[09 Dec 02] *** FOX's controversial sitcom Action to air as part of the Trio Channel's "Brilliant but Canceled" month-long special *** The Trio Channel -- a digital satellite/cable channel  ( http://www.triotv.com/ ) -- is running a month-long special presentation on "programs that were canceled in spite of their critical acclaim."  The controversial and short-lived series gave viewers an up close and personal look at the life of fictional movie producer Peter Dragon (Jay Mohr) and chronicled his struggle to get a movie produced.
Richard Burgi as Cole Riccardi in Action
Richard Burgi appeared in two episodes of the series, Pilot and Blowhard, as action/adventure hero Cole Riccardi. In Pilot, Riccardi is introduced as the star of Dragon's most recent film, "Slow Torture." The film is a flop, and Dragon's successful career is suddenly on the line. Of all the scripts in his possession, only one -- "Beverly Hills Gun Club" -- has potential; Dragon wheels and deals to get the film produced and hires Riccardi -- the star of many of his previous blockbuster films -- to lead his latest film. In Blowhard, Riccardi -- newly signed to Dragon's "Gun Club" -- surprises Dragon with an unexpected announcement; he's gay, and wants to come out of the closet. In an effort to keep Riccardi in the closet -- and "Gun Club" from disaster -- Dragon pretends to be gay himself, which Riccardi misinterprets. Trapped by his lie, Dragon finds himself sharing an unexpected night of passion with his star. Just when Dragon thought his life couldn't get any more complicated...

Trio will air the two episodes throughout December, as listed below:
 
Pilot
09 Dec -- 8:00pm 
14 Dec -- 8:30pm
25 Dec -- 11:00am
27 Dec -- 8:00am & 2:00pm
30 Dec -- 1:30pm
Blowhard
10 Dec -- 8:30pm
14 Dec -- 10:00pm

[09 Dec 02] *** Richard is back as Judging Amy's Michael Cassidy -- Tuesday, December 10th at 10:00pm ET/PT on CBS *** Richard's next episode of Judging Amy, titled "People of the Lie," takes Michael and Amy (Amy Brenneman) further down the road towards a messy custody battle for their daughter Lauren (Karle Warren).
Richard as Michael Cassidy in Judging Amy
Richard completed an additional episode of Judging Amy hard on the heels of "People of the Lie;" while we are not absolutely certain, the TVGuide listing for the December 17th episode, titled "Lost and Found," mentions Michael and describes unsettling steps he is taking to advance his case for custody of their daughter. This may well be Richard's next episode of Judging Amy, so keep that in mind...

Richard officially returned to Judging Amy  as Michael Cassidy in the Fall 2002 season premiere, "Lost in the System," which aired on October 1st. The TV Guide description is excerpted below:

"The drama's fourth season picks up where it left off last spring, with Judge Amy Gray (Amy Brenneman) in the middle of a messy custody battle. Amy is hot under the collar about having to attend mediation sessions with her ex-husband, Michael (Richard Burgi), to whom she is unwilling to surrender their daughter, Lauren."

According to the August 27, 2002 issue of Soap Opera Weekly (pg.13), Richard's character, Michael, is to figure prominently in the Fall 2002 season. "Amy's ex, Michael, who is not pleased with Amy's new living arrangements, follows through on his threats to fight for custody of their daughter, Lauren. 'The custody battle between them is going to be an ongoing thing this season,' reveals [head writer Barbara] Hall."

To learn more about Judging Amy, visit the show's homepage at the CBS website: http://www.cbs.com/primetime/judging_amy/

Don't forget to use the CBS site's feedback option to tell them how much you enjoyed seeing Richard on Judging Amy, and how much you look forward to seeing more of him in the role of Michael Cassidy this season!

*** UK Viewers, Catch Richard's second Judging Amy episode on the Hallmark Channel *** -- "Nobody Expects the Spanish Inquisition" will air Thursday, September 19th on Hallmark UK.  Richard appears in two of the current season's episodes of the hit CBS drama,  playing the part of Judge Amy Gray's (Amy Brenneman) ex-husband, Michael Cassidy.

