Die Hard Wiki

Captain "Cappy" Roberts was John McClane's former superior, apparently replaced by Walter Cobb

Character Biography[]

He was only mentioned in the first film, having retired from the NYPD and moved to Pomona, California. John was to bunk with him during his stay in California. But John's wife corrected him when he said "Ramona".

Roberts may have noted McClane's problem with authority, as mentioned to Tony.


  • In real life, Roberts would be Commissioner of the NYPD, as seen in official Police Ranks.
