Edward James Norton, Jr. was born on August 18, 1969 to parents
Edward James Norton Sr, an attorney who works for the National
Trust for Historic Preservation and Robin Norton, a former
foundation executive and teacher who passed away of brain cancer on
March 6, 1997. Edward also has two younger siblings named James and
Molly. From the age of 5 onward, the Yale graduate (majoring in
history) has always been interested in acting. At the age of 8, he
would ask his drama teacher what his motivation in a scene was. He
attended theater schools throughout his life, and eventually
managed to find work on stage in New York as a member of the
Signature players, who produced the works of playwright and
director 'Edward Albee' (qv). Around the time when he was appearing
in Albee's Fragments in Hollywood, they were looking for a young
actor to star opposite 'Richard Gere' (qv) in a new courtroom
thriller, _Primal Fear (1996)_ (qv). The role was offered to
'Leonardo DiCaprio' (qv) but he turned it down. Gere was on the
verge of walking away from the project, fed up with the wait for a
young star to be found, when Edward auditioned and won the role
over 2000 other hopefuls. Before the film was even released, his
test screenings for the part were causing a Hollywood sensation,
and he was soon offered roles in 'Woody Allen' (qv)'s _Everyone
Says I Love You (1996)_ (qv) and _People vs. Larry Flynt, The
(1996)_ (qv). Edward won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a
Supporting Role and received an Oscar nomination for Best
Supporting Actor for his performance in _Primal Fear (1996)_ (qv).
In 1998, Norton gained 30 pounds of muscle and transformed his look
into that of a monstrous skinhead for his role as a violent white
supremacist in _American History X (1998)_ (qv). This performance
would earn him his second Oscar nomination, this time for Best
Actor. In 1999 came the critically acclaimed _Fight Club (1999)_
(qv) and in 2000 came his directorial debut in _Keeping the Faith