Richard's episodes so far:

  • "The Justice League of America" (episode 3.18) aired 26 Mar 02
  • "Nobody Expects the Spanish Inquisition" (episode 3.23) aired 14 May 02
  • "Lost in the System" (episode 4.01) aired 01 Oct 02
  • "People of the Lie" (episode 4.10) aired 10 Dec 02
Richard's first appearance in the popular CBS series was in the episode "The Justice League of America," (26 Mar 02) which reintroduced viewers to Michael Cassidy. (The role has been played in previous seasons by John Slattery, who was apparently unavailable due to his current commitment to the series "Ed"). Filmed in early April, the May 14th episode brings Richard's recurring Judging Amy appearances to two, with additional appearances as Judge Amy (Amy Brenneman) Gray's ex-husband Michael Cassidy likely in the Fall 2002 season.

Judging Amy is currently airing on Tuesday nights at 10:00pm ET/PT.

According to the CBS website,  "'Judging Amy' is a drama starring Amy Brenneman ('NYPD Blue') as a single mother who has left New York behind and become a family court judge in Hartford, Connecticut. Recently divorced and raising her young daughter Lauren (Karle Warren), Judge Amy Gray has moved in with her very opinionated mother, Maxine (Tyne Daly); re-established a friendship with her free-spirited brother, Vincent (Dan Futterman); her older brother, Peter (Marcus Giamatti), and his wife, Gillian (Jessica Tuck), and is continuing to make her fresh start work. Assisting Amy in the courtroom are her court services officer, Bruce Van Exel (Richard T. Jones) and her overeager court clerk, Donna Kozlowski-Pant (Jillian Armenante). 'Judging Amy,' based on the real-life story of Brenneman's mother, is about three generations of women living together as they confront the personal and professional dilemmas in their changing challenging lives."

Tele Cable Satellite, Hebdo No. 655, 18 November 2002[12 Dec 02] *** Richard mentioned in 24 article in "Tele Cable Satellite HEBDO," Number 655, 18 Nov 02 *** 24 continues to garner attention in the French press, where the show's first season is drawing to a close. Issue 655 of Tele Cable Satellite features the Golden Globe-winning series in an article titled "24 heures chrono: 100% adrenaline" (the series is called "24 heures chrono" in France). Subtitled as the "Sutherland Express," the article (not fully pictured at left) by Tony Crawley begins with an update on the series, complete with quotes from Kiefer Sutherland, and moves on to a brief check-in with 24's other castmembers.

The section, titled "Confidences en Temps Reel" (Secrets in Real Time), has a photo of Richard Burgi as the nefarious Kevin Carroll under the heading 11H00 - 12H00. The section, kindly translated for us by Christine, reads as follows:

11H00 - 12H00  Richard Burgi was reached in the depths of Colorado. He is one of the "bad guys" who reveals himself to Teri Bauer while she is tearing along with him to find her kidnapped daughter, ending up kidnapped herself. "I didn't know I was a bad guy -- until the day I had to strangle the girl" (Kim Bauer's friend). To cloud the issue, the actors are deliberately left in a vague state as they move on, finding out with each episode who they have to play with.

Planet Scoop Number 16, December  02 - January 03[12 Dec 02] *** Richard Burgi featured in double-page spread article in France's "Planet Scoop" magazine (number 16, Dec '02 - Jan '03) *** Planet Scoop's "An eye on..." articles  are mini-biographies of the featured actors. As is sometimes the case, the chronological order of career events has been shuffled a little in the "Planet Scoop" biography -- for instance, Richard's "Whos' the Boss" episode aired in 1991, not '84, and Daytime roles lead to Primetime sitcom and drama roles rather than the reverse. Nevertheless, it is always good to see Richard's career being covered by the press, and European articles tend to run with excellent photos, as can be seen in the "Planet Scoop" spread below.

Richard's article reads as follows (translation courtesy of Christine):

***
RICHARD BURGI

Occupation: actor
Date of birth: July 30th 1958
Place of birth: Montclair (New Jersey)
Astrological sign: Leo
Marital status: married to Lori Kahn - 2 sons Jack and Samuel

"It's incredible how many times I got hurt during the shooting of The Sentinel"

As a child and a teenager, Richard grows up and moves in an artistic universe, within a close-knit New Jersey family. His parents are fond of theater and music. Very early, the young boy has a particular passion for theater. Richard found his way: he wanted to be an actor.

