Profile Bio Text
Peter Frederick Weller (born June 24, 1947) is an American film and stage actor, director and lecturer. He is best known to moviegoers as the titular character of RoboCop in the first two RoboCop movies as well as Buckaroo Banzai in the cult-classic The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension. Weller was born in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, the son of Dorothy, a homemaker, and Frederick Weller, a lawyer, federal judge, and former helicopter pilot for the Army who often flew President Lyndon B. Johnson. Weller had a "middle-class Catholic" upbringing. As a result of his father`s army work, Weller spent many years abroad during his childhood. His family lived in Germany for several years before eventually moving to Texas, where he attended Alamo Heights High School in San Antonio. While enrolled at North Texas State University (now the University of North Texas), he played trumpet in one of the campus bands. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre, and began his acting career after graduating from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.
Weller is a contributor to the History Channel in several productions, credited as "Peter Weller, Syracuse University," where he is an adjunct faculty member. He is a graduate student in art history at UCLA, focusing on the Italian renaissance. Weller also hosts the series Engineering an Empire for the network. In 2006, Weller joined the cast of the critically acclaimed drama series 24 as terrorist collaborator Christopher Henderson. Weller received a "cheer" in TV Guide`s "Cheers & Jeers" section for his performance. In December 2006, Weller starred as architect Frank Lloyd Wright at Chicago`s Goodman Theatre in "Frank`s Home", a new play by Richard Nelson.
