Morrow attended Miami Sunset High School, but dropped out during his senior year to fully pursue a career in acting. He started studying and struggled for almost a decade trying to find a breakthrough role – he made several stage appearances and co-founded the theater company Naked Angels in 1986. During this period he had to work various jobs, including delivering balloons and bartending. In 1990, he became part of the award winning television show “Northern Exposure” as the lead character. He stayed with the show until 1995 when he decided to pursue big screen roles.
Morrow became part of the film “Quiz Show” in 1994, which would earn him critical acclaim playing the congressional investigator Dick Goodwin who was out to uncover information about a1950s game show scandal. The opportunities presented to him would help elevate his net worth significantly, as he then played the sports agent brother of Albert Brooks’ character in “Mother”. He was considered for the film “The Island of Dr. Moreau”, but then in 2000 he directed and starred in the film “Maze” which is about an artist with Tourette syndrome; the independent film won the AFI Festival New Directions Award and was an honorable mention at the San Jose Film Festival. He would then found the production company Bits and Pieces. He continued his directorial work over the next few years, mostly directing episodes of shows such as “Joan of Arcadia” and “Oz”, but building his net worth.
Two years later, Rob became part of the series “Street Time” in which he played Kevin Hunter, and he also appeared in the television movie “Custody” before appearing in “The Bucket List” as the doctor to Jack Nicholson. In 2005, he was cast in the series “Numb3rs”, starring alongside Judd Hirsch and David Krumholtz, staying with the show for five years, and then in 2010 signing with another series – “The Whole Truth”. The show was short lived even although Rob filmed 13 episodes. One of his latest projects is “Atlas Shrugged Part III”. All of these projects have helped in raising his net worth.
For his personal life, it is known that Rob has been married to actress Debbon Ayer since 1998, and they have a daughter. He also mentioned that he enjoys skiing. Morrow also does a bit of charity work. He is a part of the Board of Directors of project ALS, research into the neuro-degenerative disease.

It’s a good time to be making movies, despite the cynicism people have about Hollywood.
These are classic, perennial ideals we are dealing with.
College on for sure… I’m scared to say it cause it sounds like a family movie, but if my kid was 7, 8, 9 I would take her to this quickly and gladly!
I was a Sedgewick without the smarts. It infused its way into me and I feel like it formed my character in a big way because of what I was exposed to.
I’d like to think that the notion of inspiration will transcend cultural things that are going on. There’s something classic about this movie that I’m hoping reaches kids.
I’m into the idea of responsibility and edification and these things have found me and I have found them. I wanted to be in the movie and I made it known to Mike.
I learned a lot about morality from fiction, from movies.
If it awakens in us as a whole how important that is – the theme of how conquest and ambition are meaningless without contribution – I think then as a society we’re in better shape. I hope people are inspired to be the best.
I consider myself a student of Hollywood.
I love the idea of rectitude.
I see lots of cycles, for sure. There’s the whole post-Star Wars era, but I don’t think it’s the whole story.
He is of Russian Jewish descent.
He was cast as Douglas in The Island of Dr Moreau (1996) but dropped out just before filming and was replaced by David Thewlis.
Morrow and his wife show an affinity for “pun” names. Her name, Debbon Ayer, is a homophone for the word debonair, which means “suave” and “snazzy” or “carefree.” Their daughter’s name, when spoken without her middle name, is a homophone for the word tomorrow.
He is an avid skier, and he skies regularly with his close friend Fisher Stevens.
He has a production company named Bits and Pieces Pictures Co., which has produced films, including Maze (2000).
Son of Murray Morrow, an industrial lighting manufacturer, and Diane Morrow, a dental hygienist. Rob’s parents divorced when he was 9.
