Richard first showed an interest in theatre during his college years. Richard was rarely the star of his college productions and wasn't much of an actor. He didn't get serious about acting until his senior year. His first role in a college play was in "George Washington Slept Here." Later he appeared in a production of "King Lear" which he had five lines of dialogue, a modest role in "The Lady's Not For Burning," and "Arms And The Man." It was in this last role that he thought for the very first time, "Ah, I can act!"
