Before acting, Bobby Hosea played defensive back at UCLA, and was named "Most Inspirational Player" in his senior year. He turned pro, and played for three years in the Canadian Football and U.S. Football Leagues. "I retired at 28 because I had just been beaten up enough. Playing defensive back was constant pressure and as the injuries started to mount up, I wondered what's next. It was time for me to go."
Bobby Hosea began his television acting career in 1984, appearing in Her Life as a Man as a football player. He appeared in many 1980s television shows, from Benson to Perfect Strangers to 21 Jump Street. In 1995, Bobby portrayed O. J. Simpson in The O. J. Simpson Story. In fantasy circles he is also known for his short role as Xena's lover "Marcus" in Xena: Warrior Princess.
Bobby has become a character actor as of late in roles as police officers and doctors in such shows as CSI, Cold Case, and Lincoln Heights.
