Richard is a recovering heroin addict who spends every day struggling to stay clean.

Lennie James may not be a household name (yet) here in the USA, but the man stays employed, both here in the USA, and in the UK.

His many acclaimed TV credits include Jericho, Lie To Me, The Walking Dead and several others. 

He's also an award-winning theatre veteran.

Talking about the character he plays in the Channel 4 series, run, Lennie  James had this to say:

"Richard's a man who's having a bad day. Small incidents have huge ramifications on this man's life over a short space of time, and that's what I love about it. It's an epic story told through small events. It's lovely to play, and it's the kind of thing I like to play because it's a lot about what's going on, on the inside."

Here's a preview of the episode:
