THE SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES

NICK NOLTE (MULGARATH) has, in recent years, successfully added to his credits with performances in top contending films such as director Paul Schrader's "Affliction,” for which he received Academy Award®, Golden Globe and Independent Spirit Award nominations for Best Actor; Oliver Stone's "U Turn” co-starring Sean Penn and Jennifer Lopez; "Afterglow” produced by Robert Altman; "Jefferson in Paris,” in which he portrayed Thomas Jefferson; Martin Scorsese's thriller remake "Cape Fear”; and "The Prince of Tides,” in which he starred opposite Barbra Streisand and received an Oscar® nomination for Best Actor and won the Golden Globe as Best Actor from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Nolte was most recently seen in several independent films, including the French ensemble "Paris, je t'aime,” "The Peaceful Warrior” and the critically acclaimed "Hotel Rwanda.” He was also heard in DreamWorks' animated "Over the Hedge” as the voice of Vincent the Bear. He recently wrapped production on the comedy "Tropic Thunder,” directed by Ben Stiller. He starred opposite Julia Roberts in "I Love Trouble” and as a basketball coach in "Blue Chips,” for director William Friedkin. Additionally, Nolte starred in "I'll Do Anything” for writer-director James L. Brooks, and in the critically acclaimed "Lorenzo's Oil,” co-starring Susan Sarandon.

Nolte, an Omaha, Nebraska, native, played college football before he discovered theater and began his acting career at the Pasadena Playhouse. He then studied briefly with Bryan O'Byrne at Stella Adler's Academy in Los Angeles, after which he traveled for several years performing in regional theater.

Landing a breakthrough role in the legendary television series "Rich Man, Poor Man” marked the beginning for Nolte, launching him into international fame. Following its success, he made his feature film debut starring in "The Deep” opposite Jacqueline Bisset. Nolte has never looked back.

Diversity of character became Nolte's signature in his early film career, with roles as a drug-smuggling Vietnam veteran in "Who'll Stop the Rain”; a disillusioned football star in "North Dallas Forty,” which he developed with author Peter Gent; freespirited beat-era writer Neal Cassady in "Heart Beat”; and a reclusive marine biologist in "Cannery Row.”

Nolte continued to challenge himself with such character roles as the vagrant in "Down and Out in Beverly Hills,” a tough cop in "48 Hrs.,” an American photojournalist in "Under Fire” and a determined lawman in "Extreme Prejudice.” He created another unique character in "Weeds”: an ex-con turned playwright.

Other Nolte film credits have included "Three Fugitives,” "Farewell to the King,” Scorsese's segment of "New York Stories,” Karel Reisz' "Everybody Wins” and Sidney Lumet's "Q & A.”
