I saw Anthony Montgomery in a FedEX commercial the other day.

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

I forgot Rene Auberjonois (Odo) was in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. I saw it the other day and it caught me off guard. I thought I switched the channel to DS9 for a second. Since there is no "I forgot he was in that" thread, I'll slip this in here.

Rene Auberjonois is the Chef in Disney's "The Little Mermaid." I still laugh about that one.
Auberjonois did a lot of animation voice work in the '80s, including Desaad on The Super Powers Team, a role he later reprised on Justice League Unlimited. He also played General Zod in the 1988 Ruby-Spears Superman animated series.

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

Frakes was in this weird episode of the 80's Twilight Zone. He played a guy at a party who hits on Pam Dawber's character but backs off when he finds out she's a secretary (this being a parallel world where secretaries are world famous celebrities).

Also the 80's TZ ep "Dead Run" had John DeLancie and Brent Spiner in it.

Nichelle Nichols co-starred in "Truck Turner" as a foul-mouthed madame out to kill the title character. Her bad Southern accent, loose fitting houchie clothes (with no bra), and bad 70's makeup were hilarious.
Odo and Neelix both co-starred together in "Benson" in the 70's. Loved that show.

And don't forget Robert Picardo as the "JohnnyCab" in "Total Recall". He tried to kill Arnold.

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

I was surprised to learn that Robert Picardo played the main alien (and his dad) in Explorers, as well as Starkiller in the movie inside the movie.


Here's a trailer where Picardo speaks as the alien (around 0:55):




Here's the Starkiller scene (movie sequence is from about 0:20 to almost 3:00, there's an interesting fourth wall violation, clearly on purpose, at around 2:30):

^Robert Picardo was in most of Joe Dante's movies. He was one of Dante's regular repertory players, along with William Schallert ("The Trouble With Tribbles," DS9: "Sanctuary") and Dick Miller (DS9: "Past Tense"). Perhaps his most notable Dante role was the Cowboy in Innerspace, though he also had a major role in Gremlins 2.

Nah, his biggest Dante part by far was Eddie Quist, the murderous werewolf in THE HOWLING. His big transformation scene was ground-breaking at the time, although it's been eclipsed somewhat by AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON, which came out shortly thereafter. Picardo is almost unrecognizable as a greasy, long-haired serial killer who turns out to be a werewolf.

"I'd like to give you a piece of my mind," he says, before yanking out a chunk of his own brain and giving it to Dee Wallace . . ..

Great stuff.

I think I saw The Howling once and found it totally unmemorable because Dee Wallace totally sucked any life and interest out of it. I could simply never stand her.

OMG, that's him?!? I dated a girl in high school who turned me onto that, years before TNG even came out! She used to play that scene over and over on her VCR. It is a great scene.

I haven't looked at that in decades. Ditto for Innerspace.

Picardo was JohnnyCab, but he didn't try to kill Ahnuld. It was the other cabdriver (played by Legate Broca from DS9) who did that.
