Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A character actor who made a career out of guest starring on successful television series for five decades, Robert Pine's biggest claim to fame was playing the sarcastic and often exasperated commander of two hard-to-control motorcycle cops on the wildly popular series, "CHiPs" (NBC, 1977-1983). For six seasons, Pine played Sergeant Getraer, an officer with the California Highway Patrol who constantly dealt with the adventurous shenanigans of underlings Frank "Ponch" Poncherello and Jon Baker.

He landed occasional feature roles with "Independence Day" (1996), "But I'm a Cheerleader" (2000), and "Red Eye" (2005), though his career...

He landed occasional feature roles with "Independence Day" (1996), "But I'm a Cheerleader" (2000), and "Red Eye" (2005), though his career paled in comparison to son Chris Pine, who rose to stardom as Captain Kirk in the reboot of "Star Trek" (2009). Still, Pine maintained a busy schedule as a capable supporting actor who appeared in many big and small screen projects.
