Excellent, prolific and versatile character actor Robert DoQui was born in 1934 in Stillwater, Oklahoma. He attended Langston University on a music scholarship and was a member of the popular singing group, "The Langstonaires". Following a four-year stint in the U.S. Air Force, DoQui went to New York to pursue a career in show business. He began appearing in films and TV shows in the mid 60s and soon amassed a long, diverse and impressive list of credits. DoQui frequently portrayed tough, hard-nosed, say-it-like-you-see-it characters with a great deal of fiery brio and steely conviction. Arguably best-known as the huffy, no-nonsense "Sergeant Warren Reed" in all three Robocop films, DoQui's other noteworthy film roles include the flamboyant pimp, "King George", in Jack Hill's terrifically trashy blaxploitation classic Coffy, la panthère noire de Harlem (1973), a former slave in the charming Disney outing Le trésor de Matacumba (1976), a fanatical religious cult member in the outrageously sleazy Guyana : La Secte de l'enfer (1979) and a hot-tempered short order cook in Appel d'urgence (1988). Moreover, DoQui appeared in three movies for acclaimed director Robert Altman: Nashville (1975), Buffalo Bill et les Indiens (1976) and Short Cuts - Les Américains (1993). He supplied the voice of "Pablo Robertson" on the animated Harlem Globe Trotters (1970) TV series.Among the many television programs DoQui has done guest spots on are New York Police Blues (1993), as a Klingon on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993), Un drôle de shérif (1992), Starman (1986), Webster (1983), L'homme qui tombe à pic (1981), Punky Brewster (1984), Capitaine Furillo (1981), The Jeffersons (1975), Maude (1972), Les rues de San Francisco (1972), Sanford and Son (1972) Dossiers brûlants (1974) La nouvelle équipe (1968), Le fugitif (1963), Des agents très spéciaux (1964), Jeannie de mes rêves (1965) and Au-delà du réel (1963).In addition to his substantial acting credits, DoQui served ten years on the board of directors of the Screen Actors Guild, during which time he encouraged both women and minority groups to participate more in the media.
