When ROBERT KNEPPER (Johnson) performs, he does so with such love for and dedication to his art that audiences find him irresistible, even when he is portraying man at his most vile. It's not the effort that captures the audience; it's the pure and utterly believable result Knepper creates. Even Theodore "T-Bag” Bagwell, the dastardly villain of the award-winning "Prison Break” is a three-dimensional human in this actor's gifted hands.

Knepper owes his first interest in acting to his mother, who worked in the props department of a community theatre in Fremont, Ohio. This early exposure to the theatre arts led to parts in high school plays, to the drama department at Northwestern University, and finally to New York, where he landed roles in SALOME, LAKE NO BOTTOM, ROMEO & JULIET and A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM. 

Moving west to pursue film work, Knepper's most recent films include HITMAN, GOODNIGHT & GOOD LUCK, HOSTAGE, SPECIES III and THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL. He also starred in the acclaimed series CARNIVALE and won rave reviews for his portrayal of Bobby Kennedy in JACKIE, ETHEL, JOAN: THE WOMEN OF CAMELOT. 

He currently resides in Los Angeles.
