Birthplace: Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, USA

With his mustache, receding hairline and somewhat portly frame, Richard Riehle has often been cast as corrupt characters whose bravado melts in the face of adversity, He spent over 15 years working in repertory theaters in Oregon, Alaska, Arizona and elsewhere, in addition to teaching acting in Northern California and at the University of Washington. Riehle ventured to Broadway in 1985 and beginning a career as a working character player. After debuting in "Execution of Justice," a play based on the murder of Harvey Milk, he remained in New York and often worked with the Classic Stage Company and the Public Theatre. Roles in the movies "Black Rain" and "Glory" (both 1989) and the miniseries "Cross of Fire" (NBC, 1989) convinced him to move to Los Angeles. It was his part in "Glory" that actually put Riehle on the potential casting lists in Hollywood; he was featured only in one scene as a quartermaster sneeringly denying the "Negro" soldiers shoes while bathing in his own corruption. Riehle went on to give a memorable portrayal of the Reverend Scroggins who twists the truth on the witness stand in Jon Avnet's "Fried Green Tomatoes" (1991). In 1993, he was the older guard who survives the train crash with Richard Kimball in "The Fugitive" and also appeared as a member of the panel in "Jury Duty" and in a small role in "Casino" (both 1995).
