Is there a "They were in that??" thread?

If not, I just discovered that Jennifer Lien appears on Adam Sandler's first comedy album.

Re: Is there a "They were in that??" thread?

There's a "Trek guest stars in surprising roles" in the TOS forum, but I don't recall similar threads in the other series forums.

I got season 1 of Adventures of Superman a few weeks ago, and Jeff Corey (The Cloud Minders), Anthony Caruso (A Piece of the Action), and Russell Johnson (from Gilligan's Island) all show up. Vic Perrin is in a later Superman episode but I don't have it.

Oh, and John Harmon (the bum in City on the Edge of Forever and later Tepo in APotA) is in the Russell Johnson episode I believe.

It always blew my mind when I realized just how many Trek actors beyond the obvious two were in the animated series Gargoyles

Re: Is there a "They were in that??" thread?

^Same here when I found out.

After watching 300 again, I didn't know Lena Headey (Cersei from Game of Thrones) and Michael Fassbender (Magneto in First Class) was in it. I guess it was one of those 'I didn't recognize them before they were famous to me' situations. Also, Seth Rogen in Ancorman.

Rene Auberjonois is the Chef in Disney's "The Little Mermaid." I still laugh about that one.

GARGOYLES!

And then we have Jeffrey Combs voicing Ratchet on Transformers: Prime. Sometimes Weyoun goes up into the Ratchet tone of voice and I giggle every time. Some of Ratchet's funniest lines are over here on Youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10TUh0wJkxw

There's a thread somewhat like that (link) in the Original Series Forum, with many fun screengrabs.

Re: Is there a "They were in that??" thread?

I love Lois & Clark: The New adventures of Superman and it has quite a few Trek-related cameo's:

Robert Beltran appears as the baddie in a season 1 episode.

Densie Crosby appears in multiple episodes as Dr. Gretchen Kelley.

Jonathan Frakes has a bizarre episode close to the end of the series as a rich 'collector' who is very eccentric.

L&C episodes featuring Trek stars:

Frakes: 'Dont Tug on Supermans Cape'

Crosby: 'The Phoenix', 'A bolt From the Blue' & 'Madame Ex'

Beltran: 'Fly Hard'


Hope that helps
