Eric Roberts

81Eric Roberts has been one of Hollywood’s edgier, more intriguing characters for decades.

After appearing in such daytime soaps as “Another World” (1964) and “How to Survive a Marriage” (1974), Eric turned to major films. Eric appeared in such films as King of the Gypsies, Raggedy Man, Star 80, The Pope of Greenwich Village, Nobody’s Fool, and earned an Academy Award nomination as a young prison escapee in Runaway Train.

A risky, no-holds-barred actor, Eric appeared in the action western Blood Red, which took three years to release and is now remembered for being the only film Eric and superstar sister Julia Roberts appeared in together.

Other film credits include Rude Awakening, Final Analysis and The Dark Knight, part of the “Batman” series with Christian Bale and the late Heath Ledger.

Eric now brings his skills to Spotlight TV News.
