Robert Pine is currently celebrating his 50th year in front of the camera. His first appearance was on NBC’s "Kraft Suspense Theatre" in 1964 while under contract to Universal Studios. Since then, he has appeared in over 400 movies and TV shows including recent roles in "Frozen," "Jobs," "Parks & Recreation," "The Mentalist," "CSI" and "Castle." He also has a recurring role on the new MTV series "Finding Carter" which has been picked up for its second season.
Pine’s first regular role in a series was in 1976 on "Bert D’Angelo/Superstar" which lasted only 13 episodes. The following year, he found a more permanent spot on "CHiPs," where he played Sgt. Joe Getraer and appeared in all 140 episodes over its successful six-year run on NBC. Recently, the series has found a new life on METV where it plays every day. Pine can also be frequently heard on voice-overs for commercials, animated films, TV and video games.
A year hardly goes by where Pine does not appear in a play locally or somewhere around the country. Most recently, he played in Richmond, Virginia in Ted Lange’s Lady Patriot, which is the fourth play he has done with Ted. His theatrical home is with The Antaeus Theatre Company where he has most recently starred as Geronte in David Ives’s wonderful adaptation of Corneille’s 1648 play, The Liar. His other shows with Antaeus include Noel Coward’s Tonight at 8:30, Cousin Bette and King Lear, which won the LA Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Production.
Pine has served on both the local and national boards of the old Screen Actors Guild and AFTRA performers unions and is currently serving on the SAG-AFTRA National Board.
He and his wife, Gwynne, a psycho-therapist, just celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary. They are the very proud parents of Katie, also a psycho-therapist and Chris, an actor.
