Both photos are 8x10, and are autographed by Richard Burgi.
The first photo (# 1 at left) is a color 8x10 reproduction of the "Most Sensitive Man in America" poster, which was seen by fans in January 1999 at the Pet Fly Productions office complex in Burbank, California. The photo is signed by Richard in blue permanent ink.

If paying by check, please be sure to make it payable to Kathleen
Cole rather than the RBFC, as the bank tends to frown on checks made
out in the Club's name.
Your Raffle "chances" and check (or PayPal transaction information) must arrive at the RBFC mailbox by Saturday, December 13th to be included in the Raffle drawing. Please address your envelopes to:
Good Luck, and thanks for playing!
[14 Nov 03] *** Cole Riccardi rides again! Comedy Central to air Action *** -- Starting at 3:00pm ET on Friday, November 21st, the Cable comedy channel, Comedy Central, will air the short-lived and controversial FOX comedy, Action. Jay Mohr leads the cast as movie producer Peter Dragon and is joined by Illeana Douglas, Buddy Hackett, Jarrad Paul, Jack Plotnick... and, of course, Richard Burgi in two episodes as action movie hero Cole Riccardi.
Check page 10 of the current issue of TV Guide (November 15-21) for a short article on Action, which it describes as a "critically acclaimed (but ratings-deprived) satire about vicious deal-making in Hollywood."
First up, at 3:00pm on the 21st, is "Pilot," in which -- as put by Zap2it -- "venomous filmmaker Peter Dragon connives his way through contemporary Hollywood with his chauffeur by his side."
So far, Action appears on the Comedy Central schedule on Friday the 21st and Saturday the 22nd -- and at present, three episodes are missing from their lineup.
Friday, November 21st
Saturday, November 22nd
Missing from schedule thus far
Richard's second episode, "Blowhard," was the fourth episode to air, and one of the most controversial installments due to the content of one of the scenes between Peter and Cole. By the time we get to "Blowhard," Peter is struggling to bring his make-or-break comeback film, "Beverly Hills Gun Club," before the cameras. He hires Cole to play the film's hero, only to have the wind knocked out of his sails when Cole stops by one evening to share a personal decision with him -- Cole's gay and wants to come out. Peter, seeing his new movie going down the tubes, two-steps and connives to keep Cole in the closet, telling the actor that he himself is gay and closeted.
Told to ditch Cole without having to pay him the pay or play terms of his contract, Peter decides to convince Cole to back out of the film... by convincing him to come out of the closet after all, to quit Hollywood, and to take to the boards of Broadway. As they meet in Cole's hotel room, the actor is clearly hoping for a romantic rematch -- "Encore, mi Amore?" he asks. Peter quickly sidesteps Cole's overtures by cutting to the chase with the "you're too good for Hollywood" routine, and by trotting out the "we've got to be strong" line to avoid another roll in the hay.
Cole has the last laugh, though; he comes out on E! news Daily, no less, telling E! anchor Steve Kmetko of his decision, and of his new romance... with his closeted lover, Peter Dragon.

[14 Nov 03] *** Richard's Captain Hunter back on the job in Fall 2003 episodes of "The District"*** -- Richard returned to the set of "The District" on Monday, October 27th to film a third episode of the show. Though we have no information on episode name or airdate at present, we are assuming a late November or December broadcast, so keep checking those local listings! (And remember to catch his first two Fall 2003 episodes in reruns!)
Richard was front and center in the teaser of "Jack's Back," the September 27th season premiere of The District. Hunter, in fine form and characteristically suspicious, cynical, and hard-nosed, takes special interest in the pursuit of an Internal Affairs investigation of Detective Temple (Sean Patrick Thomas) Page's shooting of a long-pursued drug dealer and murderer. Hunter features prominently in the episode.
** Update ** -- Richard will appear in additional episodes of The District this season, though at present we are unable to offer details on episode names or likely airdates. Check your local listings for mention of Richard or Captain Hunter, and keep in mind that the listings sometimes overlook Hunter's presence in the episodes.
*** International Update -- UK *** -- The District will return to the UK airwaves with Season Two's "The Project," which means viewers have several weeks to go before Richard's Season Three episodes air.
(Thanks to Marion for the update)
*** International Update -- Singapore *** -- The District is scheduled to air in Singapore Monday - Friday, starting on Monday, September 29th. As with the UK broadcasts, the show will launch with Season Two episodes. (The District is apparently moving into the timeslot recently occupied by Judging Amy).
(Thanks to Gerri for the update)
*** International Update -- France *** -- The District returns to French television on Monday, October 20th, airing at 4:00pm (16.05 H) Monday to Friday on Antenne 2 (A2). The show's French title translates as "Washington Police."

