Richard Dreyfuss has enjoyed a five-decade-long career and is known for his memorable roles in big projects like “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.” “Jaws,” and the 2021 movie “Crime Story.” He started acting at the age of nine and was working professionally going into his teens. “The Goodbye Girl” earned him the 1978 Best Actor Oscar making him the youngest at the time to boast of such an achievement.

Beyond the screen, he collaborated with Stephen Anderson, Kellie Cude, and Russ Porter on “The Dreyfuss Civics Curriculum: A National Model for Civics Education in Elementary and Secondary Schools.” He has long supported Civics education and championed its revival in schools to teach future generations about the principles of citizenship.
