Actor Richard Burgi has had quite the career since he got his start on Another World in the late '80s, landed recurring roles on former sudsers such as One Life to Life and CBS' As the World Turns, and then caused trouble on Days of Our Lives.

Whether you recognize him from his early soap days, his run as a Desperate Housewives hubby, his years solving crime as The Sentinel or his many other primetime stints, you know that this handsome actor can bring the charm… and also play deliciously dirty!
