Decades ago, I saw young James Doohan (with fake Scottish accent) on the sitcom "Hazel."

Did James Doohan do anything post Trek besides play Scotty on a STNG episode, and the comic role where he satirized Scotty?

He worked pretty steadily up until his health went south. There's a lot of Trek and Trek parody in there, but plenty of work, even aside from that.

Hilariously, one of his characters was named Chief O'Brien.

That's good, I heard or read him say that he would go in for casting, a secretary would say, "Hello, Scotty!" and he would be shown the door.

I was trying to go from memory. Should have remembered Sandra Smith, though. Saw her on Rockford and had one of those "where have I seen her before" moments. I think that and Trek are the only two times I've seen her in anything.

But as I said, everybody was in everything back then.

Sandra Smith was in Naked City at 18. I thought I'd watched all of them.

This is fun! In the late '60s and early '70s, I used to drive my mother crazy by saying "Hey, he/she was on Star Trek!" whenever I watched television. And yes, I'm going by memory. I only resorted to IMBD to get some background information.

George Takei was in a first-season episode of Mission: Impossible as a bacteriologist/biochemist. The IMF infiltrated a school for spies in order to prevent a biological attack on the United States (George was one of the good guys).

Is there a way to search IMDb for actors who appeared in two different franchises, or at least two different series? Two of the biggest franchises in TV history (perhaps the two biggest) are Star Trek and Law & Order, but off the top of my head I can only think of two actors that were in both.

SPOILER:
Carolyn McCormick and Billy Campbell.
There have to be more.

Before she was Ilia in ST:TMP, Persis Khambatta was in this movie opposite Michael Caine and Sidney Poitier:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0073901/

Looking over her career at Memory Alpha, I see she was in lots of other productions with Trek alumni:

You could copy their cast lists and run them through the Compare function in Microsoft Word. (That might actually work!) Otherwise, I guess you'd just have to scroll through them name by name, or use the IMBD Search function if you already have a name.

In that same episode, I believe, they're walking down a corridor in the underground lab and it's an Enterprise corridor. (ST and M:I both filmed by Paramount.)

She also showed everything in a movie titled The Wicked Lady (1983). I've yet to see this, but I do have some stills from it. And yes, her physical attributes are delightful!

I thought Richard Herd seemed familiar. I've been watching this cop show with some other Star Trek actor whose name escapes me at the moment . He played Captain Sheridan.

Michael Ansara, of course, was married to Barbara Eden and appeared on I Dream of Jeannie as the blue djinn.

Kate Woodville was in another early episode of Mission: Impossible. Unusually, she was whacked by the bad guys around the first station break.

She was also in "Hot Snow," the very first episode of The Avengers in 1961. She played the fiancee of Dr David Keel (Ian Hendry) and was murdered by drug smugglers, setting up the scenario for Keel's collaboration with the mysterious John Steed (Patrick MacNee) and the series' title.

Another Fun Fact: She was married to MacNee for four years (1965--69). I had forgotten that!

Also in Total Recall is Gul Dukat!

Andrew "Garak" Robinson was the killer in the first "Dirty Harry" movie. Even under all that Kardashian make-up (), he has the same insane eyes.

I just turned on an old episode of Law & Order and not a minute later there was Bibi Besch. But she was only in a Trek movie, so still not quite what I'm looking for.

Checked her page on IMDb; didn't realize she had died so young.

Oh, there's one; Garak on Deep Space Nine and the third season Law & Order episode "Consultation".

Robinson also played JFK in an episode of the eighties Twilight Zone revival series. Pretty sure Mark Alaimo did an episode of Quantum Leap.

I mentioned this in another thread awhile back, but there is an early Rockford Files episode where he is driving through the desert and a semi tried to run him off the road. He stops at a gas station to call the police on the pay phone, and the gas station attendant is Marc Alaimo. I'm not sure I would have even recognized him if I hadn't seen his name in the credits.

