Personal Quote:

I like weird things. I've tried to gravitate toward the incredibly strange.


During the making of The Thing (1982), Rob lived on the set in Los Angeles, California, where he worked seven days a week for over a year. He slept on set and in laboratories. When the project was completed, John Carpenter sent him to the hospital where he was diagnosed with extreme exhaustion. Rob vowed never to work so hard again. See more »
