He was in the first episode of the revived Mission: Impossible (filmed in Australia) back in the '80s. They were forced to recycle old scripts because of a writers' strike, so he played the role of the hitman that Robert Conrad had in the original M:I.

Robert Picardo (the EMH on Voyager) has bit part in "Back To School" (he plays one of the guys Rodney Dangerfield's wife is cheating with) - that movie also features Terry Farrell (of DS9 of course) in a major role. Picardo is also the deadly hitman in "Innerspace" which is in retrospect, hilarious.

The film version of To Kill a Mockingbird features four future Star Trek actors.

The two most obvious:

Brock Peters (Joseph Sisko, Ben's father, from DS9) plays Tom Robinson, the defendant.

William Windom (Commodore Decker from the "Doomsday Machine" episode of TOS--the only man ever to give Shatner a run for his money in the scenery-chewing department) plays Mr. Gilmer, the prosecutor.

Less obvious:

Paul Fix (Dr. Piper from the second TOS pilot, "Where No Man Has Gone Before") plays Judge Taylor.

And John Megna (the weirdest looking of all the kids in "Miri") plays Dill.

Antoinette Bower (Sylvia, "Catspaw") was in a Charles Bronson movie, "The Evil That Men Do."

The first thing I saw Shatner in post-Trek was a TVM of "Hound of the Baskervilles," where

I remember him as the sheriff in the "cursed/haunted house" (Halloween?) episode of CSI: NY.

She's also the nagging wife whom Dick Van Dyke shoots and fakes a kidnapping for in his Columbo episode.

She was the "older-but-still-hot woman" in an episode of Dream On in the '90s. And, of course, the original Margaret "Hot Lips" Houlihan in the movie M*A*S*H (1970).

"Miri," was in a "Streets of San Francisco," episode as the dead victim with Karl Malden and a young Michael Douglas. And she got good screen time in flashbacks, rather than just lying there. Kim something?

Mentioned in some other thread around here somewhere: Percy (Portmaster Stone "Court Martial") Rodrigues was in a (horrible) short film--spoofed by the Rifftrax folks--called "David and Hazel: A Story in Communication."

Kim Darby, man. The gremlins dragged her off in the TVM, "Don't be Afraid of the Dark."

In Bill Murray's "Scroogled" two homeless men are played by the guy who played "Jahn" in "Miri" (bonk bonk on the head) and a Roman in "Bread and Circuses" (that guy was also in MASH as a corrupt officer).

There are. A quick look at IMDB turns up Julie Parrish ("Miss Piper"), Malachi Throne ("Commodore Mendez"), Michael Ansara and Susan Howard ("Kang and Mara"), Bibi Besch ("Dr Marcus"), Sandra Smith (batshit-crazy "Dr Lester"), Richard Herd ("Admiral Paris"), Rene Auberjonois ("Odo"), Kate Woodville ("Natira"), Sharon Acker ("Odonna"), John Anderson ("Kevin Uxbridge" in "The Survivors" on TNG), Paul Carr ("Lt Kelso"), Charles Napier (space hippie "Adam"). And that's only about halfway down the list!

Lately he is on the Board of Directors of the Planetary Society and is involved in much of their media output like podcasts with Bill Nye.

I saw Robert Picardo mentioned... I remember him as Mr. Cutlip the gym teacher on "The Wonder Years".

Also from Voyager, Robert Beltran was Raoul in the movie "Eating Raoul".

Michael Strong ("Dr Roger Corby" in "What Are Little Girls Made Of?") and William Smithers ("Merricus" in "Bread and Circuses") were in "The Emerald" on Mission: Impossible. Strong was a Russian agent ("Petrozhian") who (made up like Rollin Hand) was whacked by his own bodyguard.

She was also Sam's girlfriend in three episodes of Cheers!, and of course the star of Mrs. Columbo, later known as Kate Columbo, followed by Kate the Detective, and then ultimately Kate Loves a Mystery. Holy crap!

He was a bit of a late 60s early 70s icon. "Low Spark of High Heeled Boys" was an inscription he wrote in Jim Capaldi's book which later became the title and basis of the song by Traffic. I suspect certain substances were involved.

