Richard plays Uncle Frank in Touched by an Angel [13 Apr 09] *** Richard's "Touched by an Angel" airs on the Hallmark Channel *** -- Monday, April 13th at 11:00am ET/PT. Watch for Richard in episode 5.22, "Fighting the Good Fight," which originally aired in May 1999 on CBS.  The following episode synopsis was posted on the CBS website.

"Fighting the Good Fight"

Boxing Legend Muhammad Ali Guest Stars

A young boxer, Tim, and his brother live in desperate poverty in the inner city and are often mistreated by their self-centered uncle. When Tim's elder brothers becomes ill with a serious disease, Tim adopts an aggressive stance against the world in order to appear tough in the face of his brother's illness. He trains as a boxer to escape his troubles, but misuses his boxing skills by initiating a string of fights with local hoodlums that puts him on the road to ruin. Tess and Tim's idol, Muhammad Ali, are called upon to teach the confused young man that violence accomplishes nothing and that his energy should be spent strengthening familial bonds.

Guest Starring: Muhammad Ali guest stars as himself, a legendary boxer who comes to the aid of the youth who is misusing his boxing skills. Richard Burgi (The Sentinel) guest stars as the abusive uncle of the confused young boxer. Alexis Cruz returns in his recurring role as streetwise angel Rafael.

Richard plays Robert Galatin on Just Shoot Me [13 Apr 09]*** Richard's episode of "Just Shoot Me" airs on TBS in April *** -- Richard plays action hero -- and Mama's boy --  Robert "The Nomad" Galatin in "Mum's The Word," airing Tuesday, April 14th at 2:00pm ET.

Nina Van Horn (Wendie Malick) is returning to the Blush offices when she literally walks into famed action hero Robert Galatin, who is filming an episode of "The Nomad" on the sidewalk outside.

Each is immediately smitten with the other and Robert is soon eagerly pursuing Nina, appearing in the Blush offices with flowers in hand. Nina accepts Robert's invitation to an evening of romance, never expecting to be joined by Robert's diminutive, yet domineering, mother.

Natually, the two women are almost immediately at odds, and Nina tells Robert he must send the aged materfamilias packing if he expects to win her affections.  Robert quickly gives Mother her marching orders and turns his eye towards the approving Nina. Unfortunately, Mother's hold on her son is strong, and the sight of her shawl sends Robert reeling, becoming increasingly frantic and filled with doubt until he is bawling.

When an insistent tapping on the door proves to be Mother, Robert drops to his knees and wraps his arms around her, crying "Oh, Mother, Mother, never leave me, never-never!"

Nina takes one look at the shocking tableau and quits the scene in disgust while Mother Victorious smirks at her.

Richard returns to DH for slate of late-season episodes [13 Apr 09] *** Richard's Karl returns to "Desperate Housewives" for new arc of episodes, starting with Spring Sweeps *** -- Turns out even after the 5-year jump, Karl is still around to perplex and bedevil his ex! Richard returned on Sunday, March 22nd at 9:00pm ET in the eighteenth episode of Season Five, "A Spark. To Pierce the Dark" (episode 5.18), which filmed in February.

Karl's new storyline has several facets, the first of which is introduced in "A Spark. To Pierce the Dark." Susan gets an unexpected surprise when Karl enrolls his 5-year-old son Evan at the private school where Susan works as an art teacher. The surprise takes on more ominous tones when she discovers that young Evan is harboring dark and angry feelings which he is expressing through gruesome artwork. 

Karl eventually reveals that six weeks prior, his wife Marisa left him on the grounds that she was overwhelmed by parenthood. Obviously Evan is not handling the abandonment well, and Karl is afraid he's doing a poor job as a single parent. Rather than gloat in the "turnabout is fair play" aspect of Karl's situation, Susan finds she feels nothing but sorrow for his current dire straits.

While this turn of events would seem to indicate that a new romance between Susan and Karl might be in the cards, it turns out Karl is instead destined for a romance of sorts with Bree.  This unlikely match is born out of Bree's desperation to successfully divorce Orson while keeping control of her company; apparently she has decided that the best way to secure the services of the best lawyer she can find -- Karl Mayer -- is to woo and bed him.

Thus far, Richard is working on several late-season episodes leading up to the season finale, and may possibly be back on a more regular basis for the show's sixth season. The remaining new episodes of Season 5 will begin airing on April 19th, with Richard appearing in an as yet unascertained number of episodes.

(Thanks to Richard for the heads up and to TWOP for the episode details)


Richard plays Thomas Wellington in Harper's Island [13 Apr 09] *** Richard plays father of the bride in new CBS series "Harper's Island" *** -- Richard joined the cast of the 13-episode CBS midseason series "Harper's Island" in early August, playing the part of Thomas Wellington. Wellington is the patriarch of an Island blue-blood family and the father of bride-to-be Trish ("Supernatural's" Katie Cassidy), whose "destination wedding" brings the characters together on picturesque Harper's Island.

