Both of his parents were born in Italy; his mother Maria from Nusco, and his father Sal, grew up in Torretta, Palermo Sicily, and in his early days, Robert spoke Italian, but soon learned English as well. He went to Seton Hall high school in Patchogue, New York, later enrolled at Hofstra University, and after graduation launched his acting career.
Robert made his debut with a small role in the film “Contract on Cherry Street” (1977) starring Frank Sinatra, and two years later had a supporting role in Alan J. Levi`s “The Legend of the Golden Gun”. He started the 1980s quite successfully, with roles in Bernard L. Kowalski`s “Nick and the Dobermans” (1980), Russ Mayberry`s “The $5.20 an Hour Dream” (1980), then in the TV Mini-series “The Gangster Chronicles” (1981), which was then made into the film “Gangster Wars” (1981), starring Joe Penny and Michael Nouri, which only increased his net worth by a large margin.
He featured in several small roles in such TV series as “T.J. Hooker” (1982-1984), “The Rousters” (1983), and “The Fall Guy” (1983-1984), before he got his breakthrough role as Jake in the film “The Goonies”, written by Chris Columbus and Steven Spielberg and directed by Richard Donner in 1985, alongside Sean Astin, Josh Brolin and Jeff Cohen. The role confirmed him as an actor, and boosted his net worth as well.
Before the 1990s began, Robert had several more notable roles, including as Max Keller in “Raw Deal” (1986) alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger, “Terrorist on Trial: The United States vs. Salim Ajami” (1988) as Salim Ajami next to Sam Waterston and Ron Liebman, then in the Oscar-nominated “Die Hard” (1988) with Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman in lead roles, and as Franz Sanchez in “License to Kill” (1989) starring Timothy Dalton. His net worth rose steadily.
He transferred the momentum to the 1990s, and continued in the same successful rhythm, landing lead roles in “Maniac Cop 2” (1990), “Predator 2” (1990) with Danny Glover and Gary Busey, “Under Surveillance” (1991), “Illicit Behavior” (1992), “Night Trap” (1993), “Showgirls” (1995) with Elizabeth Berkley and Gina Gershon, and in 1996 he got the role of Agent Bailey Malone in the TV series “Profiler” (1996-2000). Until the end of the 1990s, he also featured in “My Little Assassin” (1999) with Gabrielle Anwar and Joe Mantegna in lead roles, all of which certainly increased his net worth.
In 2001 he portrayed wizard Merlin in David Lister`s “Sorcerer`s Apprentice”, and appeared in movies such as “Soulkeeper” (2001), “Hitters” (2002), which had no major success, and then in 2007 he directed his first film “The Dukes”, starring Chazz Palminteri and himself, which only increased his net worth.
He continued to appear in films, and since 2010 has featured in such productions as “Game of Death” (2010), with Wesley Snipes, “Kill the Irishman” (2011) with Ray Stevenson and Vincent D`Onorfio, “The Great Chameleon” (2012), “Blood of Redemption” (2013) starring Dolph Lundgren, and “The Expendables” (2014) with Sylvester Stallone, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Harrison Ford and Mel Gibson among other stars. Furthermore, Robert is working on several films that are yet to be released, including “Reagan”, “Deported” and “Under the Dark”, so his net worth will certainly increase.
Thanks to his skills, Robert has received several prestigious awards, including Queens Spirit Award from the Queens Film Festival in category Best Director and Best Producer for his film “The Dukes” (2007), and a star on Toronto’s Walk of Fame.
Regarding his personal life, Davi has married three times, firstly to Jan Borenstein (1971–1980), then to Jeri McBride (m. 1980–1990), and to Christine Bolster since 1990; he has five children.
