Hatch had learned to play piano already at the age of eight, and soon expressed an interest in becoming a performer. He attended Harbor College in San Pedro, Los Angeles and later joined the L.A. Repertory Theater, with which he traveled to New York City in 1967. During this time, he performed in various company’s productions, such as “Song of Walt Whitman”, “Young Rebels”, “Exercise” and “PS Your Cat is Dead”, winning an Obie Award for his performance in the last one. His net worth was already established.

Hatch made his television debut by starring as Phillip Brent in the 1970 soap opera “All My Children”, and went on to make guest appearances in several ’70s television series and films. In 1975 he starred as a Vietnam War veteran in the low-key film “Best Friends”, and the following year he gained his first major television role, playing police detective Dan Robbins in the series “The Streets of San Francisco”, replacing Michael Douglas. The same year he was cast in a recurring role in the satirical soap opera “Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman”. His net worth started to rise.

In 1978 Hatch took the starring role of a Viper pilot Captain Apollo in the original “Battlestar Galactica” sci-fi series. Although the show lasted only for a year, Hatch’s performance brought him a Golden Globe nomination and considerably contributed to his popularity and to his wealth as well.

During the ’80s, he made guest appearances in television series such as “Hotel”, “Murder, She Wrote”, “The Love Boat” and “Fantasy Island”, and appeared in several episodes of the popular series “Dynasty”. As for film roles, he appeared in “Charlie Chan and the Curse of the Dragon Queen” and starred in the low-budget “Prisoners of the Lost Universe”.

The ’90s saw Hatch continuing with television guest appearances, including in the soap opera “Santa Barbara”, and the series “Jake and the Fatman” and “Baywatch”. During this time, he began writing novels and comic books based on the “Battlestar Galactica” series. He also wrote, co-directed and executive-produced a trailer called “The Second Coming”, hoping that Universal Studios would produce it as a new series, a sequel to the original one. However, the studio refused Hatch’s offer, being more interested in a remake of “Battlestar Galactica” rather than a sequel, which left Hatch deeply disappointed. This, however, didn’t prevent the actor accepting the offer to join the cast of the new “Battlestar Galactica” series, playing a former terrorist turned politician Tom Zerek from 2004 to 2009, reinforcing his popularity and improving his net worth.

In the meantime, Hatch created his own space opera “The Great War of Magellan”. In 2008 he appeared as Eric Norris in the sci-fi film “InAlienable”, and then in 2011 he created a new reality television series called “Who the Frak?”, in which he also made guest appearances. Hatch was a part the Star Trek fan film projects, the 2014 “Prelude To Axanar” and the 2015 “Star Trek: Axanar”, portraying the character of Klingon Commander Kharn in both productions.

When it comes to his private life, Hatch has kept it away from public view. Therefore, there is no information known to the media whether he has been married or not.
