Sometimes credited as Robert “Bonecrusher” Mukes, Mukes played professional basketball in Europe until age 30, then trained for pro-wrestling. His time in that career field was cut short due to injuries.
The 6′ 10″ actor is best known for his role as Rufus “R.J.” Firefly, Jr. in House of 1000 Corpses— a role he did not reprise in the sequel Devil’s Rejects. Mukes is also known for his role as eskimo bounty hunter Abumchuck in the TV series Weeds and his recent work on HBO’s TV series, Westworld.
Mukes currently attends fan conventions, world-wide, as a celebrity guest, such as San Diego Comic Con, Monster-Mania Con, Scare-a-Con, Scarefest, Days of the Dead, and Rock & Shock.
