Ricky Schroder is an American actor who began his career as a child actor in the movie The Champ. He is best known for his adult work on television shows like Lonesome Dove, NYPD Blue and Strong Medicine.

By the time Schroder was cast in The Champ at age eight, he had 60 TV commercials and hundreds of print ads under his belt. In 1979, he became one of the youngest actors to receive a Golden Globe for his performance opposite Jon Voight and Faye Dunaway in The Champ.

From age 12 to 17, Schroder starred on the hit TV series Silver Spoons. One year later, he was cast in the miniseries Lonesome Dove. The Western went on to garner seven Emmy Awards, a Peabody and two Golden Globes.

In 2004, Schroder made his feature film directorial debut with Black Cloud, a story inspired by a young Native American boxer. Schroder wrote and produced this picture too.

He also won the 2004 Country Music Association Best Music Video Award and the Country Music Television Director of the Year Award for his direction of Whiskey Lullaby, sung by Brad Paisley and Alison Krauss. The video was also named Video of the Year by the Academy of Country Music.
