Robert Ito was born on July 2, 1931 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. He is an actor, known for The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (1984), Rollerball (1975) and Quincy M.E. (1976).


Canadian-born actor of Japanese descent, Robert Ito was, for many years, a dancer with the National Ballet of Canada before turning to acting in the mid-1960s. Still a busy performer today (2003), he is probably best known for his seven-year stint as "Sam Fujiyama" on the popular TV series Quincy M.E. (1976), opposite Jack Klugman's title character.
