Richard is one of the sons born to musicians; one of his brothers, Chuck Burgi is a notable drummer. He grew up in his hometown and went to Montclair High School. After matriculation, Richard spent several years in Europe working odd jobs.

Upon his return to the USA, he continued the same practice, but in the mid- ‘80s he decided to become a professional actor. He made his debut in the soap opera “Another World” (1986-1988), as Chad Rollo, followed by a string of roles in soap operas “As the World Turns” (1988-1989), and “One Life to Live” (1988). In 1992 he had another soap opera role, this time as Phillip Collier in “Days of Our Lives” (1992-1993). Two years later he was selected for the role of Detective Mack Wolfe in the TV series “One West Waikiki” (1994-1996), and then in 1996 his life changed completely when he was selected for the role of Jim Ellison in the action crime series “The Sentinel”. The series lasted until 1999, and Richard featured in all 65 episodes, which increased his net worth to a large degree, while also his name became more known in the Hollywood area thanks to the success of the show.

New TV roles came his way, and in 2001 he was selected for a double role in the TV crime action series “24”, as Alan York and Kevin Carroll, and then from 2002 to 2003 portrayed Michael Cassidy in the TV drama series “Judging Amy”.

Since then, his career has taken a turn for the better, as he has appeared in several high-profile films, including the sci-fi adventure “Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation” (2004), and action thriller “Cellular”, the same year. Also in 2004, Richard was chosen for the role of Karl Mayer in the TV series “Desperate Housewives”; although his role was only minor, since season two, he has become a regular on the show. Until the series end, he appeared in 46 episodes which only further increased his wealth.

The following year, Richard featured in the romantic comedy “In Her Shoes”, starring Cameron Diaz, Toni Collette and Shirley MacLaine, while in 2007 he portrayed Todd in the horror “Hostel: Part II”, directed by Eli Roth. He then returned to the TV screen with the role of Thomas Wellington in the TV horror series “Harper’s Island” (2009). After “Desperate Housewives” ended, Richard starred in the made-for-television film “Christmas Twister” (2012), while in 2013 he portrayed D.A. Dan Russell in the TV crime drama series “Body of Proof”, which also added to his net worth.

Starting in 2014 he had the role of Paul Hornsby in the soap opera “General Hospital” (2014-2016), and in 2015 he starred in the drama “No Letting Go”, next to Cheryl Allison, and David Schallipp.
Regarding his personal life, Richard has been married to Liliana Lopez since 2012. Previously, he was married to Lori Kahn, with whom he has two children.
