biography of Dreyfuss, Richard

Richard Stephen Dreyfus
29 October 1947, Brooklyn, New York City, New York, USA
5' 5"
American leading man who has played his fair share of irritating pests and brash, ambitious hustlers, Richard Dreyfuss worked his way up through bit parts (_The Graduate (1967)_ (qv), for one) and TV before gaining attention with his portrayal of Baby Face Nelson in 'John Milius' (qv)' _Dillinger (1973)_ (qv). He gained prominence as a college-bound young man in _American Graffiti (1973)_ (qv) and as a nervy Jewish kid with high hopes in _The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz (1974)_ (qv). By the latter part of the 1970s Dreyfuss was established as a major star, playing leads (and alter-egos) for 'Steven Spielberg' (qv) in two of the top-grossing films of the that decade: _Jaws (1975)_ (qv) and _Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977)_ (qv). He won a Best Actor Oscar in his first romantic lead as an out-of-work actor in _The Goodbye Girl (1977)_ (qv). Dreyfuss also produced and starred in the entertaining private eye movie _The Big Fix (1978)_ (qv). After a brief lull in the early 1980s, a well-publicized drug problem and a string of box-office disappointments (_The Competition (1980)_ (qv), _Whose Life Is It Anyway? (1981)_ (qv), _The Buddy System (1984)_ (qv)), a clean and sober Dreyfuss re-established himself in the mid-'80s as one of Hollywood's more engaging leads. He co-starred with 'Bette Midler' (qv) and 'Nick Nolte' (qv) in 'Paul Mazursky' (qv)'s popular _Down and Out in Beverly Hills (1986)_ (qv). That same year he provided the narration and appeared in the opening and closing "bookends" of 'Rob Reiner' (qv)'s nostalgic _Stand by Me (1986)_ (qv). He quickly followed that with _Nuts (1987)_ (qv) opposite 'Barbra Streisand' (qv), 'Barry Levinson (I)' (qv)'s _Tin Men (1987)_ (qv) in a memorable teaming with 'Danny DeVito' (qv) and _Stakeout (1987)_ (qv) with 'Emilio Estevez' (qv). Dreyfuss continued working steadily through the end of the 1980s and into the 1990s, most notably in Mazursky's farce _Moon Over Parador (1988)_ (qv), Spielberg's _Always (1989)_ (qv), _Postcards from the Edge (1990)_ (qv) and _Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead (1990)_ (qv). He appeared as a member of an ensemble that included 'Holly Hunter' (qv), 'Gena Rowlands' (qv) and 'Danny Aiello' (qv) in the romantic comedy _Once Around (1991)_ (qv) and as a pop psychiatrist, the author of several successful self-help books, who is driven to the edge by nutcase 'Bill Murray (I)' (qv) in the popular comedy _What About Bob? (1991)_ (qv). Dreyfuss has also remained active in the theater ("Death and Maiden", 1992) and on TV. He returned to features in the adaptation of 'Neil Simon (I)' (qv)'s play _Lost in Yonkers (1993)_ (qv) and followed with a supporting turn as the querulous political opponent in _The American President (1995)_ (qv). Dreyfuss received some of the best notices of his career as a determined, inspiring music teacher coping with a deaf son and the demands of his career in _Mr. Holland's Opus (1995)_ (qv).

Under the influence of drugs while driving, Dreyfuss knew the crash was his fault. Though he was the only one injured, in his recovery state he was moved by the image of a beautiful little girl in a white dress.

-   Had a serious drug problem in the late 70s and early 80s. One of the side effects was that his memory was damaged, so much so that he still has no memory of filming the movie, _Whose Life Is It Anyway? (1981)_ (qv).

-   In 2004, he announced his retirement from film acting, and that he would concentrate on theater. He implied that he decided upon this course due to a lack of recent work in film and that his greater passion was always theater.

-   During 2004-2005 he took a short break from acting to lecture at Oxford University.

In each sequel, his character is briefly mentioned as being away in a region with a cold climate... his "American Graffiti" character, "Curt", is in Canada and his "Jaws" character, "Hooper", is on an expedition in Alaska. In both sequels, most of the original cast has returned to reprise their roles. Also, each original film was directed by two groundbreaking filmmakers, 'George Lucas (I)' (qv) and 'Steven Spielberg' (qv) (both making their mark in the industry); and both sequels were directed by another director.