[11 Oct 03] *** Richard now filming new Kim Basinger thriller for New Line Cinema *** -- Richard began work on Cellular this week, playing the supporting role of Craig Martin, husband of Jessica Martin (Kim Basinger). The New Line Cinema thriller is expected to be released in early 2004. The Los Angeles-based production has been filming for several weeks already, and is expected to continue until the Thanksgiving holidays.
Cellular stars Kim Basinger as Jessica Martin, with Chris Evans as Ryan Ackerman, William H. Macy as Bob Mooney, and Jason Statham as Greer. The Cellular page at the Internet Movie Database -- http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0337921/ -- gives the following summary:
"A young man (Evans) receives a call on his cellular phone from a woman (Basinger) who says she's been kidnapped, and thinks she's going to be killed soon, along with her husband and son who the kidnappers have gone after next. The catch? She doesn't know where she is... and his cell phone battery might go dead soon."

*** CBS announces launch date for Fall 2003 season *** -- Judging Amy returns for another season on Tuesday, September 23rd at 10:00pm Eastern. No word yet on when Richard will be back as Amy's ex-husband (and daughter Lauren's father) Michael Cassidy, but with current boyfriend Stu's proposal hanging in the air and Lauren none too thrilled with the idea of her mother remarrying, we assume Michael will be back sooner rather than later.
*** Richard comes under the wire with one more Judging Amy *** -- Richard's most recent episode of Judging Amy, titled "Marry, Marry Quite Contrary," originally aired 06 May 03 and repeated in September. With three months of therapy under his belt, Michael's attitudes have changed considerably, in ways which clearly surprise and move Amy. Will this bode well for Richard's return in the coming season? Time will tell, but there is clearly still an emotional connection between Michael and Amy which will complicate any marital developments on Amy's horizon.
"Amy feels conflicted about whether to tell Lauren that She's in a romantic relationship with Stu. Meanwhile, Peter worries Gillian is setting herself up for a disappointment bu believing that their baby is a girl. Elsewhere Kyle has a business date with Lily for the ballet; Kimberly Fallon (Alice Dodd) is in Amy's courtroom defending a 16-year-old's decision to get married; and Bruce ruffles a parole officer's feathers by personally investigating a teen's probation violation."
Amy's relationship troubles lead to a period of self-doubt, which comes to a head when Michael comes over to drop off one of Lauren's (Karle Warren) schoolbooks. Amy invites her ex-husband in for coffee and at first, Michael is hesitant, not sure exactly what to expect. Michael has just as many surprises for Amy, as he is gentle, compassionate and considerate when she reveals her doubts and fears to him.
Amy wonders whether her problems with long-term relationships result from her own inadequacies, going so far as to speculate that their own marriage problems may have all been her fault. Michael doesn't take the easy, self-serving route; instead, he gently jokes with Amy that her problems stem from her never having gotten over him, reminds her of the undeniable good times they shared, and lets her off the hook, displaying a new depth of self-awareness and compassion. As he tells her, once upon a time, he had a wife who showed him how good marriage could be, and didn't know what he had until he lost it. A warm hug and kiss later, Michael is out the door, reminding Amy that he'll pick their daughter up on the weekend as usual.

