Rob Steinberg interview: from ‘Die Hard 2′ to ’12 Years A Slave’
Actor Rob Steinberg is proud of the Oscar winning film 12 Years a Slave and his role on the project. Rob spoke to Dispatch Radio in an exclusive interview about playing the Saratoga store-owner and the powerful message of the film.
Rob tapped into his years working in the music industry to step into the role of Mark Reynolds, a record company head, in Grace Unplugged. He contrasted the experience of working on a faith-based film with the bigger budget films from Hollywood.
In sharp contrast, Rob also landed a funny role as Gandalf in the spoof The Starving Games. He confessed that few recognize him because of the beard and makeup.
Steinberg counted years of experience, from his breakout in Die Hard 2 to a series of films and roles alongside big names such as Denzel Washington, Jim Carey and Jennifer Jason Leigh. He shares some fond memories and a great story about George Clooney which is a tribute to the reputation and legacy of the Gravity star.
The New Orleans native also starred in Treme where David Simon and Eric OVermyer “brings the culture and music to life” and “highlights the food and music.”
After overcoming the near-fatal car accident in 1986 Steinberg pursued a dream, pronouncing he was “done with the music business” and speaks openly about life’s journey and what matters now.
