“Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon?” Please. How about “One Mustache of Richard Riehle?” You’ve seen Richard in literally everything. Hollywood’s secret weapon, Richard has starred in well over 300 feature films and television shows like GLORY, CASINO, FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS, OFFICE SPACE, WEDDING CRASHERS, BRIDESMAIDS, TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION, GROUNDED FOR LIFE, TWO AND A HALF MEN, STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION and VOYAGER, QUANTUM LEAP, and THE GOLDEN GIRLS.

Though Adam and Joe already knew Richard well having worked with him on HATCHET and CHILLERAMA, listen as they finally hear the whole story behind one of Hollywood’s hardest and most consistently working talents. How did it all start? What was it like working with John Wayne? Did Richard’s mustache actually play a role in him getting his start? Where did he develop his incredible work ethic? What was the first horror film he ever did? How have actors and the business changed over the years? Did he think that OFFICE SPACE would become a classic when he was shooting it? Don’t break out your “Jump To Conclusions Mat” yet as the actual answers just may surprise you. One thing’s for sure, by the time The Movie Crypt’s theme song rolls at the end of the episode, you’ll understand just why Richard RIehle has had a career that most actors could only dream of. For riehles.
