Rob had to wait nearly 30 years, and for the ugliest man in Australian business history to be played, before he would land a lead role in a drama series. But when the chance to play Kerry Packer came, he was ready… but only just.
As a jobbing actor, life was tough: in his first ever movie role he had his head flushed down a toilet in The Year My Voice Broke, he got called a ‘flamin’ Mongrel’ by Alf from Home and Away, was shot dead on Water Rats and blew himself up on Blue Heelers. Dying is fun for a while, but something had to change if he was going to make a living out of it.
Rob’s story of stepping up from bit part actor to playing an Australian icon, while along the way raising millions of dollars to produce his own shows is a hilarious ride, where a chance meeting with Tom Cruise, a romantic moment with Michael Buble and a primal fear of being discovered a fraud are all part of the overnight success that took 25 years to build.
Rob’s down to down to earth delivery, astute character observations and self-depreciating humour are a world away from a corporate presentation – perfect.
