Everybody Loves Raymond

Brad Garrett

Robert Barone

Between his basso-profundo voice and his hard-to-cast 6'8" frame, Brad Garrett made quite a career out of voiceover work in such films as Jetsons: The Movie, Casper, A Bug's Life, The Country Bears, Finding Nemo, Garfield, Night at the Museum and Ratatouille. On TV, he voiced Hulk Hogan in the animated Rock 'n Wrestling, as well as classic kids' fare such as Transfomers, Where's Waldo?, Batman, Superman, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, House of Mouse and Timon and Pumbaa. His live-action film credits include Music and Lyrics, Sweet and Lowdown, Stuart Little 2 and The Pacifier.

As a stand-up comic, he was a big winner on the original Star Search. He spent six weeks as a UCLA student before dropping out and appearing on The Tonight Show, where he told a joke that got him banned. He went on to headline in Vegas along with the likes of Frank Sinatra, David Copperfield, Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson, Sammy Davis, Jr., the Beach Boys and Julio Iglesias.

In 2002, he portrayed legendary comedian Jackie Gleason in the TV movie Gleason, which earned him an Emmy nomination and Screen Actors Guild Award nod. For his role of Robert Barone on Everybody Loves Raymond, he received five Emmy nominations and seven SAG Award nominations. He won the Emmy in 2002 and 2003, the same year that he and the rest of the Raymond cast won the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. When Raymond was nearing its end, there was talk of a Robert Barone spin-off, but that never happened. Instead, a year later, Garrett began his stint as long-married Eddie Stark in the FOX sitcom 'til Death.

He proposed to his now ex-wife on the set of Everybody Loves Raymond, and together they have two sons.

Character Bio

Considered the handsome brother, Robert is a policeman who lives with his and Ray's parents. Eventually, he moves out, moves back in, then moves out again and marries his long-suffering girlfriend Amy MacDougall.

Divorced from the belittling Joanne, Robert has a very checkered dating track record. With his mother often asking him if he's "a gay" (he's not), he dates a much younger girl lying about her age, the beautiful but immature Italian goddess Stefania and a woman who could be "the one" - if she didn't have a collection of frogs. His wedding to Amy is not without incident, as her family may be as insane as his own.

He is 6'8" and often the butt of jokes made by his father and brother. He moves his way up the ranks in the police department, despite a sidetrack when a bull gores him (and it's broadcast on TV). His hobbies include ventriloquism and dancing. Conceived out of wedlock, Robert has a habit of touching his food to his chin before he eats it - the origin of which has to do with his preferred younger brother, of course.
