Robert James DuBois was born and raised in the small Midwestern town of Freeburg, Illinois. His passion for acting was sparked at the age of ten as he watched his older brother, Matthew, take to the stage for the first time at the local children's theater. Inspired by the magic and the imagination associated with the theater, Robert eventually followed in his brother's footsteps, taking on a lead role at the same local children's theater for the next four years.
In 2001, at the age of twenty, Robert moved to Los Angeles, California to attend the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. After graduating he continued to hone his skills by studying with Ivana Chubbuck, Lesly Kahn, and The Second City.
Throughout the years, Robert has appeared in a long list of commercials, working in collaboration with brands like Fiat, Bud Light, Spectrum, Google, Disney, Dawn, ESPN, and many more.
In 2017, Robert earned his first big television credit playing Sergeant Hill in the Netflix series Medal of Honor, produced by Robert Zemeckis.
Robert looks forward to one day working with some of the great filmmakers who have influenced him like David Fincher, Paul Thomas Anderson, Christopher Nolan, and the Cohen brothers.
Robert enjoys camping, hiking, long walks on the beach, and a good cry every once in a while. He loves writing poetry, playing guitar, and obsessive thrift store shopping.
Robert resides in Santa Monica, California with his wife, Jennifer, and his two-year-old son, Jacob.
