RoboCop is a character in a series of films of the same name played by UNT alumnus Peter Weller. Weller's family lived in Germany for several years before eventually moving to Texas, where he attended Alamo Heights High School in San Antonio. While enrolled at North Texas State University (now the University of North Texas), he played trumpet in one of the campus bands. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre in 1969, and began his acting career after graduating from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

He is awesome, and many students' favorite UNT alumnus as evidenced by the facebook group Robocop is My Favorite Alumnus which, currently, has 56 active members.

At the Whataburger on University, there used to be a poster for Robocop 2, which is by far and away the best sequel to Robocop ever made.
