Wiki Biography: Jeff Kober, a native of Billings, Montana, was born on December 18, 1953. Not satisfied with being a rancher, Kober relocated to the L.A. area in his twenties with the desire to become an actor. His first appearance on the small screen was a non-billed role in the 1980s series "V" (1984). Kober went on to supporting roles in the highly acclaimed Vietnamese War drama "China Beach" (1988) and the short-lived, but now-cult horror series "Kindred: The Embraced" (1996). Following these series, Kober has guested on some of the most popular television series of the day. They include "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (1999), "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" (2000), "ER" (1994), "24" (2001), "The Closer" (2005) and "Criminal Minds" (2005). Kober's big screen career began with the film Out of Bounds (1986), in which he played the first of his signature nefarious characters - "Roy Gaddis", a small-time drug dealer with murderous inclinations. This role led to more film opportunities in The First Power (1990), Tank Girl (1995) (a comedic turn), Defining Maggie (2002), World Without Waves (2004), and the remake of The Hills Have Eyes II (2007), among others. Never one to balk at taking a chance in the acting field, Kober has also appeared in several short independent films - the Academy Award-winning Session Man (1991) (TV) and, most recently, Lucid (2006/I), another film that has garnered a number of awards at independent film festivals across the country. He has done extensive stage work, most prominently, as "the father" in Jenny Sullivan's autobiographical work "J For J" and "Defying Gravity". Being a creature of diverse talents, Kober is also a noted artist (he was responsible for the paintings attributed to his character "Daedalus" on "Kindred: The Embraced" (1996) and is the c/o author of "Art That Pays: The Emerging Artist's Guide to Making a Living" along with Adele Slaughter. On the personal front, Kober is twice divorced (Rhonda Talbot, Kelly Cutrone) and the father of one son. He has, at present, finished work on The Hills Have Eyes II (2007) (set for release in March 2007)-in the role of "Col. Lincoln Redding". Kober's next film, Multiple (2008), is in post-production.
