Auberjonois was born in New York City. His father, Swiss-born Fernand Auberjonois (1910–2004), was a Cold War-era foreign correspondent and Pulitzer Prize-nominated writer. His grandfather, also named René Auberjonois, was a French Swiss post-Impressionist painter. His mother was Princess Laure Louise Napoléone Eugénie Caroline Murat (1913–1986), a great-great granddaughter of Joachim Murat, King of Naples, and his wife Caroline Bonaparte, sister of the Emperor Napoléon.
He has a sister and a brother and also two half-sisters from his mother's first marriage. His family moved to Paris after World War II, where at an early age he decided to become an actor.
Auberjonois married Judith Mihalyi on October 19, 1963. They have two children, Tessa and Remy, both of whom are also actors.
After college, Auberjonois worked with several different theater companies, beginning at the prestigious Arena Stage in Washington, D.C. He later traveled between Los Angeles and New York working in numerous theater productions. Auberjonois helped found the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco, the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, and the Brooklyn Academy of Music Repertory Company in New York. He was a member of the Peninsula Players summer theater program during the 1962 season.
Other Broadway appearances include Malvolio in the 1972 film Twelfth Night; Scapin in the 1973 film Tricks; Mr. Samsa in Metamorphosis opposite Mikhail Baryshnikov in 1989; Professor Abronsius in Dance of the Vampires, Michael Crawford's unsuccessful rewrite of Tanz der Vampire; and Jethro Crouch in the 2004 show Sly Fox, for which he was nominated for an Outer Critics Circle Award. Auberjonois has also appeared many times at the Mark Taper Forum, notably as Stanislavski in Chekhov in Yalta. As a member of the Second Drama Quartet, Auberjonois toured with Ed Asner, Dianne Wiest, and Harris Yulin. He also appeared in the Tom Stoppard and Andre Previn work Every Good Boy Deserves Favor at the Kennedy Center.
Auberjonois is a regular on three TV shows in three different genres: Benson, a situation comedy; the science fiction series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine; and the legal drama Boston Legal. He has also been a guest star on many different television series, including Hogan's Heroes, Charlie's Angels, The Jeffersons, Night Gallery, Murder, She Wrote, Frasier, Chicago Hope, Star Trek: Enterprise, Warehouse 13, The Practice, for which he received an Emmy nomination, Saving Grace, and It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia.
