People don't know what they want most of the time until you show it to them.
~ Raymond Sellars

Raymond Sellars is the main antagonist of the 2014 film remake of RoboCop.

He is the corrupted CEO of OmniCorp and depicted as a cruel, yet merciless businessman who serves as the arch-rival of Alex Murphy; as Sellars' nefarious agenda had effectively staged the events of Murphy getting killed and becoming the crime-fighting police cyborg known as "Robocop".

He is portrayed by the Academy Award nominated actor Michael Keaton, who also portrayed Beetlejuice in beetlejuiceKen in Toy Story 3 and Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming.


Sellars serves as the CEO of OmniCorp, and he supervises the transformation of the injured Officer Alex J. Murphy into the crime-fighting cyborg RoboCop. Although he does not bear any genuine malice against RoboCop initially, he gradually sees him as less of a man and more of a product. He is eventually shot to death by Murphy on the rooftop of the OmniCorp headquarters in downtown Detroit during a climactic showdown.


Sellars was an intelligent and very savvy businessman. He was canny and sneaky in his approach to dealing with people and he was also shown to be extremely ruthless in dealing with anybody who opposed him. However, he was not malevolent at first. Initially Sellars was more of a typical corporate executive, simply wanting to sell his company's products to the American government but as he increasingly toyed with Murphy's free will to make him perform better, he lost more and more of his morality and eventually decided to murder him.
