Nick Nolte stars in "Luck" on HBO as the old man. On the big screen, he stars in "Zookeeper," as the voice of Bernie the Gorilla, and "Arthur," alongside Russell Brand, Helen Mirren, Jennifer Garner and Greta Gerwig, as Burt Johnson.

Nick Nolte, a two-time Academy Award nominee for Best Actor, earned his first Oscar nod for his role in the 1991 drama "The Prince of Tides," opposite Barbra Streisand, who also directed the film. In addition, Nolte won a Golden Globe and the Los Angeles and Boston Film Critics Awards for his portrayal of a man trying to help his suicidal sister while uncovering his own haunting childhood memories. He received his second Oscar nomination for his performance as a man battling addiction in 1997's "Affliction," directed by Paul Schrader, as well as Best Actor Awards from the New York Film Critics Circle and the National Society of Film Critics, and garnered Golden Globe, Independent Spirit Award and Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award nominations.

Recently, Nolte provided the voice of Butch in the movie "Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore," and starred in the independent comedy drama "My Own Love Song," opposite Renée Zellweger and Forest Whitaker, which premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. His recent projects also include "Arcadia Lost," Ben Stiller's Hollywood spoof "Tropic Thunder"; the family adventure "The Spiderwick Chronicles"; Hans Peter Moland's "The Beautiful Country," executive produced by Terrence Mallick; Olivier Assayas's "Clean"; "Peaceful Warrior," adapted from the Dan Millman novel Way of the Peaceful Warrior and directed by Victor Salva; and "Neverwas," directed by Joshua Michael Stern and co-starring Ian McKellan, Jessica Lange and William Hurt. Nolte also starred as the voice of Vincent the Bear in the animated feature "Over the Hedge."

Nolte will next be seen in the coming-of-age mixed martial arts drama "Warrior" and the remake of "Arthur," starring Russell Brand in the title role that Dudley Moore made famous.

Nolte's notable film credits include the critically acclaimed "Hotel Rwanda," with Don Cheadle, for which he earned a SAG Award nomination; Neil Jordan's "The Good Thief"; Ang Lee's "The Hulk"; the Polish Brothers' "Northfork"; Alan Rudolph's "Investigating Sex"; Oliver Stone's "U-Turn"; "Jefferson In Paris"; Martin Scorsese's "Cape Fear"; "I Love Trouble"; William Friedkin's "Blue Chips"; writer/director James L. Brooks' "I'll Do Anything"; and the critically acclaimed "Lorenzo's Oil."

His production company, Kingsgate, has several projects in development, among them "White Jazz," based on the James Ellroy script of his best-selling noir novel, and "The Last Magic Summer," an adaptation of the Peter Gent novel of the same name.

In 2000, Nolte returned to his acting roots in the stage production of Sam Shepherd's play "The Late Henry Moss," in which he starred with Sean Penn.

An Omaha, Nebraska native, Nolte began his acting career at the Pasadena Playhouse. He studied with Bryan O'Byrne at Stella Adler's Academy in Los Angeles and traveled for several years, performing in regional theaters, before gaining international recognition with his breakthrough role in the legendary series "Rich Man, Poor Man." Soon after, he made his feature film starring debut in "The Deep," opposite Jacqueline Bisset, and went on to deliver a number of diverse character roles in such films as "Who'll Stop The Rain"";North Dallas Forty," which he developed with author Peter Gent"; "Heart Beat"; and "Cannery Row." His additional film credits include "Down and Out in Beverly Hills," "48 Hours," "Under Fire," "Extreme Prejudice," "Weeds," "Three Fugitives," "Farewell to the King," Martin Scorsese's segment of "New York Stories," Karel Reisz' "Everybody Wins," and Sidney Lumet's "Q&A."
