BIOGRAPHY

Character player Richard Schiff took an uncommon career path, starting out as a stage director on the New York theater scene and later discovering his talent and love for acting. A relatively late starter, Schiff racked up an impressive number of credits quickly into his career, landing increasingly larger roles in film, and becoming a familiar face due to his prolific guest work on television, in addition to regular roles on the series "Relativity" (ABC, 1996-97) and "The West Wing" (NBC, 1999- ). The balding actor's realistic, average looks, sad eyes and world-weary demeanor made him an especially believable frazzled Everyman, a role that he would play masterfully in several film and television productions.
