Robert B. Martin, Jr. began performing as a child, his strange like-able quality and chameleon like looks have garnished him some very unique and eclectic roles in a multitude of International FIlm, TV, and stage projects. He holds the distinct honor of being the first teenager to ever be "call blocked" and has starred in 100's of commercials including Kodak's #1 commercial of all time, "HoneyMoon" with Monet Mazur portraying his bride. His film characters are just as eclectic and span the array of genres from Laura Prepon' personal Gimp in Dewey Nicks film Slackers (2002) for Destination Films to SuperBilly Hill Billy, a role which he created, in the cult comic book classic The Mystery Men. On stage he has starred in numerous productions, but his proudest production is the critically acclaimed one-man show "Trailer Trash" and "Trailer Trash Revisited" about his family, which he wrote and starred and performed to sold out crowds. As a director, some of his favorite spots he's created and directed including the award winning Anti-Smoking Campaign for Maris, West & Baker, which are aimed at the teen market, Levi's Poetry "Love", and the spots from Nice Guys Finish Last which have gone on to win a multitude of advertising awards for his famous "reveal." As World Wide Creative Director for Equality Source, Robert, Jr. created the world wide content, branding, and marketing strategy including concept-ing and directing the celebrity campaign for LifeWorks which won the Golden Pencil award. He produced, co-directed and starred in the feature film, "Hip, Edgy, Sexy, Cool" a mockumentary, revolving around two casting directors and their wild ride through the trenches of commercial casting. The film is based on his previous years as a casting director at Monkey Brothers Casting, and Robert Martin Casting, where his notable credits include award-winning commercials for Kinka Usher, Baker Smith, Rocky Morton and Christopher Guest. "H, E,S, C" features over two hundred distinguished cameos. His short film, Nice Guys Finish Last (2001) which he wrote and directed won the "The Standin' on the Corner" Award for Best Narrative short at The Winslow Film Festival, stars Jane Lynch, Christopher Kennedy Masterson and Milo Ventimiglia. It revolves around Billy, our stereotypical teenager and his slew of problems concerning females. It's a twisty little tale of teen angst and is in pre-production for the feature film version. His critically acclaimed CD, "The Concept of Acting," is in back order, which includes all the "inside secrets" to the biz. As ceo of Robert Jr, Inc., his proudest achievement is Bizodex.com, the World's Watercooler!
