Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

And of course Warehouse 13 regular Saul Rubinek played Data's abductor in TNG's "The Most Toys," so having him interact with Spiner in one of the season arcs was sort of a reunion there.

Oh, and don't forget that Faran Tahir, aka Captain Robau, is one of the Regents.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

And in a non Trek yet still genre aside, Lindsay Wagner has a recurring role. I think it's cool that Jamie Murray, who is also a semi-regular as H.G. Wells, was named after the Bionic Woman because her father was a fan, and then she got to work with her namesake.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

^Actually that's Jaime Murray, which is what really gives away that she was named for Jaime Sommers, since it's an unusual spelling of the name. (I gather it was actually the result of a spelling error Lindsay Wagner made when writing the character's name, which was supposed to be Jamie, on a chalkboard.)

Warehouse 13 is a treasure trove of genre actors. It's had Aaron Ashmore (Smallville's Jimmy Olsen), C.C.H. Pounder (Justice League's Amanda Waller and still the only actress to do the role justice onscreen), Mark Sheppard, Amy Acker, Anthony Michael Hall (The Dead Zone), Sasha Roiz, Tia Carrere, and Kelly Hu. Plus Roger Rees, but I hesitate to list him as a genre actor, because his main prior SF credit was M.A.N.T.I.S. and he deserves better than that be defined by that.

And let's not forget James Marsters and Anthony Stewart Head from BUFFY (and elsewhere).

I meant to list Head, but he got lost in the shuffle somehow. And I'd forgotten about Marsters. Should we count Polly Walker too? She and Roiz both came from Caprica.

I do sometimes wonder if WH13 does their casting at Comic-Con . . .

How they've missed John DeLancie or Wil Wheaton I'll never know, although I suppose they still have one more half-season to rectify those omissions!

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

^Well, Wil Wheaton had a recurring role in the last couple of seasons of Eureka, which crossed over with W13 and thus was supposedly in the same universe. So unless Dr. Isaac Parrish gets a job at the Warehouse, I doubt we'd see Wheaton.

(Then again, Saul Rubinek played a scientist in a first-season Eureka before getting the W13 gig.)

And Joe Morton appeared on WH13 as a character other than his Eureka character.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

I just happened to see The Untouchables 1962 episode "The Night They Shot Santa Claus" and it features both Barry Russo (1:38 into this clip) and Grace Lee Whitney (at the very beginning of this clip).

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

It Takes a Thief, Season 2, episode 1, "One Night in Soledade".

The episode begins with a twofer - Madlyn Rhue (Space Seed) attempts to poison Logan Ramsey (Bread and Circuses):



Later, Al is assigned by his boss, series regular Malachi Throne (The Menagerie) to work with guest agent/babe Nancy Kovack (A Private Little War):

Just caught a brief appearance by Ian (Mr. Atoz) Wolfe in the Wonder Woman pilot (1975).

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

I just saw Man from UNCLE's "The Minus-X Affair," which has Theo Marcuse and a young Paul Winfield. Also King Moody, who was Shtarker in Get Smart and Ronald McDonald in commercials from 1975-84.

That's some serious residual money there, when you consider how many Ronald McDonald commercials Mickey D's made in those 9 years.
