Ulrich "Rick" Fox (born July 24, 1969 in Toronto, Canada), is a former professional basketball player, film and television actor, and eSports franchise owner.

One of Fox's early acting performances came in the form of an instructional basketball video developed by the Canadian production company, Rocco's Jobbers, in 1994. In it, Fox taught how to perform the backdoor as well as other finesse moves. Part of the proceeds were donated to local charities that supported the research of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), with which Fox himself had been recently diagnosed.
