Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

I was watching "Gambit," an old heist movie with Michael Caine and Shirley Maclaine, when who shows up as an ominous Arab security chief but Arnold Moss, aka Anton Karidian, aka Kodos the Executioner. He's made up to look Middle Eastern, but is instantly recognizable.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Another TCM moment: In Walk, Don't Run, a 1966 Cary Grant comedy set during the Tokyo Olympics, a young George Takei pops up briefly as a Japanese police captain, complete with a thick Japanese accent! The accent actually threw me off a bit, so I had to squint at the TV screen to make sure it was him . . ..

Just saw Gambit on TCM the other night, too. In addition to Moss, it also has TOS alums:

Roger C. Carmel -- Harry Mudd

John Abbot -- Ayelborne

and, in a one line cameo near the end:

Vic Tayback -- Krako

It was like Trek Old Home Week. And not a bad caper film, either.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Ah, I tuned in late and missed a couple of those. And I thought that was Krako near the end . . ..

I Spy season 1: "Court of the Lion" - Miko Mayama (Yoeman Tamura in "A Taste of Armageddon") as a poor Japanese fishing village girl in trouble.

Alexander Mundy encounters Michael Strong with an outrageous Russian accent in It Takes a Thief's season 2 opener, "Saturday Night in Venice".

Interestingly enough, wasn't that actress who played 'Inga' Brooke Bundy, I think her name is, who was the Enterprise D's Chief Engineer for one episode of The Next Generation?

Not TOS, but just interesting!

Higher up the thread, someone mentioned Catherine (Natira) Woodville's appearance in the first episode of The Avengers entitled "Hot Snow". The first part of the episode can be seen here:

Brooke Bundy was SO freakin pretty! Yet another 60s chick I had a big crush on.

And another Mannix twofer! Jeff Corey (The Cloud Minders) as a stuffy psychiatrist, and Jay Robinson (Elaan of Troyius) in a wild performance as the bugfug crazy serial killer.

Both Corey and Robinson show up all over the place in the 60s/70s...

Here's Jeff (Plasus) Corey in a segment of Night Gallery called "The Dead Man", which also featured Louise (Rayna Kapec) Sorel:

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

I've been watching Mission:Impossible Season 1 specifically to play spot-the-Trek-actor, and, man it has not disappointed. Nearly every episode in Mission Season 1 has someone from TOS Season 1 in it, which makes me think that guest actors were signed to do the Trek/Mission double (to save money at cash-strapped Desilu perhaps?).

Anyway, the most interesting thing for me so far was discovering that two Enterprise crew were actual IMF agents, not guest villains or whatever, but actually on the undercover team! The two actors to have the distinction of being both Starfleet officers and IMF agents are George Takei, and Eddie "Mr. Leslie" Paskey.
