Personal Quote:

[Talking about RoboCop 3 (1993)] Peter Weller really defined the character in terms of movement. But there's always room for reinterpretation.


In 2013 at the same time he played a NYPD police patrol officer on Person of Interest (2011) and an NYPD internal affairs detective on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999). Due to his corrupt actions on Person of Interest, his character there could have been investigated by his character on Special Victims Unit. See more »


Frequently plays unfriendly square-jawed, growly-voiced suits, commonly Feds or gangsters, who always seem to be foiling the protagonists.
