Date of Birth : Oct 16th 1958

Robbins’s acting career began at Theater for the New City, where he spent his teenage years in their Annual Summer Street Theater and also played the title role in a musical adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince. After graduation from college in 1981, Robbins founded the Actors’ Gang, an experimental theater group, in Los Angeles with actor friends from his college softball team (including John Cusack). He also took small parts in films, such as the role of frat animal “Mother” in Fraternity Vacation (1985) and “Lt. Sam ‘Merlin’ Wells” in the iconic fighter pilot film Top Gun (1986). He played in The Love Boat, as a young version of one of the characters in retrospection about Second World War. His breakthrough role was as pitcher Ebby Calvin “Nuke” LaLoosh in the 1988 baseball movie Bull Durham.

He received critical acclaim and won the Best Actor Award at Cannes for his starring role as an amoral movie executive in Robert Altman’s 1992 film The Player. He made his directorial and screenwriting debut with 1992’s Bob Roberts, a mockumentary about a right-wing senatorial candidate. Robbins then starred alongside Morgan Freeman in the critically acclaimed The Shawshank Redemption (1994), which was based on Stephen King’s short story.

Robbins has written, produced, and directed several films with strong social content, such as the critically acclaimed capital punishment saga Dead Man Walking (1995), starring Sarandon and Sean Penn. The film earned him a Oscar nomination for Best Director. His next directorial effort was 1999’s Depression-era musical Cradle Will Rock. Robbins has also appeared in mainstream Hollywood thrillers, such as 1999’s Arlington Road (as a terrorist) and 2001’s Antitrust (as a malicious computer tycoon), and in comical films such as The Hudsucker Proxy, Nothing to Lose, and High Fidelity. Robbins has also acted in and directed several Actors’ Gang theater productions.
