Born in Los Angeles, California and raised in New York, Cromwell studied engineering at the Carnegie Institute of Technology (now Carnegie Mellon University). Appropriately, he has played the part of a warp drive inventor (Star Trek) and a visionary cyberneticist (I, Robot, a film adaptation of Isaac Asimov's Robot Series). He began his acting career on television in 1974, but had some difficulty breaking into feature films because of his height. At a staggering 6'7" (200 cm), many filmmakers were afraid to give him any roles as he would tower over their stars. This soon changed, however. Cromwell was married to actress Julie Cobb, who played Yeoman Leslie Thompson in the Star Trek: The Original Series second season episode "By Any Other Name". Cromwell's step-daughter, Rosemary Morgan, is also a Trek alumna, having played Piri in the Star Trek: Voyager third season episode "The Chute".
Cromwell has become a highly recognizable figure outside of Star Trek. He earned an Academy Award nomination for his performance as Farmer Hoggett in the 1995 family film Babe, a role which he reprised in the 1998 sequel, Babe: Pig in the City. He also acquired praise for playing a crooked police captain in the highly acclaimed 1997 neo-noir thriller L.A. Confidential. Another cast member was one-time TNG guest actor Matt McCoy, whom Cromwell had worked with twice before in two television projects and would work with again on the short-lived TV series Citizen Baines in 2001. Other cast members in L.A. Confidential were Bob Clendenin, Steve Rankin, Symba Smith, Brenda Bakke, John Mahon and Colin Mitchell as well as stuntmen Steven Lambert, Jim Metzler, Don Pulford and Allan Graf. Cromwell would star as future disgraced United States Senator Charles Keating in the 1996 biopic The People vs. Larry Flynt costarring fellow TNG guest star Vincent Schiavelli.
As extensive as his film credits are, his television credits are even more so. In 1976, Cromwell co-starred with fellow Star Trek actors George Murdock, Andrew Robinson, William Windom, and Anthony Zerbe on the mini-series Once an Eagle. Ten years later, Cromwell was among the cast of the mini-series Dream West. Among the actors in this project were Cromwell's Star Trek: First Contact co-stars Jonathan Frakes and Alice Krige, as well as F. Murray Abraham, Michael Ensign, the aforementioned Ma...
Cromwell is known for his work with animal rights causes and for fighting climate change. Recently Cromwell was sentenced to spend a week in the Orange County jail for blocking access to a nuclear power plant in Wawayanda, New York.
