ST -So back in 2004, you appeared in a memorable scene in “Along came Polly, with Ben Stiller and Phillip Seymore Hoffman.

Phillip Seymore Hoffman called you a Satchquatch; in the movie, did that bother you?

Robb- Are you kidding me?  He was great, he stole the movie in my opinion. He was terrific. I have nothing but great things to say about him.

ST-Who won the basketball game in real life?

Robb- Ha ha ha ha ha ha….we had to dumb down our skills on the court.

ST- Few years after that,  we were in a conversation and I asked you, ” So if you could play any role, from any movie,  what would it be ” … Remember that?

Robb-  Yes, and I said, Howard Cosell. That has always been a dream role of mine. Years back, I looked into obtaining the movie rights to his life story.

ST- Why Howard Cosell?

Robb – I have been a longtime admirer of Howard Cosell. His charisma, what he did for Muhamed Ali and sports in general. Very smart man.

ST-So, you had put alot of effort into making it happen before you got the call about this movie, Hands of Stone. Did you know who would be in it, before you auditioned?

Robb- No. It was a long ordeal before I got the audition, but once I was told I had the part, and then told I would have many scenes in the movie with Robert De Niro,  who is my favorite actor… It was quite a emotional shock.

ST – We are all excited about the release of this movie “Hands of Stone” the bio pic of Roberto Duran. What else is next?

Robb – It’s exciting to be having so many auditions right now.  I can’t say alot other than I’m in talks with Warner Bros for a upcoming  movie thats going to be a all star cast, and really funny and heartwarming Christmas story.

ST – We cant wait to see it.  Congratulations.. Thank you.
