known as GHB in his system.  In 1965 he was actually arrested for selling counterfeit documents and was sentenced to 45 years in jail, luckily the sentencing was suspended and he never had to serve time.
 
He currently lives in Malibu, California and in 2007 his live in girlfriend, Clytie Lane gave birth to his second child, a daughter, Sophie Lane Nolte.
