While I'm talking about Dallas alumni, how about William Smithers?  He played Jeremy Wendell on Dallas. On Star Trek he played Captain Merrick a.k.a. Merikus.


Smithers received his initial break on stage, making his Broadway debut  and winning a Theatre World Award for his performance as Tybalt in "Romeo and Juliet" in 1951. Olivia de Havilland, who played Juliet, also made her Broadway bow in that production. Shortly after Trek, he made a few movie appearances such as  Trouble Man (1972), Papillon (1973), Scorpio (1973) and Deathsport (1978). He guest starred on TV shows such as  "Mission: Impossible" (1966), "The F.B.I." (1965), Mannix (1967), "The Mod Squad" (1968), "The Name of the Game" (1968) and Barnaby Jones (1973),


A member of the Actor's Studio since 1952, he gives acting seminars throughout the country and is the director and co-author of the instructional videotape "The Method."

Today I'm watching Voyager, second part of 2 parts "Workforce" with guest star Don Most... He was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., and moved to California when he was about 20. If you don't immediately recognise the name and didn't see regular TV in the 70s, he was Donny Most who played Ralph Malph (Happy Days 1974-83).


In recent years, he was on the TV show Glee, as Rusty Pillsbury. In the 1990s, he guest starred on Sliders, Dark Skies, Diagnosis Murder, Baywatch, Murder She Wrote, and an amazing variety of shows since the early 1970s.

Was watching "The Mothers-in-Law", the old sitcom with Eve Arden and Kaye Ballard, a few months ago (we have a station that plays old shows), and never realized, as a kid when I watched it, that  Roger C. Carmel had a big part as one of the husbands.   We all know him as Harry Mudd from Star Trek!


 


Oh, and mentioning Don Most from Voyager again (aka Donny Most), did you know he was in the famous commercial for Reese's peanut butter cups where he was one of two teens who bump into eacch other and say "your chocolate is in my peanut butter....Your peanut butter is in my chocolate"


He's not credited anywhere, I just remember the commercial as a kid.  You guys can pull it up on youtube.

I've been trying to look this up for a while... remember the movie 'The Great Escape'? One of the POWs was played by Lawrence Montaigne... who appeared in two TOS episodes - once as a Romulan, once as a Vulcan. He also appeared on Batman, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Mission: Impossible, The Time Tunnel, The Invaders, Perry Mason, and McCloud.


In 1966, Montaigne portrayed the Romulan Decius in the Star Trek episode "Balance of Terror". A year later, he portrayed the Vulcan Stonn, a paramour of Spock's intended bride T'Pring, in the episode "Amok Time"

I talked about Lawrence Montaigne before.  I can't remember what board it was on.  But he was also in the original "Escape to Witch Mountain" playing the chauffeur.


I met him at a Star Trek convention, and he is a really funny guy.  He also had an interesting life.  I got his autograph, but did not buy his book.  When I was at the con, on about the third day Mr. Montaigne was sitting at his table with a parrot on his shoulder.  I said, "Why do you have a parrot on your shoulder?"  He said, "What parrot?"

Today I'm watching the TNG episode 'The Icarus Factor'.


Mitchell Ryan had earlier been considered for the part of series lead Captain Jean-Luc Picard. In 2004 he played Woody on the Drew Carey Show, and the Senator Roland Pierce on The West Wing. Like many Star Trek alumni, he did a little time on a soap opera, General Hospital (1993-94) and All My Children (1985-87). He also guest starred on Dallas. As well as Clint Eastwood's Magnum Force, he also starred in High Plains Drifter.


He's been in dozens of TV shows and movies.

Voiceovers are also a great place to look as well.

Funny you should say that because "Disney's Gargoyles" had Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis, who was on last night's Diagnosis Murder, Brent Spiner, and I think Michael Dorn was in there as well(half of TNG was in that cartoon!)

George Takei's very first job in acting was doing voice-overs.  He did the English dub-in voices for Godzilla films (transferring from Japanese to English).


George Takei has done many, many voiceovers, I don't see mentioned that he also did voice-over work in Happily Ever After: Fairy Tales for Every Child in the stories "Aladdin" and "The Emperor's New Clothes".

Yes, and the Emperor one was on this morning. The theme song for that episode is so catchy!
