I caught a very young-looking Yvonne Craig, in Perry Mason "The Case of the Lazy Lover" (1958).

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Speaking of Mariette Hartley, with James Garner having been a recent topic, I'm surprised this memorable series of commericals didn't come up here (though it may have been mentioned somewhere way upthread):



They were so convincing as a couple that Hartley reportedly took to wearing a T-shirt that proclaimed she wasn't James Garner's wife.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Hope this qualifies - a quick ad/promo for the 1964 Miss Rhengold contest - the last one ever. It features 74 year baseball legend Casey Stengel 'interviewing' a couple of the nominees - including future Yeoman Landon Celeste Yarnall..

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTcKIpVjH5A


Just FYI: Miss Rheingold was a contest run by the folks at Rheingold Beer, which was THE big beer in New York for ages. It was a truly huge phenomenon in the New York area. Millions of votes would be cast at bars in the New York area, and Miss Rheingold usually ended up with modeling and acting gigs for years. And why Casey Stengel? Rheingold sponsored the Mets radio/TV broadcasts in the 60s, and Casey was Mets manager - way more famous than any of his players then...

Wow. I remember that commercial!

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

The Invaders, "The Life Seekers", features Diana Muldaur as an alien who wants to go back home and convince her people that mankind deserves to be left alone.





Also featuring, in a small role, Paul Comi (Balance of Terror) as a cop at a road block who thinks there could be Romulan spies aboard this very car (okay, not really):




AND, Stephen Brooks (Ensign Garrivick in Obsession) as a patrol cop who sees too much and dies for it.


Also Morgan Jones, who was the Colonel in Assignment Earth! But I'm tired of scrolling thru the episode and grabbing shots.

I think Glenn Corbett was also on THE ROCKFORD FILES, as an FBI agent if I recall correctly.
Indeed he was, Season 5: "The Battle-Ax and the Exploding Cigar."

Was Ansara naturally that bald? I only remember seeing him "covered."
I believe he was.

And, slight nitpick - that's plaid, not check - Check? Check!

Edit: Oops! I think it might be considered tweed.
Tweed is somewhat rough wool woven in various patterns. That pattern is called "houndstooth check," done there with several colors. Another pattern sometimes called "check" is gingham, like Dorothy's dress in the Wizard of Oz. BTW the pattern of Corbett's suit above is called windowpane!
Corbett is giving off a strong William Windom vibe in this picture.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

In Outrage, a 1973 TV movie starring Robert Culp, we hit the jackpot when it comes to Trek guest actors:

Jason Wingreen (Dr. Linke), Mark Lenard, Don Stark, Phillip Pine (Col. Green), Walt Davis (played a Klingon, a Romulan, and Tantalus in Dagger of The Mind), and James B. Sikking (Capt. Styles)

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

I watched the two-part pilot to Knight Rider and Charles Napier (Adam from 'This Way to Eden' and the military official from DS9's 'Little Green Men') showed up as a demolition racer. Robert Philips from 'The Menagerie' (and a few "Mission: Impossible" episodes) shows up as a security guard.

One nit here is that Tantalus V was the name of the colony in "Dagger of the Mind". Walt Davis played a therapist.

Hm, I knew it didn't sound right, but lifted the information directly from IMDB without checking it first.
