She was pretty in DS9.
She looks like a mean grade school principal in Orville.

Michael Ensign, who played the devious Minister Krola in ST:TNG "First Contact" (and three other ST roles), played the sniffy hotel manager in Ghostbusters and doomed billionaire Benjamin Guggenheim in Titanic.

Search function wouldn't function, so I don't know if anyone mentioned Mark Lenard in "Annie Hall." Naval officer on TV program.

Peter Mark Richman, "Ralph Offenhouse" in TNG's "The Neutral Zone," was Reverend Snow, Chrissie's father, on Three's Company.

He was also on the short list of potential replacements for Leonard Nimoy when Leonard was holding out for more money between seasons 1 and 2 of TOS.

Carolyne Barry, aka Carole Shelyne, the Metron in "Arena," was in this episode of Love, American Style as "Joan." Whether she was the secretary or the waitress with the tray, I've never been able to determine. She could be either.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4h7o...lZZ70C&index=1

Barry also played an engineer in TNG's "Home Soil."

The waitress with the long blonde hair, BTW, is Connie Kreski, Playboy's PMoY for 1969.

Didn't read whole thread so this might've already been mentioned......In one of those Real Housewives shows (of Newark? Juarez?) I'm pretty sure one of them was played by a Mugato.

The Mugato, along with the Horta, the rock guy in the Lincoln episode and a couple creatures in "The Cage" were all brought to life by Janos Prohaska, one of the greatest suit actors of all time. Mr. Prohaska appeared in a bear or gorilla suit in numerous TV shows, but he branched out in The Outer Limits episode "The Probe" by enacting the role of an alien microbe.

The aforementioned Carole Shelyne was best known for dancing on the mid-'60s TV show Shindig as "The Girl with the Horn Rim Glasses" and even recorded a hit song:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fRsrhK_zcgY

She also appears in Out of Sight (1967) along with Maggie Thrett (one of Mudd's women).

If anybody remembers the old Andy Williams show, Prohaska played a talking bear who would keep ringing Andy's doorbell and beg for cookies, to the point where Andy would explode in a fit of temper.

"NO! I'm not going to give you a cookie! Not now! Not ever! NEVER!!!"

Sally Kellerman was in a 1963 episode of "My Three Sons" titled "Steve and the Viking" Steve Douglas (Fred MacMurray) gets roped into escorting the daughter of a Danish couple who have an account with Steve's company. Steve's qualification is that he is 6'2"-6'3" and the daughter (Kellerman) is 6'2". She proves to very athltic (no, not in bed) with hiking, tennis and saunas so much that Steve, who is about 45 (his sons are 20, 17 and 10) is physically worn out. He turns down an invitation to a costume ball for her, which turns out to be 17. So he suggests that his 17 year old Don escort her. At the time Kellerman was 26, which shows you that "Beverly Hills 90210" and "Gilmore Girls" didn't invent the practice of women in their late 20s playing high school girls.

George Takei was in a 1963 episode of "The Gallant Men", a one season show about GIs in Italy in World War II (it didn't help that "Combat!" debuted the same year on the same network). The episode "One Puka Puka" deals with the regular army hard bitten sergeant (Richard X Slattery) ending up in the largely Nisei 100th infantry battalion (puka is Hawaiian for hole) and with prewar service in Hawaii, Slattery thinks Hawaiian natives are a bit crazy. Takei is one of the soldiers under the command of a Nisei lieutenant named O'Hara who is unorthodox, always talking about comic books and kind of enjoys Slattery's discomfort. But Lt O'Hara's tactics work (they capture a German tank) and when Slattery's unit catches up, his captain finds Slattery happily dancing to Hawaiian music on a tabletop.

I absolutely loved that show! The only thing it didn't have going for it was its Saturday evening time slot (on opposite Jackie Gleason, I think); Combat! was on Tuesday evenings, and was followed by McHale's Navy.

One of my friends that I played Army with back then was a dead ringer for Pvt D'Angelo, and he had a younger brother who was the spitting image of Charles Bronson.

At that point, weren't the sons Mike, Rob, and Chip, in that order? (Ernie was adopted later, after Mike had left and Chip was too big to be considered "cute" any longer.)

Yeah, he must have been thinking of Rob, who was played by Don Grady.

I may have mentioned this before (here or elsewhere), but Clint Howard ("Balok") was also a regular on this show when he was about four years old:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Baileys_of_Balboa

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFHuJxhP538

In the one episode I watched when I was in fourth grade, Clint was catching more fish than anyone else in the marina, and nobody could figure out why. Turned out he was using peanut butter sandwiches as bait.

As an aside, it's interesting that John Dehner was "The Commodore" in that series. He'd also play a "Commodore" in the episode of Columbo where Robert Vaughn was not the murderer:

Yep, that's it. Rob was played by Don Grady, who later composed the theme song for the Phil Donohue show (and is the only child actor on the show who died, unless you count Meredith McRae who played Sally, Mike's wife).