The show premiered at 10:00pm ET on Thursday, April 9th and will remain in the post-CSI berth throughout its 13-episode run, which ends on July 2nd.

Also featured in the cast are Jim Beaver ("Supernatural"), Elaine Cassidy, Christopher Gorham ("Ugly Betty"), Cameron Richardson ("Point Pleasant"), and Harry Hamlin ("L.A. Law," "Veronica Mars"). "Harper's Island" is created by Ari Schlossberg and executive produced by Jon Turteltaub, with Jeffrey Bell serving as showrunner.

CBS gave the following brief description of the show:

"The new drama, HARPER'S ISLAND, is a murder mystery that unfolds as friends and family attend week-long festivities at a destination wedding on a secluded and picturesque island off the coast of Seattle, infamous for a homicidal maniac's rampage seven years ago."

The show's IMDB listing: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1232320/

Richard plays The Shadow in Virgin UK web series Dr Hoo [13 Apr 09]*** Richard guests on Virgin Media's new online drama, "Dr. Hoo" *** -- Richard appears as the mysterious Shadow in the tenth episode, "The Shadow Speaks." Airing on the UK's Virgin 1, "Dr. Hoo" is described as a "year-round online only drama," and consists of an initial slate of ten  3-minute webisodes.  (Sadly, the show is only available to UK residents at present).

Virgin 1's website gives the following description of the show:

Welcome to the world of Mr. Hugh - or Dr. Hoo as he prefers to be known.

A manic depressive from Wales with a multi-personality disorder, he pronounces his surname Hoo. His real name is actually David Raymond Hugh.

Hoo is a strict vegetarian. He's ecologically conscious and his primary concern is to save himself and the world around him. However, time is running out fast.

His assistant is the sexy bombshell Zara. She's obsessed with the "other world" and is always seeking Hoo's help to find herself in the modern world.

The relationship between Dr. Hoo and Zara is complex to say the least - especially as Zara appears to live in Hoo's head. As their lives unfold inside a garage in Borehamwood on the outskirts of central London, we're left wondering whether they will ever get out.

Dr. Hoo is played by Ian Hart (Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone). Zara is played by Elaine Cassidy, one of the leads of Richard's new CBS series, "Harper's Island."  "Dr. Hoo" is created, written and directed by Stephen Lord, Cassidy's husband. (Lord also plays Agent Smart in "Dr. Hoo").

As his character is seen only in close-up on a video screen, it is likely Richard's scenes were shot while he was in Vancouver working with Cassidy on "Harper's Island" -- his scenes are shared with Lord's Agent Smart, who is initially filmed in front of a backdrop of the Vancouver skyline.

Catch Richard in Hostel Part 2 on The Movie Channel [13 Apr 09] *** Catch Richard Burgi on SHO Networks when  "Hostel: Part II" plays on The Movie Channel on April 27th*** -- Richard worked in Prague, Czech Republic in late October 2006 on the much-anticipated sequel to writer-director Eli Roth's horror blockbuster, "Hostel."  

Eli Roth gave MTV.com some teasing details on "Hostel: Part II," including an idea of how Richard's character Todd Rogers and his buddy Stuart (Roger Bart) McGenty fit into the overall story.  Said Roth:

"The film is also following two guys who go through this experience to kill somebody. And we know them really well, and they are very, very likeable and they're very normal. It seems like there's nothing psycho about them, except they are looking for some excitement in their life because they are bored. ... That's going to be a parallel story. We see it from the girl's perspective and we see it from the client's perspective. We inter-cut both stories until they all meet in this horrible place. So, we're going to learn everything about the organization, all the minutiae of it..."

Showtime's late April airdates are as follows:

Richard Burgi plays series lead Jim Ellison, a former Army Ranger now working as a detective for the Cascade PD in his Washington State hometown. Ellison finds himself almost overwhelmed when his dormant, and repressed, hyperactive senses are brought back online after a period of solitude on a remote stakeout. Anthropology doctoral candidate Blair Sandburg (Garett Maggart), whose chosen field of research is "Sentinels" -- people with such enhanced senses -- has the answers Ellison needs to control and work with his powerful and unpredictable abilities. Ellison's long-suffering captain, Simon Banks (Bruce A. Young) helps Ellison and Sandburg make the most of Ellison's sensory advantage by watching their backs and keeping their extrasensory escapades under the radar as much as possible.

While postcards, letters, and cards will be promptly forwarded to Richard, we cannot forward packages; he has asked that no gifts be sent to him.  Though Richard appreciates the goodwill and generosity those gifts represent, he finds them a little overwhelming.  Richard would be honored if, instead, wellwishers made a donation in his name to a local children's shelter or literacy program, or to the Pacific Marine Mammal Center .
