Richard Anderson, probably best known for his role as Oscar Goldman in the 1970's series The Six Million Dollar Man, and The Bionic Woman died yesterday at the age of 91.

Richard Anderson Dies: TVís Oscar Goldman Was 91 | Deadline
Andersonís credits spanned more than 180 film and TV roles over six decades after starting his Hollywood career as a messenger at MGM. But he will be best remembered for playing Goldman, the handler of the bionic duo of Steve Austin and Jaime Sommers, played by Lee Majors and Lindsay Wagner.

He was a very familiar face on various TV shows, and a good actor, but I get him confused sometimes with Roy Scheider "were gonna need a bigger boat" from Jaws.

Roy Scheider 1932 - 2008


Richard Anderson RIP

Rest In Peace

I liked him in many shows. I see him a lot in the old Perry Mason shows that I watch on Me TV.

Well, if you tuned in to ME TV yesterday, they did an awesome Richard Anderson tribute. They had Anderson episodes all morning and afternoon, without really having to change their program schedule, as he was in so many different shows, lol. The guy had a seriousness about him that made the characters he played come off as believable and engaging. Pretty smooth, and I can definitely tell him apart from Roy Scheider now, lol. I think of Leslie Nielsen in the pre-Airplane years as one of the more serious actors, and Anderson fit into that category. He probably could have gone the comedy route too, in his later years, but Anderson's career didn't really need that kind of boost, he kept busy and we have a large volume of entertainment that came from him, and that counts for a lot. TV actors like Anderson are the workhorses that give us 100 hours of entertainment for every 1 hour we get from many other movie actors, many of whom were paid a lot more than Anderson.

I loved him as Oscar Goldman. He was a smooth, cool customer. He reminded me of my grandfather a bit.

It's funny now when I watch shows on ME TV. He must have guest-starred on every TV show from the 60s. I see him in supporting roles all the time. It makes me smile every time he randomly pops up in whatever show I happen to be watching at the time. I'm like, "Oh cool, it's Oscar Goldman!"

RIP to a great actor and a classy man.