Having finished his studies, he takes the opportunity to travel across the US and Europe. Finally, he settles in New York. He begins as a model in commercials, then gets small parts in many sitcoms, notably "Whos' the Boss" (1984), "Another World" (1986-88), "Seinfeld" (1990), and "Days of Our Lives" (1992-93). But it's on stage that young Richard stands out. He appears in different plays in Montclair, his native town, but also in Milan with Pirandello's "Six Characters in Search of an Author," Suddenly Last Summer" in Nutley, "Ayden" in New York. To diversify his roles, he decides to settle in Los Angeles to go on with his career as an actor.

After several castings, producers Danny Bilson and Paul DeMeo entrust him with the part of devilish Lane Cassidy for four episodes in the series "Viper" (1994). But it's the character of Mack Wolfe in the cop show "One West Waikiki" (1994-95), with Cheryl Ladd, that will allow Richard's career to take off. In 1996, "Viper" producers engage him to play detective James Ellison in the show "The Sentinel." It's such a success in the US and in Europe that sixty-five episodes will be shot until 1999 (four seasons).

Since 1999, Richard has been moving from one series to another: he is Michael Cassidy in the drama series "Judging Amy" (three episodes), Kevin Carroll in the phenomenal "24" (four episodes), but he also plays in such in series such as "Action," "Providence," or "The District." He takes part in two television movies: "I Married a Monster" (1998) and "Bailey's Mistake" (2001). In the spring of 2002, Richard comes back on stage in Los Angeles, in the play "Johnny on the Spot." This year he appeared in an independent movie, "Wheelmen," in which he plays Nick, who is put in charge of thwarting a plot against the higher spheres...

[09 Dec 02] *** Richard returned to The District in "The Second Man" -- Saturday, November 9th at 9:00pm ET/PT on CBS ***  Richard once again played  Captain Vincent Hunter in "The Second Man."
Richard as Captain Hunter in The Second Man
According to the TV Guide online listing for the episode:

"During a struggle, deputy chief Noland shoots a college student he believes is about to rob a convenience store with a gun, but the ensuing investigation doesn't turn up a weapon. Soon, Internal Affairs demands that Noland be suspended, but Mannion refuses to take his badge. Also, the student's wealthy parents threaten to bring charges against Noland."

No word so far as to whether Richard will be in any additional Fall 2002 season episodes of The District.

** French fans, look for Richard every Sunday at 3:30pm on Channel 2 ** The District recently joined the lineup on France's Channel 2, where it is known as "Washington Police."

[04 Nov 02]*** First Annual Marine Mammal Masquerade Benefit Gala held as planned *** -- The FSLMMC charity event, The First Annual Marine Mammal Masquerade Benefit Gala, lived up to its promise of "...an evening of revelry and celebration."
Richard emceeing the FSL benefit
Held from 6:00 - 10:30 pm on Saturday, October 26th, at the Richard MacDonald Gallery  in downtown Laguna Beach, the Benefit was emcee'd by the evening's Special Guest, Richard Burgi. Attendees were feted with music, wine and spirits, hors d'oeuvres, a dinner buffet, and a veritable treasure trove of a silent auction. In addition to the band, the guests were entertained by Tarot card readers, fortune tellers, and body painters specializing in the Eastern art of Mendhi, an intricate and delicate form of temporary henna tattooing. The experience was further enhanced by the setting, as the MacDonald Gallery houses an extraordinary collection of artwork.

In keeping with the "casual, funky, and fun" masquerade theme of the evening, Richard cut a dashing figure in a tuxedo and blue Hawaiian shirt combo, complete with bow-tie, blue canvas shoes, 1950's-era glasses, and a Don King-style wig.

As Master of Ceremonies, Richard announced the winners of the evening's silent auction, to which he and wife Lori donated a first-season 24 crew sweat-shirt and a script for his most recent episode of The District, "The Second Man." When not on stage as Emcee, Richard spent much of the evening mingling with the attendees and visiting with friends, stopping to chat with people and take pictures with them.

There is a good possibility that the FSLMMC will have a photographer on hand to take photos of Richard at the event, and possibly at the MMC with some of the furrier residents, for sale to Richard's fans and FSLMMC supporters. Such photos would be sold to benefit the FSLMMC. For further information, visit the FSLMMC website at www.fslmmc.org, or contact the FSLMMC at:

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.
