Ricky Schroder: From ‘Silver Spoons’ to scary sci-fi

Like other child stars, Ricky Schroder has made a mistake in his life. It just wasn’t the kind that would land him in rehab or on a police blotter.

The mistake, he confessed to TODAY’s Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, was changing his name from “Ricky” to “Rick” 18 years ago in an effort to sound more mature.

“When I turned 18, my agent was like, ‘You should change from Ricky to Rick.’ So I thought it was a good idea,” he said.

He stuck with it for the next 18 years, but with everyone he knew, including his wife and his mother, still calling him Ricky, Schroder finally gave up.