[07 Aug 03] *** The Sentinel now airing on UK SciFi Channel, Tuesday through Friday at 6:00pm. *** -- According to an article in the "In Production - News" section (dated 22 Apr 03) of the Cult TV website ( http://www.cult.tv/ ), The Sentinel was scheduled to join the UK's SciFi Channel schedule on June 17th, airing Tuesday through Friday at 6:00pm.
The Cult TV article, titled "Sentinel Debuts in UK," had this to say of the series:
"Richard Burgi is Detective James Ellison, who crashes during a tour of duty in the jungles of Peru, while serving with the US Army's Special Forces. Unknown to him, months in the wilderness have left him with many psychic and perceptual gifts. His senses are heightened, and five years after his return to the States, he finds that he can suddenly use these skills to the greater good in his home of suburban Cascade, Washington. He has become the type of person foretold by the legends of ancient tribes -- he is a 'Sentinel.'
With a loyal following in America and in various territories around the world, The Sentinel finally gains itself a UK transmission. Having run from 1996 to 1999, 65 episodes were produced, and it is only now, thanks to Sci-Fi (Channel), that the gifted cop can be appreciated by British audiences."
The article went on to give a short resume for Richard:
"Star Richard Burgi is easily recognisable to fans of the first season of 24. Although we all thought he was Alan York, father of a missing teenage daughter, he turned out to be hired assassin Kevin Carroll! He has recently been seen on CSI as a paragliding instructor, and has appeared regularly on Judging Amy Stateside, replacing John Slattery in the role of Michael Cassidy, ex-husband of Judge Amy Gray. He's also reprised his role of Captain Hunter in The District this year."

TV8 interviewed Richard for an article announcing the launch.
TV8 -- Swiss TV Guide magazine -- interview with Richard Burgi
"I adored breaking my image!" - Richard Burgi
Having the looks of a poster boy for seduction and charm, Richard Burgi could easily have remained his whole life in soap operas like Days of our Lives, where he played the character of Phillip Collier. That would be misjudging the this actor who likes to play with his image. That's why, after being Detective James Ellison, the well known hero fighting for justice in The Sentinel, he has played various parts in sitcoms like Seinfeld, Veronica's Closet or in a hilarious episode of Just Shoot Me, recently seen on TSR [the Swiss French-speaking channel - ed]. In 24 Hours Chrono, he surprises us by playing yet another type of chaacter, the mysterious Alan York.
What did particularly interest you in this role?
In the first episode of the series, all we know about Alan York,
is that he is worried about his daughter. Can you really not tell us a
little bit more about him?
Is that really important?

[19 Sep 03] ***UPDATE: Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation moving along the post-production pipeline towards current release date in March 2004*** -- Richard has been working periodically on post-production aspects of Starship Troopers 2 at Tippett Studio, where the bulk of the visual effects production is taking place. At present, expect to catch Richard as Captain Dax, Hero of the Federation of Starship Troopers 2, when the movie hits the shelves at DVD retailers in March '04.
Also look out for the August/September issue of Sci-Fi genre magazine Cinefantastique, which has a one-page article on Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation (which mentions Richard as the lead).
Richard worked from May 14th through June 20th on the long-awaited Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation, filming at Manhattan Beach Studios and on location in the Santa Clarita "canyon country" north of Los Angeles. Richard plays Captain Dax, the hero mentioned in the film's title.
Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation is produced by Jon Davison, with Phil Tippett directing. Tippett shot from a screenplay by Ed Neumeier, who also wrote the screenplay for the original Starship Troopers film. (All three worked on the first Starship Troopers, which was directed by Paul Verhoeven. Tippett's Tippett Studios produced the visual special effects for the first film, and is once again providing special effects for ST2).
When we -- and the besieged troopers -- first meet Captain Dax, he is the last man standing at an otherwise abandoned and desolate outpost on planet Zulu Angel. He is somewhat the worse for wear -- dirty, torn, unshaven, and more than a little war-weary. When the rapacious arachnids threaten to once again overrun the makeshift defenses of the old outpost, Dax must rally the rag-tag band of Troopers to fend off the marauding Bugs. Unfortunately for Dax and the Troopers, the arachnids have other things in mind for the unsuspecting humans...

Starship Troopers 2.net will work in association with Moviehole to provide the most up-to-date news and information on the project in general and will work with the RBFC to provide the latest news on Richard Burgi's involvement with the film.

