Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Speaking of Montalban, I'm surprised this hasn't come up yet. One of the stranger make-up and accent combinations I've seen as he plays a Japanese crime boss in a first season Hawaii Five-O:

And it looks like they may have done so at Robin's Nest, in the main house courtyard to be precise.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

^Well, my understanding is that the whole reason Magnum, P.I. was created, or at least part of the reason, was as a means of reusing the production facilities, talent, and resources that were left over in Hawaii after Hawaii Five-O ended. So they would've naturally used a lot of the same locations, personnel, etc.

Mark Leonard was also on 5-0, playing a Japanese sleeper agent. He looked completely ridiculous with the fake epicanthic folds.

Who didn't?

There were a couple of Mission: Impossible episodes where Leonard Nimoy's Paris disguised himself as an Asian with fake epicanthic folds and a fake accent, presumably because he looked "exotic" to casting directors at the time. I could marginally buy it in the one where he was playing a Chinese advisor to a communist movement in a Latin American country, presuming that they hadn't met any actual Chinese people before, but it was ridiculous in the episode where he played a Japanese person in Japan and the Japanese people around him didn't instantly see through his disguise. (Although, to the episode's credit, they were all played by genuine Asian actors.)

Not a literal, leather-wearing dominatrix, mind you....She was playing a rich girl who was using her horse-training experience as a metaphor for molding Dobie into the ideal boyfriend....It was still pretty sexy, with her brandishing a riding crop and all, but in a more subtle, late 50s/early 60s way.

EDIT: Season 1, episode 27, aired in Spring of 1960. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1016940/

LATER EDIT: I just now watched an episode of Adam-12 in which the suspect was defended in court by Phillip (Colonel Green) Pine, while Reed and Malloy were represented by Roger (Captain John Christopher) Perry.

Hey if it can work for Sean Connery....

James Kirk seemed to think Spock looked Chinese.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

You could start a whole new topic just about the Trek guests that appeared on Batman...

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Nah. Then we'd get into an argument over whether they were Trek guests on Batman, or Batman guests who did Star Trek.

You know, Cesar Romero would've made an interesting Klingon.

LOL I had the exact same thought.

Since it was his trademark (which why it was still there but covered in white face paint on Batman), I bet he'd insist that the makeup department just embellish his own with extra side hair (fu-man-chu style) instead of covering it up entirely.

Well, we may not have gotten the Joker but at least we got the Riddler. And two Catwomen.
