Robert Lesser or Bobby Lesser (born October 22, 1942) is an American actor born in New York City and now living in Santa Barbara, California. His earliest work dates back to 1967 with "David Holzman's Diary", directed by Jim McBride. His latest movies include the Japanese film "Best Wishes for Tomorrow" and post-production "Painting in the Rain". Lesser has worked with Bruce Willis, Ed Harris, Alan Arkin, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Matthew Broderick, Dennis Quaid, Penelope Ann Miller, and Richard Mulligan.[1][2] He is well known in the Santa Barbara theater community.[3][4]

In 2011, The Hollywood Reporter published an open letter from Lesser to the Internet Movie Database after they repeatedly refused to correct his birthdate, which they had listed as May 28, 1938.[5] They have since corrected the date.
