Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Mannix has been very disappointing lately, as the episodes I'm watching move through the 1970s. Formerly a goldmine, there haven't been any Trek guest stars in many an episode.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Watched a 1967 Batman rerun recently on IFC that had some Trek connections:

The title: "A Piece of the Action"

The villain: Roger C. Carmel (Harry Mudd) as Col. Gumm

Background player: Angelique Pettyjohn (Shahna, the Drill-Thrall) as a lingerie model

Trek's own "Piece of the Action" didn't air until 1968.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

I know TREK_GOD_1 mentioned this way back at the beginning of this long running thread, but the other day I just watched Susan Oliver (Vina) in the Night Gallery episode "The Tune in Dan's Cafe" from 1972.


Click image to watch on Hulu (it's the final segment of the episode).

How about a rare TAS guest star? Ed Bishop, who played Asmodeus in "The Magicks of Megas-tu," starred as Commander Ed Straker in Gerry Anderson's UFO, which is available on Hulu. While we're at it, the episode "Destruction" featured a TNG guest star, Stephanie Beacham. Oh, and the recurring character of Col. Virginia Lake was played by a family member of a movie guest star: Wanda Ventham, the mother of Benedict Cumberbatch.

And there's David Opatoshu as an Indian in a 1970 episode of Daniel Boone...

...and Vic Perrin running a crooked sanitarium on The Big Valley....

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

I was watching the 1950 film "The Asphalt Jungle" yesterday and noticed the actor who portrayed Bela Okmyx (Anthony Caruso) as one of the 'hoods' looking to get rich in the film's heist.

The film is noted for being one of Marilyn Monroe's early films.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Kathryn Hays is prettier when she's not melodramatically miming...e.g., a 1965 episode of The Virginian.

Also, Sally Kellerman and William Schallert have their own Me-TV promos.

Last night's episode of "The Man from UNCLE" on Me-TV was a twofer: We had Marla McIvers AND the Greek god Apollo!

And there's the ubiquitous Michael Ansara playing a Native American on CHiPs.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

I just watched two episodes of the Roger Moore series "The Saint."

Kate Woodville aka Natira from Season 3 TOS, is 'The Saint' girl in the Season 3 episode 'The Scorpion.' She wears the short 1960s hairstyle Yvonne Craig wore in the "Batman" series.
