He was also in a couple of episodes of The Untouchables. In one, he ran afoul of The Mob and was whacked in the backseat of a roadster.*

*It was painfully obvious that the pistol wasn't even pointed at him.

Charlie X, Robert Walker, Jr. in the Route 66 episode, Across Walnuts and Wine. He must have been twelve.

We just finished watching the whole run of Barney Miller. In a rarity, there's a scene set outside the squad room when Barney gets thrown in jail for not naming an informant.

His cellmate: William Windom. Recognized him by voice alone as he wasn't shown. Played a grumpy guy, of course.

In an aside, there have been some other interesting guest stars on both St Elsewhere and Hill Street Blues lately:

Michael "Cosmo Kramer" Richards as an investigative journalist on SE.

Louise "Mary Hartman" Lasser as "Victor Ehrlich's ditzy aunt Charise" on SE.

Meg Tilly ("Chloe" in The Big Chill) as a hooker in HSB. She would later have another role in the series, in which she gets whacked by The Mob.

John "Cliff Cleven" Ratzenberger as a fake cop/shakedown artist on HSB.

Eric Laneuville, "likeable orderly (and later EMR) Luther Hawkins" on SE, as a stone-cold killer on HSB. I've seldom seen an actor play two such different roles so convincingly.

Gail "Alixus" Strickland as "Gail Kennedy" in the Hill Street Blues episode "Invasion of the Third World Body Snatchers."

One of the best exchanges ever comes in this episode:

Leo Schnitz: [Talking about Officer Renko's deceased father, whose body has been stolen] You really think he could be sold for parts?

Lt. Howard Hunter:
Oh, well, corneas alone are going for upwards of seventy dollars a gram, Schnitz.

Det. Henry Goldblume: Howard, the man's body was riddled with cancer!

Lt. Howard Hunter: Oh. [Pause, then] Well, there's always the Third World markets.

I love Howard!

Just saw the 1962 Cold War paranoia thriller The Manchurian Candidate, which doesn't hold up all that well, but features several familiar ST:TOS faces:

Played of course, by James B. Sikking, Captain Styles from Star Trek III: The Search For Spock, and later, Doogie Howser's father.

Just saw quite a few ST actors in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest:

https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Vincent_Schiavelli
https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Louise_Fletcher
https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Brad_Dourif
https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Christopher_Lloyd
https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Peter_Brocco
https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Michael_Berryman

Jack Nicholson, alas, was never in any version of ST.
