About Richard Schull

Richard Schull (24 February 1929--14 October 1999) was a character actor in film and television for many years. With his jowly look and somewhat raspy voice, he made a good curmudgeonly kind of character. He had a silent part as the judge in the courtroom scene of Billy Joel's 1983 music video of the song Keeping the Faith. He did a memorable and often-played commercial spot for United Airlines, as a constantly-griping customer, whose every complaint is deftly solved by the flight attendant, and who surprisingly tells her on arrival that he had 'a very nice flight!' He played the doctor/scientist in the movie Splash. He played the private detective in Spring Break 1983, currently on Hulu. Originally from Evanston Illinois, he moved to NYC.
