He had been working on Peter Berg’s new film Deepwater Horizon in New Orleans; when he didn’t show up for work on July 28, a fellow stuntman went to his hotel room and found Robinson’s body.
The Orleans Parish Coroner’s Office hasn’t released a cause of death pending toxicology results.

His prolific career, which spanned nearly 25 years, included stunts on such films as Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Lone Ranger, Fast & Furious, X-Men: The Last Stand and Steven Spielberg’s War Of The Worlds and The Lost World: Jurassic Park.
He was also a stunt rigger on numerous films, including Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Catwoman and Hollywood Homicide.
