Robert Peters

A character actor and occasional writer/director with deep Oklahoma roots, Robert Peters has created a long career primarily out of playing small parts in a wide range of film and television productions. After his initial screen appearances in the late 1980s, Peters started winning minor roles in major Hollywood movies, including the thriller "In the Line of Fire" (1993). Often cast as an authority figure, he was featured in numerous one-off parts throughout the '90s and 2000s, playing a cop on "The Practice" (ABC, 1997-2004) and a military man on "The X-Files" (Fox, 1993-2002). Though frequently a player in low-profile productions, Peters has appeared in acclaimed films including the immigration drama "A Better Life" (2011) and the Steven Spielberg historical epic "Lincoln" (2012), always lending an unassuming authenticity to every part.
