Biography

A dark-haired, deep-voiced actor with looks and talent more befitting a risk-taking character player than a white bread leading man, Rick Hoffman worked steadily in bit parts from his 1997 debut, but only stopped waiting tables when, in 2000, he landed a regular role on the doomed Fox drama "The $treet. " A Long Island native who studied drama at the University of Arizona in Tucson and headed to Los Angeles to pursue a career, Hoffman was so nervous while filming his brief role in 1997's "Conspiracy Theory" that he blew his lines. Luckily, his misread got laughs, was included in the final draft and got the actor some much-needed attention. That same year he had guest roles in the series "The Pretender" (NBC) and "Alright Already" (The WB).

I know it's important to know the kind of person you're working with, and I know for a fact that he's a good guy." - from designntrend.com, Jan. 2, 2016
