In a career spanning over two decades, character actor Robert David Hall has amassed numerous credits in film and television. His feature film work includes F. Gary Gray’s The Negotiator, starring Kevin Spacey and Samuel L. Jackson; Paul Verhoeven’s Starship Troopers, starring Casper Van Dien and Denise Richards; and Michael Apted’s Class Action, starring Gene Hackman and Laurence Fishburne.
In 1978, an 18-wheel truck struck Hall’s car and he was severely burned when his gas tank exploded, leading to the amputation of both legs. Today, he walks comfortably on two prosthetic limbs. It was Hall’s role as a burn survivor in Apted’s Class Action that most closely parallels his real life.
Hall’s appearance in Class Action led to television guest-starring roles in West Wing, Brooklyn South, Touched By An Angel, Promised Land, Love and War, and Highway to Heaven; and recurring roles on LA Law, Family Law, The Practice, High Incident and Life Goes On. He also appeared as Samson in TNT's Emmy-winning mini-series Andersonville, directed by John Frankenheimer.
In addition to acting, Hall’s voice can be heard on hundreds of commercials, animated series and narrations. He has a keen interest in music, playing the guitar and performing with his band (www.robertdavidhallmusic.com). For more than four years, he was the daytime voice and music director of KNX-FM, a legendary CBS alternative music station in Los Angeles.
A devoted community activist and one of the most prominent disabled actors working today, Hall proudly serves on the Board of Directors of the National Organization on Disability. He completed his term as a National Board Member of the Screen Actors Guild, and is National Chairman of the Performers with Disabilities Caucus for SAG, AFTRA and EQUITY. He sits on the boards of both The Mark Taper Forum’s Other Voices Project and The Media Access Office.
