Biography

Genial actor Richard Ruccolo caught the drama bug from high school plays and realized that acting would soon become his life's passion. He scored his first major career coup as neurotic fireman Pete Dunville on the popular ABC sitcom Two Guys, A Girl and A Pizza Place in 1998 (later renamed Two Guys and a Girl), but decided -- as that program drew to a close in 2001 -- to dramatically extend himself beyond the confines of sitcoms, initially with a lead portrayal of openly gay Special Ed instructor Tom in director Julie Davis' offbeat romantic comedy feature All Over the Guy (2001). After signing for a role on the gently comedic telemovie The One (2003), Ruccolo returned to the sitcom arena as the husband of an overworked domestic turned rock star (Nicole Sullivan) in the Lifetime network's situation comedy Rita Rocks (2008). ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