I spotted Barry Russo ("Lt Cdr Giotto," "Commodore Wesley") as a two-bit gangster in an episode of The Untouchables, another Desilu production. He was being grilled by Robert Stack as Eliot Ness, who wanted him to fink on his boss:

"You don't care about my skin!"

"That's right, punk. I care more about the skin on a sausage."

I saw an ep of "Mannix" recently that had both *Paul Carr ("Lt. Kelso" from "Where No Man Has Gone Before") and Roger Perry ("Capt. Christopher" from "Tomorrow Is Yesterday.")

*Interesting looking at Paul Carr's filmography that he did some voice credits under the name Lee Kelso.

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.

I never made the connection: Roger Perry played a different character in each of the two "Count Yorga (vampire)" films. OMG, he was married to Jo Anne "Laugh-in" Worley, and is now married to Joyce Bulifant.

Lee Meriwether ("Losira" in "That Which Survives") turned up as a perky suburban housewife in an episode of Leave It to Beaver. I used to love watching her in Time Tunnel when I was in sixth grade. She was so damned hot in those knee-length skirts and white lab coats! Of course, she was also The Catwoman in the 1966 movie Batman.

Leslie Parrish ("Lt Palomas" in "Who Mourns for Adonais?") was in an episode of Batman as a ditzy beauty queen who was kidnapped by The Penguin. She wore skin-tight gold lame slacks, grrrrrr!

It'd be interesting to do a Star Trek--Batman crossover study. Right offhand, I can think of Frank Gorshin, Sherry Jackson, Nancy Kovacs (The Mad Hatter's moll), and Julie Newmar (the original Catwoman).

I've noticed this time around that TZ went rapidly downhill after Season 2. What got me in "Probe 7" (aside from the horrible production values) was Basehart's use of "galaxy" instead of "solar system." Seems to me that by this time, Rod & Co. were just phoning it in.

I'm not familiar with the seasons. I was watching it on METV, but it was filling up the drive. But I digress. Serling was so could, I can't imagine him "phoning it in", but he surely did on this episode.
Galaxy vs. Solar System; perhaps they were trying to be sure we understood that they weren't from Earth. And that's how Adam and Eve populated the world. Gag.

This is sort of the opposite, but I've been rewatching Voyager and both partners of HHM from Better Call Saul have shown up - Michael McKean (Charles McGill) as the Clown in S02E23 "The Thaw" and Patrick Fabian (Howard Hamlim) as a Taresian in S03E20 "Favorite Son".

John DeLancie voices an evil Protoss (Alarak) in Starcraft II.

Couple of big names in Transformers... Leonard Nimoy voiced Galvatron in the '86 animated movie and Sentinel Prime in Dark of the Moon; George Takei voiced Yoketron in Transformers: Animated and Alpha Trion in Transformers: Prime

Seasons 1 and 2 were great. By the time they got into Season 3, I could tell in the first thirty seconds what the setup and "twist" were going to be. Season four was half-hour episodes padded to full hours. By the fifth season, I think they just didn't care any more.

The cycle of reruns began again just the other night. The change in quality is pretty dramatic.

Serling himself confessed that it was getting harder and harder to write new stories, and that he found himself basically reworking his older stories--a problem that formed the basis of the "Night Gallery" vignette "Midnight Never Ends."

John Daly ("Mr Flint" in "Requiem for Methuselah") was a East European bad guy in a first-season episode of Mission: Impossible. This was one in which Dan Briggs "had to" impersonate him "because of his bone structure." In truth, this was done to limit Steven Hill's scenes since he, as an Orthodox Jew, refused to work on weekends (M:I, like Star Trek, was notorious for going over schedule and over budget). At one point, Briggs-in-disguise almost slipped up by not using a cigarette holder, as Daly's character did.

Hill's refusal to work after sundown on Fridays was also the reason he was replaced with Peter Graves after the first season of M:I.

I guess Takei needed the money, but Nimoy?

Just remembered: Michael Forest ("Apollo" in "Who Mourns for Adonais?") was an alien invader in "Black Leather Jackets" on Twilight Zone the other night. He was pretty damned scary in that, too!
