Richard P. Halke
Writer on Step by Step
A weird sidenote to Mr. Halke's work on the hit ABC friday night sitcom, Step By Step is that it resulted in a character being named in his honor. The character of 'Rich Halke', played brilliantly by Jason Marsden, was added by ABC in the 5th season as a sidekick to Brandon Call's character of J.T. Lambert and later the steady boyfriend of J.T.'s arch-enemy and step-sister Dana Foster.
