Profile Bio Text
Adam Rich is best remembered for his role as the youngest son, Nicholas Bradford, on the television series Eight is Enough, which ran for 5 seasons from 1977-1981. . After leaving that show, he did guest appearances on The Love Boat, CHiPs, Fantasy Island and The Six Million Dollar Man, St. Elsewhere and Baywatch. He had a role in the short-lived Irwin Allen`s short-lived, final TV series, Code Red. He did voice-over work on the cartoon series Dungeons & Dragons (TV series), along with Eight is Enough co-star Willie Aames.
In a 1996 spoof article, written with Rich`s participation, Might Magazine published a story reporting Rich`s purported death during a robbery by an "unemployed dinner theater stagehand." The "story" was an elaborate, and meticulously reconstructed time-line of the final years of Rich`s life, including his work on an uncompleted independent film known as The Squatter Project, constructed by a friend of Rich`s who worked for the magazine. The issue was intended as a satire of so-called "death issues" published by magazines such as People, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, and others, when popular celebrities have passed away. This event is chronicled in Dave Eggers`s A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, with semi-factual explanation of the events and exposition on the significance behind such an event. Eggers was a founder of Might Magazine.
Rich`s adult life has been troubled by substance abuse and numerous arrests for drug offenses, shoplifting, and breaking-and-entering.. In 1991, he was arrested for smashing a pharmacy window in an attempt to steal narcotics. He was bailed out of jail by his Eight is Enough "Dad" Dick Van Patten. He was re-arrested for shoplifting very shortly after being bailed out. He eventually plead no contest to both charges. On 20 February 2003, he was arrested for driving while impaired when he nearly collided with a police car on a closed stretch of Interstate 10 in the Los Angeles area.
