He won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role as a police chief opposite Sidney Poitier in the film In the Heat of the Night, and was nominated twice for the Academy Awards, once for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Marlon Brando's mobster brother in On the Waterfront and once as Best Actor as the German pawnbroker, Sol Nazerman in The Pawnbroker.\nSteiger was born in Westhampton, New York, the son of a vaudevillian. After serving in the South Pacific Theater of World War II, he began acting in television in 1947 and went on to play the main character in the teleplay \"Marty\" to critical acclaim. In 1951 he appeared in Clifford Odets's production of \"Night Music\" on Broadway, and screen debuted in Fred Zinnemann's Teresa in 1953.
