He graduated from the New York University Tisch School of the Arts in 1987 and honed his acting skills at the prestigious Circle in the Square and Playwright's Horizons acting studios in New York while attending NYU. His impressive list of theatrical credits includes Othello, Coriolanus, Hamlet, Julius Caesar, Romeo and Juliet, and numerous others.
In his first feature film role, Cobb portrayed the bodyguard of a Mafioso in the independent film Astonished. He also won the starring role in the independent feature Eyes Beyond Seeing.
Cobb's love for acting stems from his devotion to the works of William Shakespeare. He served for two years as a judge of the National Shakespeare Competition. Cobb taught for six years at Youth Theatre Interactions, an after school performing arts program in Yonkers, New York that introduces children to the arts. He also spent several years at Playwright's Theatre of New Jersey, where he taught playwriting, directed and performed in the plays of youthful offenders in the New Jersey correctional system.
