“People ask me how long I've been in the business. I always tell them, 'Long enough to have no illusions, but not yet long enough that I'm not still jazzed about giving it everything I've got for as long as it takes to do the best job possible.'"
Bob has spent the last 35 years acting professionally in theater, film, and television. He has found recognition and success in each medium.
He studied acting at the University of Delaware’s acclaimed Professional Theatre Training Program, concentrating on the Meisner acting method. His earliest roles straddled the classics and the avant-garde -- from Marc Antony in Julius Caesar and Oberon in A Midsummer Night's Dream to Abraham in the experimental play of the same name.
From those early forays, he jumped whole-heartedly into the craft, both on-screen and on-stage. On the silver screen, he's appeared in over 21 films, from big-budget studio pics --The Sixth Sense, Philadelphia, Unbreakable, Addicted to Love, Burn After Reading, and A Perfect Murder, to name a few -- to the leads in award-winning quirky independents like Touched, Frayed, 99 Percent Sure, Victim's Song, and Bamboo Shark.
On the small screen, he starred as conman preacher Art Thou in the sitcom Church of the New Millenium, and as agent Sam Gideon in the internet soap opera, The Edge. He also spent two decades as the on-air host of In the Kitchen with Bob, the top-rated show on retailing giant QVC.
On stage, Bob's brought dozens of great characters to life, in plays like Talk Radio, The Seafarer, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Burn This, Waiting for Godot, God of Carnage, Twelve Angry Men, August: Osage County, and Casa Valentina, among dozens of others.
Bob's found success as a writer as well -- three of his screenplays have been optioned by Hollywood (the latest, MUTI, starring Morgan Freeman and Cole Hauser, is set for release by Lionsgate in summer 2022), and five of his stage plays have been produced on professional stages, one internationally.
" I love the collaborative nature of these arts, " Bob says, "and my one goal as part of the team is to do the best job I can for you on whatever it is you're asking me to do. Come at me with that same attitude, and I guarantee you there's nothing we can't achieve together."
