Roberto Lombardi was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (USA) and began his career at an early age, appearing on the Gene London Show at age 7, then began music lessons (drums) and showed a natural ability for music. He quickly moved on to other instruments (bass) in order to learn to not only play, but write his own songs, later taking voice lessons to handle lead vocals.
At age 16, an interest in acting resurfaced. He studied acting in high school and college, then found theater roles both in school and regionally, eventually landing extra / featured roles in several major motion pictures.
At this point music became the focus. He wrote, recorded and toured nationally with several bands, most notably April Fool, "The End", "The Facts", The Rage and Road Trip learning to play both keyboards and guitar in the process.
In 2004, Lombardi again became focused on acting, signed with several agencies and began modeling while taking additional acting classes. Since then he has appeared in many films, television shows and commercials in a variety of roles in films such as The Happening, Bazookas: The Movie, Masks, Stand Off, Perfect: Android Rising and The Cemetery, as well as the popular fan films Krueger: Another Tale from Elm Street, The Nightmare Ends on Halloween II (as the iconic Freddy Krueger), Escape from New Jersey and Mr. J . He also starred in the ensemble tv series Brotherhood of Silver, The Underground Kings and Phantom Faye.

He is attached with Actor and Producer credit for the upcoming Extinction and directed the short film Masks: Facade. He has also been credited for Casting, Location Scout and Script Supervisor as well as doing Special FX Makeup and contributing music to Film Soundtracks.
His production company 'RTL Productions' focuses on the development, publicity and production of new film projects such as Just Like Me which he produced as well as acted in. The company also releases Lombardi's past and future music projects and licenses music for film soundtracks. Roberto Lombardi also wrote the screenplay for the supernatural crime drama Voosha Day.
