Robert F. Hoy is equally at home as a stuntman and as an actor. He appeared as Joe Butler on the acclaimed TV Western, The High Chaparral. He has stunt-doubled for Charles Bronson, Tony Curtis, Robert Forrester, Ross Martin, Tyrone Power, David Jansen, Telly Savalas, Charles McGraw, Jay Silverheels and Abby Lane. His acting roles in many films include: Bite the Bullet, The Outlaw Josey Wales, The Lone Ranger, Gambler II, Nevada Smith, Bronco Billy, The Enforcer, The Great Race, and TV shows such as Wanted Dead or Alive, Walker Texas Ranger, JAG, Dallas (recurring role), The Wild Wild West, Magnum P.I. (five episodes), The Young Riders, and Zorro. He was the 2nd Unit Director and Stunt Coordinator in Spain on the TV series Zorro and on the pilot of The Three Musketeers.

In his work as a stuntman, Bob specializes in horse work, although he has also been called upon to double in fight scenes, do car work and handle high falls. The films in which lead actors and others were doubled for stunts are too numerous to mention but include: Operation Petticoat, The Defiant Ones, Spartacus, Tobruk, They Call Me Bruce, Saskatchewan, River of No Return, To Hell and Back, Drumbeat, Wings of the Hawk, and Revenge of the Creature From the Black Lagoon.

With stunt credits on more than 30 television series and twice that many features, there is no doubt that Bob has earned his lifetime membership in the Stuntmen's Association, of which he is a founding member. He is also a member of the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Sciences, Directors Guild of America, AFTRA, and the Screen Actors Guild.
