Robert Knepper


Actor Robert Knepper is notorious for playing ominous characters, and has gained a slew of worldwide followers just for it. Before he took on villainous roles, Knepper grew up in Ohio, where he fell in love with the acting world. He first got a taste for acting thanks to his mother, who worked at a local community theater’s props department. For several years, Knepper, himself, also worked at the community theater and even participated in high school productions. He decided to make a career out of it by studying drama at Northwestern University in Illinois, and then set off to make something of himself in Hollywood. He made his film debut in the 1986 Blake Edwards film “That’s Life!,” alongside Jack Lemmon and Julie Andrews. He’s also appeared in films like “Hitman,” “Transporter 3” and “The Day the Earth Stood Still.” Today, he has taken on more evil parts and is most famous for portraying Theodore “T-Bag” Bagwell in “Prison Break.” He earned two nominations for that role: a Teen Choice Award and a Satellite Award. Ever since T-Bag, Knepper has stolen fans hearts as Samuel Sullivan on “Heroes,” Simeon on “SGU Stargate Universe,” Tommy Dolan on “Carnivale” and Special Agent Shue on “Thieves.” Most recently, he took a stab at a different type of mysterious thriller when he portrayed Billy Grimm/Roger Reeves on The CW’s “Cult.” The series was extremely short lived and was not renewed. That shouldn’t get fans down, as he continues to create projects. In 2013, he wrapped production on the film “R.I.P.D,” which also stars Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges, Kevin Bacon and Mary-Louise Parker. Regarding his personal life, he has one son, Benjamin, with ex-wife, Tori Knepper nee Herald. Other than Los Angeles, he prefers shooting in Vancouver, Canada, where his ex-wife resides, so he can keep in touch with his family. Knepper currently resides in Southern California.
