Michael Ansara was all over the place. He was TV's answer to Yul Brynner and Anthony Quinn -- the All-Purpose Ethnic. He played American Indians, Middle Eastern-types, Russians, Aliens, and what-have-you. He was Qarlo Kobrigny, the Soldier from the Future in the Harlan Ellison-scripted Outer Limits episode Soldier.

In addition to appearing a couple of times on I Dream of Jeanie (and being married to Barbara Eden), he also directed at least one episode.

He also played The Mummy (or, at least a Mummy) in Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy, a movie that also featured a pre-Dick Van Dyke Show Richard Deacon.