[19 Sep 03] *** Joss Whedon gets green light for Firefly feature film *** -- According to a recent article in the Hollywood Reporter, Universal Pictures has secured the rights to Firefly from 20th Century Fox Television and plans to put a Firefly feature film into production in the first quarter of 2004. Series creator Whedon will adapt Firefly for cinematic release and will also serve as director.
According to the 04 Sep 03 Reporter article by Zorianna Kit and Chris Gardner, Firefly "was set 500 years in the future and centered on a crew aboard a spaceship. The feature version will incorporate the mythology from the show but will take on a more epic feel. Whedon hopes to enlist the entire cast to come back for the feature, depending on their previous commitments, with new characters added as well."
As Richard's Lieutenant Womack of Allied Enforcement was intended to become a recurring character, the possibility exists that Womack -- and Richard -- will have a part in the Firefly feature. Should this indeed prove to be the case, we will provide updates here at richardburgi.com.

WHEELMEN DRIVE ON!
LOS ANGELES, California, August 13, 2002. Wheelmen, a raucous limousine company comedy starring Richard Burgi, Michael Fairman, James Avery and Jason Kravits completed production in Los Angeles during a 19 day shoot and will be screened for distributors on August 22, 2002 at the Arclight Theaters Complex (6360 Sunset Blvd.). The film, directed by Dirk Hagen and produced by John Orland, is a Stretchpix, LLC production, Co-Produced by Lexi Alexander and Robert J. Ulrich , line producer on the production was Gary A. Lowe, production design by Robert E. Hummel, casting by Robert J. Ulrich, costume design by Emmy Taylor and Director of Photography, Don E. FauntLeRoy, A.S.C. and Editor Sherril Schlesinger.
NICK TORINO (Richard Burgi, Fox's "24" and CBS' "The District"), a former ambulance driver, is the acting patron of floundering Los Angeles limousine service, Venture Limousine. In his care are five other 'wheelmen': PAUL (Michael Fairman, "Dharma and Greg" and "The Practice"), a distinguished gentleman and twenty year vet of the limo world, VLADIMIR (Elya Baskin , Air Force One and Moscow On The Hudson), a Russian ex-bodyguard who's traded in his two pack a day cigarette habit for the strange icy goodness of Slurpees. KRISTEN (Lisa Arturo, American Pie II), a 'just one of the guys' sexy woman. RALPH (Adam Biesk, Flight of the Intruder and Meet The Applegates), a potted plant with a Class C license and ANDY COOPER (Greg Lee, "Xena Warrior Princess" and "Dark Angel"), a likeable, happy-go-lucky twenty something who lives every night like a Saturday night, waiting for "The Great Benefactor." Andy is convinced that BERNARD "BARNY" ALBERT TOMLINSON (Rainn Wilson , Almost Famous and Galaxy Quest) is "The Great Benefactor," until it is revealed that he is a paranoid Ex-Secret Service agent attempting to prevent a bizarre kidnapping attempt of the Vice President (James Avery, "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air"). Venture Limousine wheelmen have been assigned to the Vice President's motorcade unaware that they will become part of the plot to kidnap him.
As if putting up with his colleagues wasn't enough, Nick comes to work one day and discovers a little boy from his past named ARTHUR (Alexander Gould, Finding Nemo) waiting patiently for him in his office. After noticing several bruises on Arthur's neck, Nick drops the boy off at Social Services where he meets GWEN (Erin Daniels, One Hour Photo), a loving social worker assigned to Arthur's case. Things get complicated as Nick falls for Gwen, and little Arthur feels the rush of jealousy as he too has a crush on her.
[19 Sep 03] *** Write to Richard care of the RBFC! *** -- Richard has asked us to encourage anyone interested in sending cards or letters to him to use the RBFC mailing address, which is listed below. This allows Richard to better handle his incoming mail, which he certainly enjoys receiving, provided it comes through appropriate channels.
Mr. Richard Burgi
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 Friends of the Sea Lion Marine Mammal Center .