The incubator episode. The Mash episode that sums up the Army's logistics. Every time I dealt with supply I would remember the line one of the other guests stars said. Hawkeyes finds a supply officer who has three incubators. When he asks why he can't have one the other officer says "But then I'd only have two!" Yep that sums it up.

For my money, it's even more hilarious in retrospect that he's delivering unhelpful exposition while driving Ah-nuld around in that cab in TOTAL RECALL.

Incidentally, the first thing I remember seeing John de Lancie in was the '80s revival of TWILIGHT ZONE, where he's in a memorable episode with Brent Spiner. (Well, it was memorable to me, anyhow; one line stunned ten-year-old me for the win.)

Quite a few in Gene Roddenberry's series about a USMC officer "The Lieutenant" starring Gary Lockwood "TOS Where No Man Has Gone Before). Most notably Leonard Nimoy as a flamboyant Hollywood producer and Majel Barrett as his level headed assistant. Don Marshall and Nicelle Nichols in an episode dealing with racism "To Set it Right"

William Shatner was in a two part "Ironside" that served as a backdoor pilot to the short lived "Amy Prentiss" series. Also as a prosecutor in "The Andersonville Trial" about the commander of the Confederate POW camp with Richard Basehart as Wirtz.

Joseph Mell pops up everywhere in bit parts in the 1960s and 1970s. He played the Uncle-Fester-looking trader in "The Cage"/"The Menagerie".

(In my memory, I always see Tony Roberts' face as the other guy in that scene, actually played by Robert Phillips--who is apparently still alive and kickin' at 92!)

Actually, Charles Rocket played the asshole millionaire.

"True Grit" has already been mentioned due to Kim Darby, but Alfred Ryder, Jeff Corey, and John Fiedler were in it as well.

The live action Spiderman series was a treasure trove for Trek actors. Rosalind Chao was in an episode and What's his first name Smithers and Andy Robinson were in an episode together. (Merrick and Garak.)

And no one has mentioned James Doohan (sans accent) as a cop in Pretty Maids All In A Row produced and scripted by Gene Roddenberry. The film also features Trelane (William Campbell).

William Marshall was one of several actors to portray the King of Cartoons on Pee-wee's Playhouse.

Angelique Pettyjohn made several porn films.

One of the cloud miners on Stratos is Fred "the Hammer" Williamson, a former pro football great who has a long and prolific career in exploitation movies, incl. Three the Hard Way and From Dusk Till Dawn.

You can look all these up on IMDB, but that's cheating.

Shatner was, besides the mentioned Outer Limits and Twilight Zone episodes, also in Alfred Hitchcock. I think he was in more than one, but one of them was The Glass Eye , another of the many stories in which the ventriloquist's "dummy" was actually the ventriloquist.

He was also in the 1970 TV movie Sole Survivor, which very Twilight Zone-esque.


I was startled to see Nimoy in the outer Limits episode I, Robot. When they remade the episode for the 1980's incarnation of the show, he was in that, too (in a different role). His son directed.


The weirdest one was deforest Kelley in a TV show from 1950, The Little Theater episode "The Bitter End", about a man trying to commit suicide. I didn't realize it was him -- this younger version of him lacks the characteristic eye-bags -- until he said the final line "Well, whaddaya know -- I couldn't do it!" in exactly the same way he said "Well whaddaya know -- I finally got the Last Word" on that episode of Star Trek.

I saw this on a VHS compilation called TV Turkeys, which claimed the show was called :"Suicide Theater", which I find hard to believe.

LeVar Burton (minus visor) was helping to construct the Statue of Liberty and fell to his death in the TVM "Liberty."

(I had a tiny, tiny part in it [read: extra], but didn't get to meet him.)

He was already quite famous for playing Chekov by that time. I've been trying to stick with Trek actors' previous roles from when they were less well-known, or in a "blink and you'll miss it" type of cameo. Such as Walter Koenig on Columbo. That's why I wouldn't count Bester, or Terry Farrell playing Reggie in Becker, for example. Or even Jonathan Frakes on Lois and Clark. Even Kate Mulgrew had been a familiar face on TV before becoming Capt. Janeway.
