In 2006, Hoffman appeared in six episodes of the Fox drama series Vanished and on the comedy series Quintuplets with Andy Richter, as well as guest-starred on CSI: Miami, MTV’s Short Circuitz, and Campus Ladies. Hoffman has also quickly become one of the breakout stars from MTV’s hit series Wild ‘n Out, an improv show produced by Nick Cannon. Currently in its fourth season, the show has drawn many guest stars (including Tyra Banks, Method Man, Lil’ John, Kevin Hart, and Omarion) and has proven to be an impressive talent showcase for Hoffman, as his effortless comedic timing and creative flair consistently keep him on top in the show’s improv competitions.
In addition to his acting skills, Hoffman has been much soughtafter for his skills as a dancer and choreographer. He shared in an American Choreographer Award for the film You Got Served, in which he also co-starred. He has danced in such films as Guess Who, Coach Carter, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Vanilla Sky. As a dancer, Hoffman has worked with such stars as Christina Aguilera, Usher, Mya, Marilyn Manson, and Ricky Martin, for whom he also served as a dance double in a music video.
Growing up in Florida, Hoffman was first inspired to dance when he was mesmerized by Michael Jackson’s Thriller video. He began his dance training while still in kindergarten and went on to attend a fine-arts high school. He later joined Ballet South, headed by American Ballet Company legend Wes Chapman.
When not acting or dancing, Hoffman spends his time making short films. His wide range of self-depicted characters continues to shock and entertain his growing fan base. The videos can be seen on his website at www.punchrobert.com.
