Richard Bartlett Schroder (born April 13, 1970 in Staten Island, New York) is a Golden Globe Award-winning actor who began his career as a child actor (then and currently credited as Ricky Schroder). Schroder debuted in the 1979 remake of the movie The Champ, winning the Golden Globe Award for Best New Male Star of the Year in a Motion Picture at the age of nine. In the following year, he made a Walt Disney feature film called The Last Flight of Noah's Ark with Elliott Gould. Although Schroder's performance is generally recognized as good, the film bombed at the box office. He became well-known as the star of the television series Silver Spoons. As he grew older, he struggled to become known as a serious actor. He changed his name credit from Ricky to Rick and preferred to take roles which helped him to stretch as an actor.

Schroder's co-starring role in the Western mini-series Lonesome Dove and its sequel, Return to Lonesome Dove, helped Schroder's attempt to be recognised as a mature actor. Still, it came as a surprise to much of the public when he was chosen to act in the series NYPD Blue, notorious for its partial nude scenes.

Schroder only acted in NYPD Blue for three years. He commuted to the set of Strong Medicine, whose cast he joined for a two-year contract starting in 2005, and appeared in films even as he built a log cabin on his ranch. Schroder also appeared in several episodes of the second season of the comedy series Scrubs as nurse Paul Flowers.

In 2007, Schroder appeared as a recurring character on the hit FOX show 24 as CTU agent Mike Doyle.

In 2004, Schroder directed and starred in the music video for "Whiskey Lullaby", a song by Brad Paisley. This music video won an award.
