Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Richard Romanus is a character actor who has regularly found work on high-profile network television series throughout his career, from "Charlie's Angels" in the '70s to "NYPD Blue" in the '90s. He also managed to work with his brother, actor Robert Romanus, in a couple of episodes of "MacGyver." His most prominent TV role was playing the husband of Dr. Jennifer Melfi (Lorraine Bracco) in the HBO mob drama "The Sopranos." He has also appeared in a number of motion pictures, such as 1993's "Point of No Return," where he acts in a pivotal scene with the movie's star, Bridget Fonda, and the ominous Cleaner played by Harvey Keitel. His voice can be heard in animated feature films, including the adult-oriented cult classic "Heavy Metal," where he plays the lead role in the Harry Canyon segment. His most significant critical success came in the form of a Writers Guild of America Award nomination for the Lifetime original film he co-wrote and co-produced, "If You Believe." The movie features a young Hayden Panettiere playing the role of the inner child of a jaded and depressed woman.
