Robert Wuhl Biography

  • Profession: Actor, Director, Screenwriter
  • Born: Oct 9, 1951
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Although he has a laid back Huck Finn demeanor, actor/writer/director Robert Wuhl is one of the hardest-working denizens of Tinseltown. He began as a comedy writer, functioning as story editor on the cult TV series [[Feature~V175267~Police Squad~policesquad[tvseries]]] and winning Emmys for his work (in collaboration with Billy Crystal) on the annual Academy Awards telecast. A film actor since 1980's [[Feature~V95446~Hollywood Knights~thehollywoodknights]], Wuhl is best remembered for his portrayal of the feckless reporter Alexander Knox in [[Feature~V122085~Batman: The Movie~batman:maskofthephantasm]] (1988), and for his starring stint in [[Feature~V32950~Mistress~mistress]] (1992). One of the more noteworthy aspects of Robert Wuhl's career is his ongoing association with baseball -- he played the bullpen-chattering minor league coach in [[Feature~V7502~Bull Durham~bulldurham]] (1988), and the beleaguered biographer of contentious ballplayer Ty Cobb in [[Feature~V133920~Cobb~cobb]] (1993); and, taking a brief breather from film work, Wuhl wrote the chapter on Roger Maris in author/editor Danny Peary's 1989 compendium Cult Baseball Players. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
