[16 Apr 07] *** RBFC website moves to new hosting service at end of April *** -- At the end of April, www.richardburgi.com will be moving to a new website hosting service. In simplest terms, our current apartment building has gone condo, and our lease is up this month.

The new hosting service is already in place and the site has been set up on the new server, where it can presently be accessed through a "subdoman" address -- http://www.richardburgi.dreamhosters.com .

The actual www.richardburgi.com domain name will be transferred from the old hosting address to the new one at the end of the month. While the address change percolates through the DNS (Domain Name Server) network, you may encounter difficulties accessing the site through the www.richardburgi.com address; rest assured this will be short-term (generally two to three days).

Thankyou for your continued interest and support!


Richard films guest spot in ABC pilot The Call [16 Apr 07]*** Richard films guest spot in new ABC pilot titled The Call*** -- Richard Burgi recently filmed a guest spot as Frank on a new series pilot for ABC. Titled "The Call," the comedy from Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran of "24" and Dave Hemingston of "Kitchen Confidential," follows paramedics Nick Adams (Danny Comden) and Ian Wode (Kal Penn) in "24"-style real-time as they work to save a life each episode while wreaking havoc with each other's.

Kali Rocha of "Grey's Anatomy" plays their boss Wendy "the Wolf" Wolfram.

ABC won the series after a bidding war with Fox Television, according to Variety, and has committed to a six-episode order. The show's fate will be announced at the May "up front" when the Fall 2007 schedule is announced by ABC.

Richard joins DH castmates at charity golf tournament [16 Apr 07]*** Richard joins Teri Hatcher and Desperate Housewives castmates for charity golf tournament *** -- Richard Burgi (pictured at left with "Desperate Housewives" castmates Ricardo Antonio Chavira and Brenda Strong) joined several of the "Housewives" cast on Sunday, March 18th at the Desperate Golfers Casa Pacifica Second Annual Charity Fundraiser.

The event, organized by Teri Hatcher and John and Rebecca Elliott, was held at the Sterling Hills Golf Club in Camarillo, CA. In addition to the golf tournament, the event also featured a dinner, a raffle, and an auction, all in support of the Casa Pacifica children's home.

Hatcher and her "Desperate Housewives" castmates, along with some members of the show's crew, were part of the estimated 120-player strong tournament. Players donated anywhere from a couple hundred to a couple thousand dollars to play in the event.  Hatcher hoped to raise $30,000 from the tournament 

Casa Pacifica is a Southern California home for abused, neglected, or at-risk children.

Richard attends Vegas premiere of Spamalot [16 Apr 07]*** Richard and Lori Burgi attend Las Vegas premiere of "Monty Python's SPAMALOT"*** -- Richard and Lori Burgi attended the March 31st Las Vegas Gala Opening of the hit Broadway musical, "Monty Python's SPAMALOT" at The Grail Theater at the Wynn Las Vegas hotel.

Based on the 1975 movie "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," SPAMALOT is a mix of new and old, with some of the more memorable scenes from the film woven into a new story by Python alumnus Eric Idle. Vegas-style glitz and glamor are added though a number of rousing song and dance routines. 

SPAMALOT is now playing at the new The Grail Theater at the Wynn Las Vegas, with performances scheduled daily except Thursdays.

Richard to appear in Las Vegas Fall 07 season premiere [16 Apr 07] *** Richard's three back-to-back episodes of NBC's  "Las Vegas" lead to return in the Fall 2007 premiere *** -- Richard's  three back-to-back episodes of "Las Vegas," which aired February 23rd - March 2nd, will be followed by at least one more appearance for the creepy billionaire Vince Peterson.

Peterson, a New York hedge-fund billionaire and high-stakes gambler with a taste for the Vegas lifestyle, was introduced in "Bare Chested in the Park," with "Junk in the Trunk" setting up his obsession with and abduction of Sam (Vanessa Marcil), and "Heroes" creating a multiple-thread cliffhanger which includes Vince flying the coop with Sam trussed up in a steamer trunk. The Fall '07 premiere will undoubtedly pick up where "Heroes" ended, with multiple characters in dire straits and Sam in a trunk in the hold of Peterson's private jet.

NBC's show page gives the description of "Las Vegas" excerpted below:

From Gary Scott Thompson -- the writer of the hit film “The Fast and the Furious” -- comes “Las Vegas,” now entering its third season. This fast-paced, sexy drama follows the elite Las Vegas surveillance team charged with maintaining the security of one of “Sin City’s” largest resorts and casinos.

Oscar and Golden Globe Award nominee James Caan (“The Godfather,” “Misery”) stars as Ed Deline, the head of the surveillance team for the Montecito Resort & Casino. With his protégé, Danny McCoy (Josh Duhamel, “All My Children”) a former U.S. Marine and Las Vegas native, they deal with card-counting cheaters, costly streaks of random luck and rival casinos stealing their big-money players.

Catch Richard in Hostel Part 2 in June 2007 [16 Apr 07] *** Richard Burgi dives into the horror genre with a part in Eli Roth's "Hostel: Part II"*** -- Richard finished his work in Prague, Czech Republic in late October on the much-anticipated sequel to writer-director Eli Roth's horror blockbuster, "Hostel."  The movie is now in post-production with a June 8th 2007 premiere date.

