Rick Schroder (aka
Ricky), was born on April 13, 1970. Before he was
a tough guy on shows like "NYPD Blue," Schroder was a
spoiled little rich kid on the 80's TV series "Silver
Spoons." In the 1980's, Schroder was basically a
television actor. He starred in a ton of made for
TV movies, and some of you might even remember him for
his role as Newt Dobbs on the "Lonesome Dove" TV
min-series. Schroder starred in only two lesser
known 80's movies that we know of, The Last Flight of
Noah's Ark (1980) and The Earthling (1980). Quick
Fact: Schroder left "NYPD Blue" to spend time with
his family (he has 4 kids). Way to go, Ricky!
Nice to know somebody knows what is important.
Schroder continues working these days, can currently be
seen on a TV series called "Strong Medicine."