Of course when they first introduced Ernie, he is a classmate of Chip. Later when he is adopted, he becomes a few years younger.

I remember seeing Louise Sorel ("Rayna" in "Requiem for Methuselah") in a rerun of Rat Patrol many years ago. Looking at her filmography, I see she's gotten around a lot over the years:

Fun Fact: Pat Buttram was offered his choice of roles on Green Acres, and he chose that of Mr Haney (the huckster) hands down.

Saw an episode of "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" called "Memo from Purgatory " which has Walter Koenig and James Caan. Based on an autobiographical story by Harlan Ellison. I suppose if you want another "actors with bad career decisions " also has Tony Musante, who a decade later refused to have "Toma" last as a regular series (he wanted a series of tv movies like "Columbo"). The show was revamped as "Baretta" starring Robert Blake, who made a far worse career decision years later.

As noted in an earlier post (*ahem*) she was the town floozy in HPD, and Billy Curtis (seen briefly in "Journey to Babel") was the town dwarf.

Takei is also in an episode as the owner of a restaurant. Not Chinese food, but fried chicken and other Southern food. About once a year on "My Three Sons" there was an episode with one of Steve's fellow engineers played by James Hong ("number three son in several Charlie Chan movies). They go a little heavy with the "honorable grandfather" type sayings. Takei is a 28 year old man expecting to marry Hong's 17 year old cousin from Hong Kong whose previous 60 year old chosen-by-her-parents" fiance has died. Robbie gets the job of turning a shy, submissive girl into an American which she does causing Takei to say "I was expecting a Chinese Mona Lisa, not a bopper".

Before becoming an actress in things like "Assignment Earth" Teri Garr was a dance in nine Elvis Presley movies and tv music shows like Shindig, Hullabaloo and Movin' with Nancy Sinatra.

MeTV has finally gotten to the controversial 6th (and final) season of "77 Sunset Strip". Facing declining ratings, Jack Webb was hired and he completely revamped the show. Turning an often lighthearted dtetective show into a film noirish and getting rid of every character except Efrem Zimbalist Jr, whose character changes. Not content with that, but in an era where few shows were two parters (and only "Lassie" ever had a three parter), Webb opened the season with a five part episode where William Shatner is one of a cast of thousands.
I will wait till all are broadcast before watching but I have to say the stand alone episode "White Lie" starring Elizabeth Montgomery as a biracial woman hiding this fact in wealthy Connecticut was quite good. But that may be due to Montgomery.

Jesus Christ. Surely you jest. I read that the show tanked when Kookie became a fellow PI instead of a beatnik and young ladies stopped watching.

They go a little heavy with the "honorable grandfather" type sayings.
Takei was also "Akira" at the Happy Sumo Restaurant in the Simpsons episode "One Fish, Two Fish, Blow Fish, Blue Fish." He was the guy who almost poisoned Homer with fugu.

Just watched an old episode of Barney Miller ("Hash") and I recognized one of the police officers as "Officer Kirk" from "Happy Days" - but when I looked him up to confirm, I saw he was also "Colonel Fellini" who captured Kirk in "Tomorrow is Yesterday."

Riverboat, the Darren McGavin 1959 TV series. Ken Lynch, the mining engineer from Devil in the Dark, plays a crook who has taken over Hampton, Mississippi.

Janos Prohaska played the horta in Devil In the Dark, the "Anthropoid Ape" in The Cage, the Mogato in A Private Little War and the rock thing in Savage Curtain. I just watched him play a killer chimp in Riverboat, Do No Evil. He also played a hornless mugato in a Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea episode.
This guy specialized in wearing ape suits.

Corey really got around in Sixties Westerns; he was in True Grit, Little Big Man and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

The 1995 sci-fi flick "Dgital Man" features Ken Olandt, who played Picards ersatz son. Also, Ed Lauter, who played the father of the boy killed when Wesley and co did that risky stunt in "The First Duty". But draws the prize for a pre DS9 Chase Masterson, who briefly displays her, er, attributes. (It was the highlight of the film, in case you're wondering.)

Just spotted a very young Ricardo Montalban in the WWII action movie Battleground (1949): http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/2...Image17.19.jpg

Amazingly, I don't think it's been mentioned that Warren Stevens played both Rojan in "By Any Other Name" and Lt "Doc" Ostrow in Forbidden Planet. He was that picture's "Dr McCoy" to Leslie Nielsen's "Captain Kirk" (JJ Adams).

Looking at the movie's cast list, I see other Trek alumni were featured as well:

One of my favorite films, and suggested by some to be "the first Star Trek episode".

It was definitely one of Roddenberry's inspirations for Star Trek. If you didn't already know, you might have trouble guessing which came first, Forbidden Planet or "The Cage."
