2007 General Auction to run from March 4th - 10th*** The Auction will

The RBFC's first auction of 2007 features a selection of autographed

As with previous auctions, this one will be run manually by the RBFC,
with bids being placed by email using links set up in the Auction
A Yahoogroups list has also been established to allow bidders to better
keep tabs on the hig-bid status of various items. Subscription

This auction is a departure for the RBFC in that the proceeds will go
primarily towards defraying the Club's operating expenses. Hopefully the
need for such "housekeeping" auctions will arise only rarely.

||[03 Mar 07] *** Richard's three
back-to-back episodes of NBC's "Las Vegas" now airing*** -- Richard
hit the ground running in 2007 with three back-to-back episodes of "Las
Vegas," starting work on the first the week of January 8th.
Richard appears in "Bare Chested In The Park" (415), "Junk In The
Trunk" (416), and "Heroes" (417), playing a New York hedge-fund billionaire
and high-stakes gambler named Vince Peterson.
"Bare Chested In The Park" aired on February 23rd; "Junk In The Trunk"
aired on March 2nd, with "Heroes," the season finale, airing on March 9th.
With the show renewed for a fifth season, it's possible -- depending on
the outcome of "Heroes" -- that Vince Peterson will be back in next season's
NBC's show page gives the description of "Las Vegas" excerpted below:
From Gary Scott Thompson -- the writer of the hit film “The Fast and
the Furious” -- comes “Las Vegas,” now entering its third season. This
fast-paced, sexy drama follows the elite Las Vegas surveillance team charged
with maintaining the security of one of “Sin City’s” largest resorts and
Oscar and Golden Globe Award nominee James Caan (“The Godfather,” “Misery”)
stars as Ed Deline, the head of the surveillance team for the Montecito
Resort & Casino. With his protégé, Danny McCoy (Josh
Duhamel, “All My Children”) a former U.S. Marine and Las Vegas native,
they deal with card-counting cheaters, costly streaks of random luck and
rival casinos stealing their big-money players.

||[03 Mar 07] *** Richard Burgi
dives into the horror genre with a part in Eli Roth's "Hostel: Part II"***
Richard finished his work in Prague, Czech Republic in late October on
the much-anticipated sequel to writer-director
Eli Roth's horror
blockbuster, "Hostel." The movie is now in post-production
with a June 8th 2007 premiere date.
Eli Roth gave MTV.com some teasing details on "Hostel: Part II,"
including (we assume) an idea of how Richard's character Todd Rogers
and his buddy
Stuart (Roger Bart) McGenty fit into the overall story.
"The film is also following two guys who go through this experience
to kill somebody. And we know them really well, and they are very, very
likeable and they're very normal. It seems like there's nothing psycho
about them, except they are looking for some excitement in their life because
they are bored. ... That's going to be a parallel story. We see it
from the girl's perspective and we see it from the client's perspective.
We inter-cut both stories until they all meet in this horrible place. So,
we're going to learn everything about the organization, all the minutiae

[03 Mar 07] *** Praise him, praise him
*** -- Though Richard -- and Karl -- will apparently not be as prominent
in the Fall 2006 season of Desperate Housewives as in Season
2, this is still a good time to contact The Powers That Be at ABC
and Desperate Housewives to let them know how much you enjoyed Richard's
work with Karl last season, and how much you look forward to seeing him
continue putting Karl through his paces now that Season 3 is in production.
Richard joined the full-time cast of Desperate Housewives in July
2005 and appeared in 15 of the 2005/06 season's 24 episodes as Karl
Mayer, Susan (Teri Hatcher) Mayer's ex-husband. Described by one TV
Guide correspondent as a "lovable doofus," Karl continued to moon
over Susan while stringing live-in girlfriend Edie (Nicollette Sheridan)
along and working as Bree's (Marcia Cross) lawyer. Richard has earned
repeated kudos from reviewers and columnists for his "impeccable comic
timing" as he's put Karl through his paces. While Karl will be back
to further bedevil Susan in the Fall 2006 season, the number and timing
of his appearances is uncertain..
Quick notes to ABC and the producers of Desperate Housewives are a good
way to remind them that you are watching and enjoying Richard's work on
their network and show. Let them know how much you're enjoying seeing Richard
putting Karl through his paces! Include a bit of demographic information
if you feel so inclined.
The ABC network can be contacted through the ABC website, where
an email "comment" option is provided:
