Biography

A contemplative, blue-eyed lead with classically sculpted features, Peter Weller gained stage experience with notable performances in David Rabe's "Streamers" and David Mamet's "The Woods". He entered film in 1979 and, though best known for his roles in the deadpan cult favorite "The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai" (1984) and as the armor-clad title character of "RoboCop" (1987) and its first sequel, "RoboCop 2" (1990), Weller has also been effective in more character-driven dramas such as "Shoot the Moon" (1981) and David Cronenberg's fascinatingly bizarre "Naked Lunch" (1991).
