Biography by Hal Erickson

The son of actors Robert Walker and Jennifer Jones, Robert Walker Jr. began training for his own show business career at the Actors' Studio in the early '60s. "I would like to develop as an actor in obscurity," Walker commented in reference to his parents' fame, but the young actor's striking resemblance to his father (who died in 1951) made it virtually impossible for the two Robert Walkers to be separated in the minds of the public. The younger Walker worked steadily on television and stage, and co-starred in films of varying quality from 1963 to 1984. Robert Walker Jr. is best remembered for valiantly stepping into the shoes of Jack Lemmon when he was cast in the title role in the Mister Roberts sequel Ensign Pulver (1964).
