To begin with, Wuhl was raised in Union, New Jersey. After attending high school, he studied at the University of Houston, in which he was active in the drama group. At that time, he shared a room with the artist and director Julian Schnabel. After several years at the university, Robert decided to drop out of it and pursue a career in acting.

Initially, he worked as a stand-up comedian for several years. Then, he got a role in the comedy film “The Hollywood Knights” (1980) directed by Floyd Mutrux, followed by a minor role in Lyne’s romantic drama “Flashdance” (1983). In 1987, Wuhl portrayed Staff Sergeant Marty Lee Dreiwitz in the film “Good Morning Vietnam” directed by Barry Levinson. The actor was in the main cast of the critically acclaimed romantic comedy sports film “Bull Durham” (1988), which grossed $58 million at the box office. He also created the role of Alexander Knox in the award winning film “Batman” (1989) directed by Tim Burton, the latter grossing $411 million at the box office. The same year, Wuhl starred in other films including “Wedding Band” and “Blaze”. He also starred opposite Eric Idle in the comedy film “Missing Pieces” (1992), and alongside Robert De Niro in the film “Mistress” (1992). Then, the actor landed smaller roles in the films “The Bodyguard” (1992), “Sandman” (1993) and “Blue Chips” (1994), before creating the starring role in the biopic film “Cobb” (1994) by Ron Shelton. From 1996 to 2002, he wrote and starred in the Emmy Award-winning HBO series “Arli $$” as the title character. Robert was also in the main cast of the comedy film “Good Burger” (1997) directed by Brian Robbins.

In 2005, he was a player in the Game Show Network’s “Poker Royale” series, a competition between professional poker players and comedians. In 2013, he appeared in the comedy drama film “Contest” directed by Anthony Joseph Giunta, and recently, he starred as himself in the episode of the series “American Dad!” (2015) aired on Fox channel.

Finally, in the personal life of Robert Wuhl, he has been married to Barbara Koldys Capelli since 1983, with whom he co-starred in the film “Open Season” in 1990. They do not have any children.
