got interested in him after watching him in a 2-part episode of Barnaby Jones last nite on Decades. reading his IMDb bio it says he bore a close resemblance to Kevin McCarthy. that is BS. webber didn't look anything like McCarthy. I sometimes would confuse him with ed nelson.

He didn't look like Ed Nelson either. He was taller and more in shape than Nelson and McCarthy. Plus he had a very distinctive voice.

He was in several episodes of Cannon and for awhile, he turned up in nearly every season of The Rockford Files (always playing a different character, and usually a villain). I think he and Garner lived near each other and were good friends off-screen.

yeah, webber certainly didn't mind playing villains.

He was very effective in those roles. He had a high class but roguish charm, which worked perfectly.

He was in a terrific episode of ‘The Rockford Files’  from 1976 as a phony psychic. He and James Gardner had great chemistry together. 

He also did two episodes of Garner's next series, Bret Maverick in 1982.

He was memorable opposite Joanne Woodward in "The Stripper".

I see the title was changed to the more exploitive The Stripper! (which must've been a let down to the menfolk who went to see it as that's not what the storyline was about). It bombed anyway.

ROBERT WEBBER and KEVIN McCARTHY???

The only other person I've seen that resembles McCarthy was my 7th grade English teacher!  :D

Actually Sepia, I've always thought there was some resemblance between Kevin McCarthy and Ricky Nelson...

See what I mean?...
