Birthplace: New York, New York, USA

New York native Richard Kline gained status as a 1970s icon thanks to his role as dark-haired disco king Larry Dallas, a sleazy bachelor on the oft-repeated sitcom "Three's Company" (ABC, 1977-84), but traded in his barely-buttoned shirt and gold medallion for more behind the scenes pursuits and scattered guest roles before returning to a starring sitcom role as a charming gray-haired dad in NBC's "Inside Schwartz" (2001). An appealing stage-trained actor who earned his MFA from Northwestern and made his acting debut with the Lincoln Center Repertory Company, Kline racked up stage credits before tackling television. An early TV guest role on a 1976 episode of "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" (CBS) and a part in the 1977 NBC miniseries "Seventh Avenue" predated his long run on "Three's Company." Following that success, he was to star in "His and Hers," a 1984 CBS sitcom that never made it past the pilot stage, though interestingly later starred in the similarly titled, short-lived sitcom "His & Hers" (1990) on the same network.
