With a career spanning nearly five decades, Jack Riley became a familiar face to countless TV fans-even if some don't know his name. Born in Cleveland in 1935, Riley first entered show business hosting a radio show on his hometown's AM station WERE. After serving in the U.S. Army, Riley took his act to Los Angeles, where he landed his first big break co-starring on the TV series "Occasional Wife" (NBC, 1966-67). When that series wrapped, Riley embarked on what would become the mainstay of his career: memorable TV appearances. Between 1967 and 1972 alone, Riley appeared on sixteen different shows, including "I Dream of Jeannie" (NBC, 1965-1970), "The Partridge Family" (ABC, 1970-1974), and "Hogan's Heroes" (CBS, 1965-1971). In 1972, Riley joined the cast of the popular sitcom "The Bob Newhart Show" (CBS, 1972-1978) as the comically dour Elliot Carlin. He played the character throughout the show's six-year run, and when the series wrapped in 1978, Riley returned to his streak of guest appearances. He would show up on everything from "Hart to Hart" (ABC 1979-1984), to "Eight is Enough" (ABC, 1977-1981), to "Family Ties" (NBC, 1982-1989). In 1991, Riley took on the voice acting role of Stu Pickles on the popular animated series "Rugrats" (Nickelodeon, 1991-2005). He would stick with the series for its entire run, concurrently playing the same role on the show's spinoff, "All Grown Up!" (Nickelodeon, 2003-07). Jack Riley died in 2016. He was 80 years old.
