^That actually goes a long way toward explaining Hill's important, but ultimately minor role as the DA on Law & Order for all those years. He does good work, but will only do so much of it. The shooting schedule must have been arranged around when he was willing to work.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Today's theme is 23rd-century medical officers who used to be 19th-century army officers. I almost didn't recognize John Hoyt in beard and uniform on an AMC airing of The Rifleman this morning...though I knew who he was by the time he spent some time in the jail of fellow pilot doctor Paul (series regular Micah Torrance) Fix. Now De Kelley's sporting army blues on a Me-TV airing of Bonanza. Damn you and your infernal Cartwright logic, Hoss!

Anthony Caruso popped up in the 5th season Mannix I watched this week, "Wine from these grapes", as the head of a California vineyard. Oddly enough he didn't turn out to be the killer.

Then again, the DA (not the assistants, but the DA) on L&O never gets to do much anyway except sit in his office and say "Make the deal." None of the post-Adam Schiff DAs really deviated from this either.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Some, off the top of my head, that were probably already mentioned:
*Sid Haig was a gangster in the James Bond film Diamonds are Forever and is known by many of us 80s kids as the villain from Jason of Star Command. (And, he now plays characters in Rob Zombie films).

Sid Haig was also in Coffy w/Pam Grier...also playing a villain.

*Roger C. Carmel was in the Clint Eastwood film Breezy. The friend of the fifty-something protagonist portrayed by William Holden who is dating the onscreen girl of the title who is around 17 years old.

*I still find it funny that Fred Williamson was in an episode of Star Trek. Williamson was in a lot of films in the 1970s, and in later years. In That Man Bolt, he portrayed the courier Jefferson Bolt who came across a love interest in Hong Kong portrayed by another Trek performer, Miko Mayama.

*The actor who portrayed Cloud William from 'The Omega Glory' I recall was a detective (?) in Chinatown with Jack Nicholson. He was also a villain in the Paul Newman film Harper.

*Pamelyn Ferdin, who I understand was big during the 70s, voiced Lucy van Pelt in a Charlie Brown episode I used to watch frequently as a little kid - Play it Again, Charlie Brown. I also saw her - thanks to Youtube - in episodes of Vega$,Beretta, Odd Couple, Shazam, and Streets of San Francisco. (I understand that she is a big animal rights activist right now, and seems to be pretty serious about it).

And in Soylent Green.

Si. I just saw an episode of Penn & Teller's "Bullshit" that ripped her a new one and made her look pretty crazy.

Pamelyn Ferdin and Brian Tochi, who appeared together in "And the Children Shall Lead," were both regulars on Filmation's Space Academy.

Chinatown is one of my favorite movies and I knew Roy Jenson from other shows, but for some reason it was many years before I realized it was him in "The Omega Glory."

Jenson and Ken Lynch are in an "Andy Griffith" together.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

ME-tv just had a Hogan's from very late in its run, with Joseph (Galt) Ruskin as a particularly nasty Gestapo man.

(very late Hogan's: post Kinch, with the other black guy who suddenly showed up.)

I was able to watch it yesterday after seeing your post, Forbin. I thought it was a well-paced, interesting episode just under 30min. And, I also liked how Penn & Teller showed a balanced view of PETA.

Yeah, Ferdin - according to how she is portrayed in the P&T episode - is kinda coo-coo. Cute, but coo-coo.
