Eric Roberts was born in Biloxi, Mississippi, and his younger sibling is Julia Roberts. He began his career on the soap opera “Another World” in 1977, and made his film debut – garnering a Golden Globe nomination – with “King of the Gypsies” (1978). He was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar in 1985 for “Runaway Train,’ and starred on Broadway in 1987 in “Burn This!” He is known for his intensity… his catchphrase is “Charlie, they took my thumbs!” from “The Pope of Greenwich Village.”
