comments: Rick Schroder has been acting for nearly 20 years, making the tough transition from child star, through young male star and into adult leading man sometimes bumpily. He's the first to admit he fell in with a fast crowd during his teen years and early 20's, but he seems to have come out the other side no worse for wear. Terribly cute as a kid star, he's grown into a real hunk of a man. Best known perhaps for a few milestones in his lengthy career, such as his stint on "Silver Spoons" and his role in the Lonesome Doves, his very first major role, in 1979's The Champ, earned him a well deserved Golden Globe nomination. His acting is natural and rarely forced, and it's hard to name a bad performance from this fine young actor. Seen most recently in 95's Crimson Tide, Rick turned in a bravo performance there too. Rick is currently living on his massive 16,000 acre ranch in Colorado with his wife and children. His latest project is Det. Danny Sorenson on "NYPD Blue".
