Barry Russo. I remember seeing that Five-0 episode. Guess being a criminal paid better than Starfleet. He was on The F.B.I. too.
The F.B.I. was one of those shows I'd always heard about, but never managed to catch even a minute of. Worth seeking out, Melakon?

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

It depends whether you're interested in watching a television show that has J. Edgar Hoover's stamp of approval. The show is basically a glorification of the FBI, which had approval of scripts and casting decisions. You're better off watching James Stewart in The F.B.I. Story. which was also made with their cooperation.

No time to watch the Twilight Zone one, but the M:I one was brilliant!

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Found these at the Internet Archive's collection of public domain TV episodes.

From the 1960 series Outlaws, a western which aired on NBC:

Alfred Ryder, at 44, in "Shorty":


Skip Homeier, at 30, in "The Rape of Red Sky:"

At least I think it's Skip. Gerald Mohr was in the same
episode, and they sort of resemble each other.

BONUS: Leonard Nimoy, at 29, as a hired gun in "Shorty":

Speaking of Paul Carr, in The Rockford Files season five "The Empty Frame" (1978) he played half of the first gay couple I ever saw portrayed on TV as just regular people who happened to be gay, and whose sexuality wasn't a major plot point or dwelt on in any way.



The episode also has some of the most hilarious Angel Martin moments of the series, which is saying something.

I remember that. The episode didn't actually acknowledge openly that they were lovers, of course, just friends and business partners who shared a dwelling, but the subtext was clear.

Guy Raymond, from bartender in The Trouble with Tribbles, to bartender on Green Acres.



Does this guy always play bartenders?

Apparently - around the time of Tribbles, he had been in a series of beer commercials as - yes - a bartender. but his IMDB listing long and impressive

So many character actors don't get enough respect. Many of them are very, very good!

A lot of his IMDB credits are for characters with actual names, so there's no telling about all of those.

Though in 1959, he did play a Bootlegger on Naked City, and in 1960 was an uncredited Bartender on Maverick.

The thing is, most of these people played basically the same types of roles - and they did them very well. Look at Trek:

Roger C Carmel was really the only choice for Harry Mudd - Kandel never said who he had in mind when he wrote it, but admitted that he really WAS Mudd.

William Windom made a career out of playing normal guys who go very close or over the edge.

Robert Walker Jr was the epitome of adolescent/young adult angst in 60s TV.

and so on...

Most casting directors for TV in the 60s/70s were casting multiple shows, so yes, you would tend to use familiar faces you know can do the job.
