      Richard Lynch

      Highest Rated: 81% The Ninth Configuration (1980)

      Lowest Rated: 19% Invasion U.S.A. (1985)

      Birthday: Feb 12, 1940

      Birthplace: Brooklyn, New York, USA

      Sinister character actor Richard Lynch made his film debut in 1973's "Scarecrow," starring Al Pacino and Gene Hackman. This pessimistic crime drama set him on a path of mainly villainous roles for the rest of his career. Lynch played a cop in Lynn Redgrave's amusing "The Happy Hooker" in 1975, and he moved to television in the late 1970s, appearing on police shows, including "Baretta" and "Starsky and Hutch," usually as the criminal who winds up behind bars or wearing a toe tag. Lynch returned to features with "The Formula," a conspiracy thriller starring Marlon Brando and George C. Scott. Lynch continued to appear in television throughout the 1980s and 1990s, emerging in prominent roles on two rebooted sci-fi series: "Galactica 1980" (as a self-serving time-traveler) and "Star Trek: The Next Generation" (as a merciless space mercenary). Born in Brooklyn, Lynch served in the United States Marine Corps from 1958 to 1961. Afterwards, he honed his craft at the Actors Studio under the tutelage of Lee Strasberg and worked in the theater before appearing in movies. Lynch died in 2012, remaining relatively active in films until his final days.
