While he is recognized as one of film’s best-known tough
guys, Robert Davi has been winning the respect and admiration of fans, critics
and fellow artists with his expressive singing. His Album, Davi Sings Sinatra:
On The Road To Romance, produced by the legendary Phil Ramone, catapulted its
way into Billboard magazine’s top ten (#6) traditional jazz chart.
While, Davi Sings Sinatra: On the Road to Romance and his dynamic live performances may have surprised some of his fans, Davi’s love of music and entertaining began at an early age. At 15, he won First Place in the prestigious New York State School Music Association Solo Competition. As a young adult, he studied under several top vocal teachers including the legendary Tito Gobbi, Dan Ferro of Juilliard, Samuel Margolis and most recently, renowned vocal coach Gary Catona.
From the memorable villain, Colombian drug lord Frank Sanchez, in the Bond film “License to Kill” (voted one of the top Bond villains of all time) to his stand-out performances in “The Goonies,” “Die Hard,” “Kill the Irishman,” “The Iceman” and many other films, to the respected series “Profiler” and “Stargate: Atlantis,” Davi has appeared in over 100 movies and many television programs. He has garnered praise from critics, directors and co-stars, including Steven Spielberg, Richard Donner, Blake Edwards, John McTiernan, and Paul Verhoeven. He has acted opposite Marlon Brando, Roberto Benigni, Bruce Willis, Clint Eastwood, Benicio Del Toro, Danny Glover, Michael Shannon, Chris Evans, James Franco, and Val Kilmer, among others. GQ Magazine has compared him to silver screen classics Robert Mitchum and Lee Marvin. His tough exterior masks an inner sensitivity, which he has brought to his roles as a Palestinian terrorist in the award-winning TV movie, “Terrorist on Trial” “The United States vs. Salim Ajami,” and in memorable appearances in “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” “Without a Trace,” “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” “Criminal Minds” The Expendables” and many more. In early 2020, Robert completed filming the first six episodes of a new television series called “Paper Empire” in which he plays the character of Lawrence Fintch, a finance mastermind.
