Robert Charles Joseph Henry Mills III (known as Bobby). Is one of the male auditionists who gets throught the primary, secondary and main cut. He is best friends with Sheila Bryant. Bobby was played by Thomas J. Walsh


According to Bobby, he grew up in Buffalo, NY, a middle-upper/upper-middle stage production, family style home near Buffalo, New York. However, he couldn't remember the name of the town since he blocked it out. His mother was a cards player and cheated a lot. His father used to be a big sports hero and was an alcoholic. Bobby went to a school that he refers to as “Jock City”. At the school, Bobby wasn't good at sports. His father told his friends that Bobby had polio to avoid embarrassment, and Bobby would limp for him on Father’s Day. Bobby enjoyed breaking into people's houses and rearranging their furniture. He used to host “bizarre” musicals in his garage. According to Bobby, when he was young he was a pyromaniac and set fire to his brother.
