Currently a series regular on Tyler Perry's new one hour drama for TLC, "Too Close to Home". But even before his role on this show as Sheriff Mobley, the local law enforcement of Happy, Alabama, he was respected as a notable character actor for over 30 years in Hollywood. Robert has made hundreds of appearances in television shows, had roles in over 40 feature films, performed in over 100 theatrical productions across the country and has recently seen success as a country music singer.
Growing up in the tiny oil town of Electra Texas, being an actor would not have been an obvious career choice, but for Robert, he could think of nothing else. After finishing high school Robert was accepted to the prestigious American Academy of Dramatic Arts (AADA) in Los Angeles, where he studied acting and performed in the AADA Repertory Company. After graduating, Robert wasted no time in securing work as an actor in film, television and on stage.
He was immediately cast in the world premiere musical comedy "Ameritage" that had a successful run of over a year in Beverly Hills. Several guest starring roles on television followed before he secured roles in cult classic films such as "Return of the Living Dead," "Cujo," and "The Bear." Robert then appeared as Lieutenant Frank Conran on the daytime drama "The Bold and The Beautiful" for four years and had a recurring role on "The Young and the Restless."
Since his early career, Robert has amassed a long resume of television guest starring roles on just about every crime drama there is, most recently "NCIS: Los Angeles," "NCIS," "Rizzoli & Isles," "Castle," "Southland" and "Criminal Minds" to name a few.
Although Robert is well known for his dramatic performances, he has had plenty of opportunity to demonstrate his comedic ability in guest starring roles on television shows including "New Girl," "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia,"
He can be seen in several upcoming feature films including "The Last Heist" and the soon to be released comedy "The Tiger Hunter" opposite Danny Pudi and Kevin Pollack.
Robert still enjoys performing live on stage when his schedule permits. Last year in Los Angeles he starred in The Ruskin Group Theatre's world premiere country musical "Sneaky Ole Time," featuring top hits of Grammy and CMA award winner, Paul Overstreet.
Most recently, Robert completed a screenplay in which he will star and is currently in development. Featuring original songs by Paul Overstreet, about a country music singer and his son, titled "Catch a Fallen Star."
Robert resides in Los Angeles with his lovely wife of 31 years, Jennifer. They have one daughter and are proud grandparents of an 8 month old grandson.
