Topix Editorial Team

Robert DeSalvo, Senior Writer

Before joining Topix, Robert was senior editor at Playboy, where he oversaw the magazine's movie coverage. He has interviewed dozens of actors, directors, authors, musicians and other celebrities during his journalism career, including Brian De Palma, Nicolas Cage, Dustin Hoffman, Sigourney Weaver, Julianne Moore, Bryan Cranston, Anne Rice and many more. In addition to Playboy, Robert's writing has been featured in Movieline and on, and Fandango.

Robert is originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He currently lives in West Hollywood, California, where he is close to the entertainment industry he has written about for years. His most-viewed article on Topix to date has been a quiz on the world's most iconic women.

Robert's favorite movie--and religion--is Blade Runner. He is eagerly waiting to see if Los Angeles will look Blade Runner-esque in 2019.
