American actor Robert John Burke has led an interesting and unpredictable career, ranging from indie art-house film star to temporary Hollywood leading man to reliable supporting player in both TV and movie productions. He didn't make much of an impression until his lead role in Hal Hartley's quirky low-budget romantic comedy "The Unbelievable Truth" (1989). Collaborating with the director again for the well-received road-trip movie "Simple Men" (1992), Burke soon found Hollywood calling; he made the leap to big-budget fare as the heroic title cyborg in "RoboCop 3" (1993). During much of the 1990s, he juggled supporting film roles with the occasional lead, later settling into recurring parts on major television dramas, including "Oz" (HBO, 1997-2003), "Rescue Me" (FX, 2004-2011) and "Gossip Girl" (CW, 2007-2012), with his sharp-jawed good looks still turning up semi-regularly in movies.
