Schultz was born in Baltimore, Maryland. He is a graduate of Calvert Hall College High School and an alumnus of Towson University, both located in Towson, Maryland.
Schultz' breakthrough role was the mentally unstable Captain "Howling Mad" Murdock on The A-Team. At the series outset, the producers felt that his character would be too over-the-top for viewers and planned to drop him after his debut, but early test screenings showed that he was popular with the audience. As a result, he was effectively "written back in" to the series.
Schultz has also appeared in films including The Fan (1981), as Broadway Actress Lauren Bacall's director, and Fat Man and Little Boy (1989), as J. Robert Oppenheimer.
In the early 1990s, he had a recurring role as Lieutenant Reginald Barclay in Star Trek: The Next Generation. Schultz reprised the role for Star Trek: Voyager and the film Star Trek: First Contact.
He also is the host of a conservative talk radio podcast called Howling Mad Radio, which took a short hiatus until March 2009. Schultz has also guest hosted for Michael Savage on The Savage Nation' and Rusty Humphries on The Rusty Humphries Show on numerous occasions.
