Raised in Columbia, Maryland, Norton was drawn to theatrical productions at local venues as a child. After graduating from Yale University in 1991, he worked for a few months in Japan before relocating to New York City to pursue an acting career. He gained immediate recognition for his debut in ''Primal Fear'' (1996), which earned him a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor and an Academy Award nomination in the same category. His role as a reformed neo-Nazi in 1998's ''American History X'' earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor. He also starred in the film ''Fight Club'' (1999), which has garnered a cult following.

Norton has emerged as a filmmaker in the 2000s. He established Class 5 Films, a production company in 2003, and was director or producer of the films ''Keeping the Faith'' (2000), ''Down in the Valley'' (2005) and ''The Painted Veil'' (2006). He has continued to receive critical acclaim for his roles in various ventures, namely ''The Score'' (2001), ''25th Hour'' (2002), ''The Illusionist'' (2006), ''Moonrise Kingdom'' (2012) and ''The Grand Budapest Hotel'' (2014).
