Richard was the special "Man of the Hour" guest on Hour Magazine, an afternoon talk show hosted by Gary Collins. He discredited the sensationalized tabloid story that Gary had found, but talked about his restlessness growing up in Minnesota. He also spoke about the action and stunts on MacGyver as well as the cerebral approach to problem solving that has attracted an audience. He acknowledged that his recent magazine cover shoot with current girlfriend Marlee Matlin was out of the comfort zone of someone who usually keeps a low profile and is still finding his way in dealing with "celebritydom."
