The last I heard of Peter Weller – the actor that played Robocop in the first 2 movies of that franchise – he was narrating for the History Channel. Turns out he is a university history professor. Well check this out:
Gram, pictured bottom right, showed up on the Internet after Halloween as perhaps the most adorable Robocop ever. Peter Weller thought so, and sent him this autographed (sort of; autographed by Robocop) photograph. Gram’s dad says “Gram believes the real Robocop sent this to him, because that’s exactly what we told him.” The picture is now framed and on his bedroom wall.
The whole story is on Jim’s blog, where I learned that Peter Weller still does the occasional acting gig.
