Richard plays Logan Ayers in NIP/TUCK [05 Jul 08]*** Richard films episode of the FX Network's NIP/TUCK  *** -- Richard joined the cast of "NIP/TUCK" in mid-June for episode 5.21, titled "Allegra Calderella," which will actually air as episode 6.07 of Season 6. The show is currently expected to return to the FX schedule in early 2009. 

Richard plays Dr. Logan Ayers, a plastic surgeon and apparent acquaintance of Drs. Troy and McNamara (series leads Julian McMahon and Dylan Walsh). 

The casting breakdown for Ayers has this to say of the character: "35-45, extremely attractive and refined, James Bond, after a martini. He is a plastic surgeon with impeccable style and taste whose obessive-compulsive behavior is just one symptom of his extreme sexual compulsion."  The breakdown goes on to specify that the actor cast in the role must be comfortable with sexual situations and rear nudity.

Information on "NIP/TUCK" can be found at the FX website's official show page: http://www.fxnetworks.com/

Additional show information can also be found at the IMDb website:

Richard joins cast of Friday the 13th [05 Jul 08] *** Richard films role in "Friday the 13th" in Austin, TX*** -- Richard joined Jared Padalecki ("Supernatural," "Thomas Kinkade's Home for Christmas"), Derek Mears ("The Hills have Eyes II"), and Nana Visitor ("Star Trek: Deep Space Nine"), among others, in the Platinum Dunes produced reimagining of the 1980's horror hit, "Friday the 13th."

Richard plays Sheriff Bracke in the movie, which is set between the events of the first and second "Friday the 13th" films; Pamela (Nana Visitor) Voorhees, Jason's mad, mad mother and the actual killer of the first film, is dead and already enshrined in Jason's (Derek Mears) hovel hideaway, while Jason is all grown up and ready to take up his mother's machete.

Jared Padalecki plays a journalist drawn to Camp Crystal Lake to chronicle the ghastly events and history of the place; Richard's sheriff is presumably the long arm of the Law in the Crystal Lake area and may also be a witness to the gory aftermath of Mother Voorhees' rampage.

As one would expect in a "Friday the 13th" story, the cast is fleshed out with a selection of young people destined to run afoul of Jason Voorhees as they snoop about the ramshackle remains of Camp Crystal Lake and engage in impromptu bawdy romps amidst the ruins.

The film is currently expected to hit theaters on Friday, February 13th, 2009.

Richard plays Church Bishop Josiah Leavitt, the polygamist husband of Rowan's character, Judith Joseph. Judith is one of the charismatic Leavitt's eight wives, and mother to four of his children in addition to her own older daughter from a previous marriage. Several traumatic events spur Judith to do the unthinkable -- flee her small community with her children. Leavitt, of course, gives pursuit, luring Judith's oldest daughter back home with promises he doesn't intend to keep. Judith has no choice but to return home and make a stand.

"In God's Country" is produced by Shaftesbury Films Inc in association with Colossal Entertainment, Salient Point Productions, and CTV as part of CTV's "Heroes, Champions, and Villains" series of original features.

Richard plays creepy Vince Peterson on Las Vegas [05 Jul 08]*** Richard's Season 4 & 5 episodes of NBC's "Las Vegas" to air in syndication on TNT *** -- Richard's four back-to-back Season 4 & 5 episodes of "Las Vegas" began airing on TNT on Wednesday, July 2nd at 12:00 noon ET.  Originally airing on NBC in early 2007, the four episodes set up scenarios that lead into (and out of) the cliffhanger season finale.

"Bare Chested in the Park," which aired on July 2nd, introduced us to one of the Bellagio Hotel's regular "whales," Vince (Richard Burgi) Peterson, a hedge-fund billionaire with a taste for high-stakes gambling. Sam (Vanessa Marcil) schemes to woo Peterson away from the Bellagio and sees to it that he is coddled, cosseted, and carefully cultivated at the Montecito.

"Junk in the Trunk," which aired on July 3rd, finds Sam the new owner of the Montecito, and one saddled with an overwhelming tax debt. Peterson wines, dines, and woos Sam, going so far as to propose marriage on bended knee. Lured to his suite for a romantic dinner, Sam learns Peterson has known all along of her financial situation. Of course, she's been sipping on a drugged flute of champagne the whole while and passes out, allowing Vince to truss her up and stuff her into a padded steamer trunk.

"Heroes" airs on Monday, July 7th and finds Sam in dire straits, still locked away in the cramped trunk. The depth of Peterson's depravity becomes increasingly evident as he gleefully taunts and torments her -- seems he's done this before, this abduction of young women, and gotten away with it. Sam is promised a hell on earth as Vince checks out of the Montecito and heads for his private jet, Sam in tow in her tiny trunk. Their chapter ends with Vince's jet soaring into the night.

"A Hero Ain't Nothing but a Sandwich" opens seconds after "Heroes" ends and finds Peterson dragging Sam out of the trunk in order to terrify and abuse her sexually. Sam manages to pull the handle on the jet's emergency exit and Vince makes an impromptu exit and fall to earth sans parachute.

The Sentinel airs on Canada's SPACE: The Imagination Station [05 Jul 08]*** "The Sentinel" ending its current run  on Canada's SPACE: The Imagination Station on July 8th & 9th ***-- SPACE is wrapping out its current schedule rotation of  "The Sentinel" on Tuesday, July 8th with "The Sentinel by Blair Sandburg," which airs at 2:00pm ET. ("Most Wanted" will air on Monday, July 7th).

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.

Space began its "Sentinel" run with Season 1's "Switchman," the series pilot episode. The broadcast roster then followed the show's original UPN run and continued to air the episodes in original UPN airing order.

Richard plays Craig Martin in Cellular [05 Jul 08] *** "Cellular" airs July 8th and 9th on TBS  *** -- Richard plays Craig Martin, the "wrong place at the wrong time" realtor husband of movie heroine Jessica (Kim Basinger) Martin.  Unbeknownst to Jessica, Craig has videotaped crooked cops executing drug dealers -- and the crooked cops are desperate to tidy up loose ends. To get Craig and the camera, they abduct Jessica and the Martin's young son. Jessica has one ace up her sleeve -- she's managed to patch a busted phone together enough to tap out random phone numbers, and the guy on the other end, Ryan (Chris Evans), is willing to help. Problem is, he's on a cellphone, doesn't know where Jessica is... and his battery's running low.

TBS gives the following description for the film: "A random wrong number on his cell phone sends a young man (Chris Evans) into a high-stakes race against time to save a woman's life (Kim Basinger). With no knowledge of Jessica Martin other than her hushed, panicked voice on the other end of the tenuous cell phone connection, Ryan is quickly thrown into a world of deception and murder on his frantic search to find and save her."

"Cellular" will play twice in July on TBS:
Tuesday, July 8th at 10:00am ET
Wednesday, July 9th at 12:30am ET
