Richard Norman Anderson (born August 8, 1926) is an American film and television actor. Among his best-known roles is his portrayal of Oscar Goldman, the boss of Steve Austin (Lee Majors) and Jaime Sommers (Lindsay Wagner) in both The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman television series between 1974 and 1978 and their subsequent television movies: The Return of the Six-Million-Dollar Man and the Bionic Woman (1987), Bionic Showdown: The Six Million Dollar Man and the Bionic Woman (1989) and Bionic Ever After? (1994).


Ses parents déménagent pour Los Angeles quand Richard Anderson a 10 ans. Au retour de la guerre, il étudie au célèbre American Lab à Hollywood. En 1947, il a déjà joué dans plusieurs pièces de théâtre. En 1949, il signe un contrat de six ans avec la MGM, durant lequel il jouera dans 26 films.

Remarqué dans le rôle de Ricardo del Amo dans la série télévisée Zorro de Walt Disney, il décrochera le rôle récurrent du lieutenant Steve Drumm dans Perry Mason et enchaînera en jouant le beau-frère du docteur Kimble dans la série Le Fugitif. Il obtiendra, en 1973, le rôle qui le rendra mondialement célèbre : celui d'Oscar Goldman dans les séries L'Homme qui valait trois milliards et Super Jaimie. Les deux séries sont cousines, en ce sens qu'elles traitent du même sujet (un être humain bionique), et Richard Anderson y tient le même rôle. À cette occasion, la société Mattel éditera une poupée à son effigie. Très demandé à la télévision, où il devient un visage familier dans le monde entier, il multiplie également les rôles dans divers épisodes de séries souvent devenues cultes, telles Columbo. Drôles de Dames, L'Homme qui tombe à pic, K 2000, La croisière s'amuse, L'Agence tous risques, Les Mystères de l'ouest, L'ïle fantastique, Les Envahisseurs, Cannon, Des agents très spéciaux, Hawaï police d'état, Mannix, Bonanza, Le Frelon vert, Arabesque, Dynastie, Les Rues de San Francisco, etc.

Il était doublé en français principalement par l'acteur Jacques Deschamps.

Il s'éteint le 31 août 2017 à l'âge de 91 ans.

A successful mentalist, Arthur Sinclair (Hal Holbrook), preys upon wealthy socialites such as Helen Carrington (Eve McVeagh) for their money. The film opens as Sinclair is talking on the phone with his much younger wife Allison (Katharine Ross). She wishes him luck as he departs to give an interview. But she is in fact in bed with another man Gil (Barry Bostwick). Gil is a trying actor in love with Allison and we soon learn that she is planning to have Gil kill Arthur by scaring him to death (as he has a heart problem). Their plan is to have Gil storm the house pretending to be a burglar and then point a gun at Arthur who would die from the shock. The night comes and Gil storms the house but Arthur sees him before he can reach the gun. Gil presents himself as a journalist there to make an interview with Arthur. He and Gil have a hearty conversation and it turns out that both men have something on each other. Gil knows that Arthur is a fake and that he somehow knew the information about a killer in a different town and Arthur knows that Gil is not a journalist. Gil is not panicked by that and he uses Arthur's competitive behavior to make him do 50 push-ups which tires Arthur's heart. Soon Gil draws the gun, the two men struggle, and Arthur apparently shoots Gil. When Allison comes home, he is distraught by the incident; then Gil (who loaded a blank bullet into the gun) comes behind him, and Arthur stumbles across the house and screams in pain ... then laughs and applauds as the two lovers look on. He knew about Gil and Allison for a long time and now he is out to get them, but suddenly Arthur's lawyer and best friend George (Richard Anderson) comes in the house and it turns out that he is Allison's real lover and Gil was just there to do the dirty work. George shoots Arthur, then he and Allison depart. Some time afterwords Allison returns to the house and finds Arthur's body gone. It turns out that Arthur knew about George too. Arthur points the gun at Allison and she asks him what is he going to do to which he replies: "Why don't you read my mind".
