This leading man of TV dramas segued from soap operas to star as "The Sentinel" (UPN, 1996-98), a police investigator with heightened senses. Richard Burgi came from a family involved in community theater in suburban Montclair, NJ. He went to New York after high school, where he eventually landed regular roles on Manhattan-based soap operas, notably as the macho Chad Rollo on NBC's "Another World" and the mysterious and murderous Glenn Harrington on CBS' "As the World Turns." Moving west, muscular, dark-haired actor landed the role of Phillip Collier on NBC's "Days of Our Lives" before forsaking daytime for primetime, racking up numerous guest appearances on shows ranging from the sitcoms "Who's the Boss?" and "Empty Nest" to dramas like "Matlock" and "The Flash." He made his TV-movie debut in "Chameleons" (NBC, 1989) and had a more substantial role as an army major in "Danielle Steel's 'Message From Nam'" (NBC, 1993). In series, Burgi had recurring roles on "Jake and the Fatman" (CBS) and on the NBC sci-fi drama "Viper" (NBC, 1993-1994; 1996-1999). His first lead was on the short-lived "One West Waikiki" (CBS, 1994), a police drama about a medical examiner (Cheryl Ladd) and a detective (Burgi) who work together to solve homicide cases in Honolulu.
