Richard Jordan - Rotten Tomatoes

Richard Jordan



Immediately upon his graduation from Harvard, actor Richard Jordan made the first of his over 100 New York stage appearances. Jordan's theatrical credits include a number of directorial assignments and eight years with Joseph Papp's New York Shakespeare Festival (at one time, Jordan was married to fellow Papp regular Kathleen Widdoes; he also fathered a child by actress Blair Brown). Though some previous reference works list a "Richard Jordan" as appearing in films from 1964, this Richard Jordan didn't make his first picture until 1971. As busy in TV movies as he was in theatrical features, Jordan played such leading roles as Joseph Armagh in the 1976 miniseries Captain and the Kings (a performance that won him a Golden Globe award), and Frederick in Woody Allen's Interiors (1978). Ever fascinated with the dark side of human nature, Jordan played many an unsympathetic role, notably Albert Speer in the 1981 TV movie The Bunker and rabble-rousing Georgia prosecutor Hugh Dorsey in the 1987 video biopic The Murder of Mary Phagan.
