In his 20s, Jeff Kober decided that the movie studios of L. A. held more promise than the ranches of Montana, so he relocated in the hopes of becoming an actor. After a debut role as a police officer in the cult sci-fi series "V", about a race of lizard-like aliens who try to take over Earth, Kober played a murderous drug dealer who hunts down a character played by a post-"The Breakfast Club" Anthony Michael Hall in the action thriller "Out of Bounds". In 1988, Kober landed a breakout role as intense Marine Sergeant Evan "Dodger" Winslow on the critically-acclaimed series "China Beach", which detailed the horrors of the Vietnam War through the eyes of the nurses, doctors, and volunteers stationed at an evacuation hospital. After the series ended in 1991, Kober took a rare comedic role as a sweet-but-slow, genetically-enhanced soldier in the cartoonish action drama "Tank Girl", based on the popular British comic book. He later portrayed modern day vampire Daedalus on the short-lived fantasy horror series "Kindred: The Embraced", showcasing his considerable artistic talents through paintings that were featured on the show. After appearing in numerous supporting TV and film roles, including a stint as magical drug dealer Rack on the cult supernatural series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", Kober landed a recurring role as a rival gang member on the motorcycle club drama "Sons of Anarchy".
