The official Michael Dorn weight loss thread!
 
Ok so there had to be one.

I think several things are clear...

1)Dorn is pretty tall, but doesn't have an overly large frame.

2) He was padded over the years, this padding seemed to increase in later seasons.

3) Dorn filled out a bit, but not to excess on his own over the years.

What seems likely is that Dorn, who does look somewhat smaller these days, decided to trim down a bit. I don't see anything to suggest he's ill, but know one seems to know for sure.

He became a vegan.

It's not a choice I'd make, but it worked well for him. Though he now looks like Gus Fring from Breaking Bad.

He has a recurring role on "Castle" as Beckett's shrink and looks EARLY TNG trim!

Oh man...watching that video I would have had NO IDEA he was Worf. Kudos to Mr. Dorn for being a good enough actor to pull that off.

Handsome man. He looks good on it, I'd say.

My wife, who loves RIker/Frakes when he's fit, said Dorn was certainly handsome enough to have pulled off the Riker role...and that voice! Per her: :drool::drool::drool:

Ah that explains it vegans almost always look ill. My sister tried to become a vegan years ago, and she kept getting sick, she even had to go to a doctor for low blood pressure...he prescribed Gatorade for her.:lol:

Yeah Dorn did put on weight as TNG progressed, and you really noticed it on DS9. But it didn't detract from his Klingon appearance...

True, not a totally negative impact on the Klingon persona, but it was REALLY noticable when he played Willie Mays in "Far Beyond The Stars."

However, even at his worst, he never packed on the pounds like Frakes. Holy smoke! :eek:

He was very thin when we had him last October at Hollywood Xpo, it was hard to be it was him.

His new figure ages him.

haha...that's what makes TATV least convincing as a TNG era episode, in my opinion!

At least with Worf and Riker they were aging so weight gain made sense. Whereas with Data Spiner's weight gain (even if it was loss than others) really takes away from your suspension of disbelief.

I'm sorry, but it is so un-Klingon listening to Michael Dorn talk about dressing up veggie burgers :lol

But, I think he looks good and if he's healthier then that's all that matter.
