Ronny grew up in Portales, New Mexico, and attended Eastern New Mexico University and graduated with a degree in Speech Correction and Theatre in 1963.

Cox made his debut in the 1972 film “Deliverance”, which received critical acclaim, playing alongside Burt Reynolds and child actor Billy Redden. After the film, he had more opportunities which started to build his net worth. He starred in the short-lived series “Apple’s Way” before making an appearance in the television movie “Our Town”. In 1977, he made a guest appearance in the show “Quinn Martin’s Tales of the Unexpected”, and later appeared in the low budget film “Courage”.

During the final season of the medical drama “St. Elsewhere”, Ronny appeared as Dr. John Gideon. In 1987, he was then given a villain’s role in the film “RoboCop”, after which he co-starred in the short lived “Cop Rock”, before getting another villain’s role in “Total Recall”. He then made an appearance in a two part episode of “Star Trek: The Next Generation”, before in 1997 portraying Jack Neil in the film “Murder at 1600”, before being cast in the television movie “Perfect Murder, Perfect Town” in which he played John Ramsey. His next notable project would be “Beverly Hills Cop” and he reprised his role in the sequel “Beverly Hills Cop II”. His net worth continued to increase.

Cox was then cast in the television series “The Starter Wife”, before venturing into animation work. He voiced Doc in “Invasion America” and later voiced Senator McMillan in Todd McFarlane’s “Spawn”. Afterwards, he played the father of Bree Van de Kamp in “Desperate Housewives”, then in 2011 guest starring in “Mr. Sunshine” before appearing in an episode of “Dexter”. One of his latest projects was a guest appearance in “Diagnosis Murder” during its third season.

Aside from acting, Ronny also does music work. He reportedly turns down a lot of acting offers to play music at festivals. He plays with a band of virtuoso musicians and he does a musical tour to Ireland every year.

For his personal life, it is known that Cox married Mary in 1960; they met while in high school and later had two children. However, she passed away in 2006, according to Cox 50 years to the day after their first date.

1Frequently plays antagonistic military or government officials who have many disagreements with the protagonist
2Frequently plays strong-willed, confrontational authority figures
1The fun for me is playing characters -- not that I would ever turn down superstardom. But I would only use stardom as a way to get access to all the really great roles. I want to play everything.
2I'm not a well-trained actor in the classical sense but what I think I have going for me is a sense of honesty about my work.
3I don't have much respect for what I call the 'technical' actors, who work out every little nuance of how they're going to say the words. To me, that's acting in a vacuum. It seems to me to be a tremendous act of hubris to decide ahead of time how you're going to react to the way I say something. I love playing characters. I'm not interested in playing myself, although I'm the conduit for that character.
4"The fun for me is still acting, though I like doing everything. I'm not really interested in being a superstar. I have a really wonderful, secure private life. The thing about becoming a 'star' is that you get offered the really good roles and that's what I want. I found out a long time ago that the hardest thing about playing Hamlet is being asked to do it. Luckily for me, now, I'm being asked." (from a 1988 interview)
1Is also a folk singer.
2Fronted a rock 'n' roll band called Ron's Rockouts with two of his brothers while attending college. He not only sung most of the lead vocals, but also played rhythm guitar and blues harp in the band.
3Has appeared in RoboCop (1987) alongside fellow Star Trek veterans Peter Weller, Kurtwood Smith and Miguel Ferrer.
4Graduated from Eastern New Mexico University in 1963 with a double major in theater and speech correction.
5Has been known to enjoy a good game of bridge.
6Met his wife, Mary Cox, in high school when he was 14.
7When he guest-starred as Captain Edward Jellico in an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) entitled "Chain of Command: Parts 1 and 2" (episode # 6.11) 19 December 1992, he had the distinction of being the only other actor besides Patrick Stewart and Jonathan Frakes in "The Best of Both Worlds: Part 2" to do a "Captain's Log" entry on the entire run of the series.
8Has played two fictional Presidents of the United States: President Tom Kimball in Captain America (1990) and President Jack Neil in Murder at 1600 (1997). His character Senator/Vice President Robert Kinsey in Stargate SG-1 (1997) became President in several episodes, however, these were "alternate universe/alternative timeline" scenarios. In the episode "2010" (episode #4.16), we see Robert Kinsey as the President, in the episode "Moebius (Part 1)" (episode #8.19) he is referred to as the President.
9Remembered best as the moral-minded and ill-fated Drew Ballinger who instigates the legendary "Dueling Banjos" sequence with a mountain boy in Deliverance (1972), Cox is a real-life singer-songwriter and guitarist as well as master storyteller. He and his band do about 80 shows a year at folk festivals, small theatres and other folk venues.
