Sadler was hardly an unknown.
I meant unknown "to me." I didn't recognize him. That helped me, specifically.

I didn't recall seeing Sadler in any roles prior to this. Having an unknown in the role helped enrich the mystery of the character for me. That, plus he did a great job in that role.
He'd been floating around TV as secondary characters for a while.

I remember him being Dan's idiot buddy Dwight from the first couple of seasons of Roseanne.

He was also in Die Hard 2 and The Shawshank Redemption.

Holy crap, he was that con in Shawshank Redemption. I never even noticed that until you pointed it out to me. And that's one of my favorite movies. Couple other Trek chars in that movie too. The prisoner who raped people was a security guard guest star in one of TNG's episodes and of course Warden Norton was Captain Maxwell. Which explains why he was going nuts blowing things up.

Sadler was Death in Bill & Ted, and the villain in Die Hard 2, before becoming Sloan - that was definitely marquee value at the time.

People, I'm sorry for the confusion. I did not mean the actor is unknown or not a star or whatever. I just meant he was unknown to me! Only to me! That is all! Now if you don't mind, I'm going to crawl back under my rock now. It's very bright out here. What year is it, again?

I can't speak for anyone else, but I wasn't attacking you in any sort of way and didn't read into anyone else attacking you. Just your comment sort of spurred the conversation to what else Sadler has played. Can I pick up the rock now?

When Original Star Trek aired in the 1960s, it was instrumental in making me more aware of some actors. Guys like William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy, to name two. I had seen Shatner previously in episodes of The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, and The Man From U.N.C.L.E., but he really wasn't on my radar at the time. And Nimoy was unknown to me too. The only actors I was aware of at that time were people like John Hoyt (I knew his name from Outer Limits), Paul Fix (from The Rifleman), Gary Lockwood (The Lieutenant), Sally Kellerman (Outer Limits again), and Paul Carr (from Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea). And they were all in the pilots. Shatner, Nimoy, Kelley, etc., were complete unknowns to me back then.

Of course, I was 15 at the time.

His nude scene in Die Hard II still hammers at my heterosexuality.

Okay, just wanted to make sure you knew where I was coming from! Certainly not trying to slight the actor in any way. I loved him in the role. I was definitely ignorant of his other work. I'll check out some of these other films again you guys have mentioned. I've seen a couple of them years ago, but maybe I'll get the opportunity to watch again and look for Sadler. I saw Iron Man 2 a couple of years prior to me watching DS9 (I came to the show late), so perhaps I subconsciously remembered him which made my experience a little more mysterious.

Re: Who Is This Guy??

Sometimes it takes a certain role for us to regonise an actor, sure we might have seen them before but they never really stayed with us for whatever reason. Then they do a role and all of a sudden whe we watch them in a new role or even one of their earlier roles. It's suddenly its so and so from .......

You wouldn't have remembered him subconsciously from IM2, because he was only in IM3.
