RB on VC[01/17/00] *** Richard guests on NBC's "Veronica's Closet" *** -- Tuesday at 9:30pm ET/PT, airing Jan 18th. Richard guests in the episode "Veronica's Tattoed Man," playing Veronica's (Kirstie Alley) new beau Mark, who coincidentally also dated Veronica's coworker Olive (Kathy Najimy). Veronica is not at all pleased to discover that her new man has a large tattoo of Olive's face -- complete with her name -- on his chest. (Check your local listings for channel and time).

Remember to visit NBC's website and drop them a thankyou e-mail for chosing Richard for the role. The NBC website is at and their feedback e-mail address is To learn more about the show, take a look at the page for Veronica's Closet.

[01/07/00] *** Look for Richard on NBC's "Providence" later on this season ***-- Friday nights at 8pm ET/PT Richard is working on an episode of NBC's popular drama "Providence" which will most likely air later this season. Information on his character and the episode storyline will be posted as it becomes available.

[01/07/00] *** Richard guests on Nickelodeon's animated "Wild Thornberrys" *** -- weeknights at 8pm ET/PT. Richard voices an evil poacher on an episode of the half-hour animated show. Due to production lead-times on animated programs, Richard's episode will probably not air until Fall. The show revolves around a "Dr. Doolittle"-like young girl, 12-year-old Eliza Thornberry, and her rather eccentric animal documentary-producing family. Richard's role might become a recurring character.
