Another familiar face joins the ECHOES cast. Maderfilm has enlisted longtime collaborator Lou Richards to play Dr. Lichte in our newest film ECHOES. You may also recognize Lou as Cassie’s father Charles Sinclair in our award-winning feature DISPLACEMENT, or as Jared Cain in our TV Pilot A.L.L.I.A.N.C.E.
As a student at Texas Tech University, Lou got involved in college radio at KTXT. His first commercial job was doing the all night shift at KLBK in Lubbock, Texas. He went on to be a DJ at KKUA in Honolulu and landed a few small roles in “Hawaii Five-0”. That’s when the acting bug took over and he moved to Los Angeles to “pursue the dream”.
Of all his television roles, he claims his favorite was working on “Gloria”, the sitcom spin-off of “All in the Family”. Says Lou, “I was being paid to show up everyday and be silly. It doesn’t get much better than that”. From his cartoon voice work he says he enjoyed working most of all with Frank Welker.
We love Lou and are always intrigued by the interesting choices he makes as an actor. We can’t wait to see what he does with Dr. Lichte.
