Peter Mark Richman was a serious football player before being sidelined by a knee injury, and after that he became a registered pharmacist and ran a drug store for a year. He turned to acting and did some television before landing the part of Gardner "Gard" Jordan in William Wyler's prestigious drama about Quaker life, "Friendly Persuasion," which starred Gary Cooper and Anthony Perkins. In 1957, Richman appeared with Ben Gazzara in the bizarre, unsettling film "The Strange One," but after that he focused mainly on television. He was cast in the lead role of the 1960s mob series "Cain's Hundred" as a Mafia lawyer, Nicholas Cain, who teams up with the FBI to go after his former employers. Richman also did guest appearances on a pair of otherworldly anthology series: "The Twilight Zone" and "The Outer Limits." Richman might be best known as the Reverend Snow, father of Suzanne Somers's Chrissy, on the popular television sitcom "Three's Company," and he also did a recurring role on the primetime sitcom "Dynasty" in the 1980s.