Eli Roth gave MTV.com some teasing details on "Hostel: Part II," including (we assume) 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..."

Ellison's long-suffering captain, Simon Banks (Bruce A.

Richard plays Det. Kirk in Decoys [16 Apr 07] *** Catch Richard when "Decoys" airs on The Sci Fi Channel -- Monday, April 23rd at 11:00pm ET *** -- Richard plays Det. Francis Kirk in the Canadian-made tongue-in-cheek blend of sci-fi and horror, which airs on the Sci Fi Channel in late May and mid-June.

Richard made a quick trip to Ottawa, Canada, during March and April 2003 for his role in Decoys, which director Matt Hastings described as "American Pie meets Species" -- a sci-fi thriller set on a college campus. Richard plays Detective Francis Kirk. According to the script, "He's a young cop who knows that he won't be in this small town busting college students for party pranks for much longer. He thinks he belongs somewhere between NYPD Blue and the cover of GQ."

The Species connection comes into play in the form of the beautiful and -- let us say -- otherworldy young women who descend upon the college campus in search of healthy and libidinous young men. Much as in Richard's 1998 version of I Married a Monster, alien beings come to Earth in search of mates -- only this time, it's the Outer Space womenfolk who are eager to reproduce. Unlike their Monster counterparts, these alien "femmes" are quite literally "fatales," as their reproductive process leaches the body-heat right out of their unfortunate paramours.

Richard's Detective Kirk becomes involved when the extraterrestrial temptresses leave a string of frozen young men in their wake.


Catch Richard in Fun With Dick and Jane on Starz in April [16 Apr 07] *** "Fun With Dick and Jane" airs on Starz, Starz Edge, and Starz Kids and Family Channels throughout April and May*** -- Richard plays Joe Cleeman, the upwardly mobile next-door neighbor of Jim Carrey's Dick Harper. Joe and his wife Veronica (Angie Harmon) are the couple Dick and Jane (Tea Leoni)  play "keeping up with the Joneses" with, battling for pecking order supremacy over cars, landscaping, and swimming pools.

Released in theaters in late 2005 and on DVD in April 2006, "Fun With Dick and Jane" is now available on the premium cable movie channel Starz with multiple airings throughout November.

Catch Richard in In Her Shoes on Cinemax in April [16 Apr 07] *** "In Her Shoes" airs thoughout April and May on various Cinemax channels*** -- Richard plays Jim Danvers, the weak-willed boyfriend of Rose (Toni Collette) Feller. Jim sees Rose as the kind of woman he could fall in love and settle down with, but succumbs to temptation in the form of Rose's 'party girl' sister Maggie (Cameron Diaz).

Finding Jim and Maggie en flagrante pushes Rose to the end of her rope, triggering her breakup with Jim and her estrangement from Maggie. Both sisters begin journeys of their own and find inner strengths they didn't know they had -- and in the process, find a grandmother (Ella, played by Shirley MacLaine) and, eventually, each other once more.

Richard's episodes of The District airing on the A&E and Biography Channels [16 Apr 07] *** "The District" now airing in repeats on the Biography Channel; Richard appears in Seasons 1, 3, and 4***  -- The Biography Channel is airing each episode twice daily, at 11:00am ET and 5:00pm ET Monday - Friday and 10:00am and 11:00am Saturday.  Remember to check your local listings or the  Biography Channel site for additional information:

http://www.aetv.com   and http://www.biography.com

NOTE: The A&E Channel appears to have taken "The District" off its current schedule for the time being.

Richard's Captain Hunter appeared in seven episodes of Season 1, two episodes of Season 3, and three episodes of Season 4.

A&E's episode rotation is now in Season 3, with Richard's next episode, "Goodbye, Jenny," airing at 7:00am on Wednesday, March 8th. 

The Biography Channel is now in Season 1, with Richard's episodes "The Agony and the Ecstasy" and "Running Towards Fire" airing on March 12th and 13th respectively.

The show is also airing in syndication in various international markets.

A complete listing of Richard's episodes of "The District" can be found on the Filmography page, with an expanded listing and episode details on the  District Guide page.

Richard appeared in three of the show's four seasons in a total of twelve episodes, playing the recurring role of the prickly and suspicious Captain Vincent Hunter, head of the DC Police Department's Internal Affairs Division.

Unfortunately, the show did not take maximum advantage of the Hunter character, though they established an intriguing back-story for him in the first season episode "The DC Strangler." Ella Farmer (played by the late Lynn Thigpen) told Chief Mannion (Craig T. Nelson) a bit about Hunter. He was a highly-decorated officer with a relatively high solve rate while in Homicide, a department he left after discovering his wife -- also a police officer --  in bed with his partner.

We cannot emphasize strongly enough that mail should not be sent to Richard's home address!  Receiving fan mail through his home address is a disquieting experience and cause for concern, especially from the standpoint of privacy and safety.  If you have come across what you believe may be his home address, please, do NOT use it! We -- and Richard -- would greatly appreciate it if you would let us know where you came across the address by using this e-mail link to the RBFC.

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.