-   Because of memory loss problems, as a result of his drug addiction in the 70s and 80s, during the brief run of "Complicit" at the Old Vic in 2009, he controversially used an earpiece to enable the prompter to feed him his lines during performances. The play, co-starring 'Elizabeth McGovern (I)' (qv) and 'David Suchet' (qv), and directed by 'Kevin Spacey' (qv), was widely ridiculed in the British press as a result. Commenting on his many fluffed lines, the Daily Mail's theatre reviewer quipped, "We're going to need a bigger earpiece".

-   As preparation for acting the role in the movie of the same name, he played the lead in the stage version of Whose Life is it Anyway at the Williamstown Theatre Festival (Williamstown, MA) in the summer, 1981. John Badham directed both the summer stock stage version and the Hollywood movie. Blythe Danner played the female lead in the stage version, and was replaced by Christine Lahti in the film.

-   Total Abandon (1983). Written by Larry Atlas. Directed by Jack Hofsiss. Booth Theatre: 28 Apr 1983 (1 performance + 7 previews). Cast included 'Richard Dreyfuss' (qv) as "Lenny Keller".


-   In 1976: "People who commit adultery must die. Everyone knows that. Any movie tells you that!"

-   I really think that living is the process of going from complete certainty to complete ignorance.

-   Happiness has a bum rap. People say it shouldn't be your goal in life. Oh, yes it should.

-   Actually, when I was a kid I was really more aware of the star and the handprints in Grauman's Chinese more than I was aware of anything else, including the Oscar. I wanted to have a star. I wanted to be able to see, you know, old gum on my star.

-   "I don't think film acting is necessarily a triumph of technique. Film stardom is a friendship that happens between an audience and a performer. Its like you meet someone and you click with that person for whatever reason".

-   [on 'Bette Midler' (qv)] I loved working with Bette. I rarely get to have a good leading lady and Bette and 'Marsha Mason (I)' (qv) are the best. I'd work with them again anytime.

-   The motion picture business is run by corporate thieves.

-   I enjoyed the journey to the top but then found myself disappointed.

-   Behind all art is ego and I am an artist and I am unique.

-   [on 'Steven Spielberg' (qv)] Steven Spielberg is the only person I've come across who fits my criteria of genius. And I don't throw that word around. Genius is imagination and attention to detail. The ability to achieve to the minutest detail what you perceive in your imagination. I don't think there's another person on earth who's as great a plot structuralist or better storyteller.

-   [on 'James Stewart (I)' (qv)] You personify for me part of this nation. You symbolize an America that is gentle, ironic, self-deprecating, tough, and emotional.

-   (2009, on _The Day Reagan Was Shot (2001) (TV)_ (qv)) I thought I was miscast. He's a character I could empathize with. He's totally human. A physically bigger person should have played him, but it was fun, and it was especially fun because it was true, and it was a really well-written script in that way. But playing him... You know, every actor wants to play the villain. The trick is not to wink at the audience and say, "I'm not him".

-   (2009, on _What About Bob? (1991)_ (qv)) Funny movie. Terribly unpleasant experience. We didn't get along, me and 'Bill Murray (I)' (qv). But I've got to give it to him: I don't like him, but he makes me laugh, even now. I'm also jealous that he's a better golfer than I am.

-   (2009) _Jaws (1975)_ (qv), first time I saw it, I forgot I was in it. True. Totally forgot, and got as scared as everybody else, and it's a great movie. I learned a shitload about my whole life, and I watched Steven ['Steven Spielberg' (qv)] go from being a boy to being a man. He was under so much pressure you couldn't believe. And his shark never worked, so they had to re-conceive as they went, and it was because of that mind-fuck that he made a great film.

-   I always knew that I could be a star for this whole audience that didn't relate to 'John Wayne (I)' (qv) or 'Al Pacino' (qv). An urban, progressive, intellectually-oriented audience, not too macho, people who read, people who listen to 'Paul Simon (I)' (qv) and 'Randy Newman (I)' (qv). People like me.


-   (March 2004) Appearing on Broadway with 'Eric Stoltz' (qv) in 'Arthur Penn (I)' (qv)'s production of 'Larry Gelbart' (qv)'s "Sly Fox".

-   (November 2009) Keynote speaker at the Dedication Day ceremonies at the Gettysburg National Cemetery November 20, 2009.
