I was pretty surprised to learn that Robert Beltran voiced a Chief in the animated Free Birds film just recently. George Takei is also in it

After I saw Inside Llewyn Davis I looked at the cast list and saw Ethan Phillips, and I don't remember seeing anyone who looks like Ethan Phillips at all.

Jonathan Frakes popped up on The Waltons and The Twilight Zone (the 1980s revival), old shows that I happened to catch.

I was pleased to see Alexander Siddig appear in DaVinci's Demons, and now I'm watching him in Primeval.

Brent Spiner and John DeLancie have also been in the 80's TZ. The same episode, in fact.

Re: Have you ever been surprised to see a Trek actor in something else

here's a few that surprised me:

Man From Earth had John Billingsly and Tony Todd.

The Dark Knight had Tiny Lester, who played Klang from the Enterprise pilot.

Max Grodenchic was in Apollo 13.

Nikita Ager, who played Rajiin, was in that Pirates of Silicon Valley and Shark Attack 2.

Robert Foxworth, who played the evil Admiral in DS9's Homefront/ Paradise Lost, voiced Ratchet it Michael Bay's Transformers


Eric Pierpoint, who played Captain Sanders in DS9's For the Uniform, turned up as Mr. Cole in Liar Liar.

Why would anyone be surprised to see an actor who had been in Star Trek?
It seems that many Trek actors all but disappear after their time on the show, so the question is valid.
Acting is a tough business, and it's not just Star Trek where this "disappearing" is notable. Most actors don't get more than one multi-season television shows to stay visible. And many actors don't necessarily want to stay in front of the camera all the time. Some go into writing, directing, and producing. Or others go into stage work.

Re: Have you ever been surprised to see a Trek actor in something else

A big budget film, yes. Still remember seeing Tim Russ out of the blue in Die Hard, that was about ten years ago lol.. I guess being honest bar Sir Patrick Stewart, Shatner, Nimoy, Takei, Nichols (well the surviving TOS cast) none of the others are A-list. Maybe the remainder TNG cast are B-list due to that show's good ratings, but the man on the street IMO wouldn't know who Robert Duncan McNeill, Terry Farrell, or Marc Alaimo are.

I think Tony Todd was in Wishmaster, and of course was Candyman. "Worf, I came for you.." lol..

I think he's mainly known for his role in The Fith Element and not for Klang.
