Early life

A classically-trained actor and a native of the BronxNew York, Richardson first gained recognition as one of only eight U.S. high school students selected for the National Foundation for the Arts' "Arts '82" program. As a result of this he earned a scholarship to Syracuse University and a spot on aPBS special directed by the esteemed late John Houseman.

Richardson has usually portrayed villainous characters due to his deep and powerful voice.
