      Bill Cobbs

      Bill Cobbs

      Highest Rated: 100% Nightjohn (1996)

      Lowest Rated: 6% Ed (1996)

      Birthday: Jun 16, 1934

      Birthplace: Cleveland, Ohio, USA

      Stalwart African-American player who has lent his comfortably weathered features and world-weary demeanor to many supporting roles on stage and screen, Cobbs convinces whether playing stubborn yet dignified fathers, melancholy denizens of bars and pool halls, or sympathetic authority figures. A latecomer to acting, Cobbs began in community theater in his native Cleveland while working as a car salesman. He moved to New York where he worked with the prestigious Negro Ensemble Company. He made his Broadway debut in "The First Breeze of Summer" and later appeared in Anthol Fugard's "Master Harold...and the Boys" and "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom."
