Then there's always Kay E. Kuter. He played the Cytherian "head" from the Barclay center-of-the-galaxy episode, the name of which escapes me right now. Next Generation, granted...but here he's playing his recurring role of Newt Kiley on Green Acres. At least that's of original-series vintage!

^ I first noticed Kuter's name in a 60's episode of The Outer Limits. In "The Premonition", he's some guy trapped in some limbo world outside of time. The heroes are in a frozen moment of time (actually slow moving moment ala "Wink of an Eye"), and he's trying to kill them or something so he can take their place in the real world. He was rather unrecognizable though, as he was mostly seen superimposed as a negative image into scenes.
Kuter was also Enduran in the 1984 movie The Last Starfighter.

^ And Xur, in the same film, was also a Klingon on TNG.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

I think we should remember we're in the TOS forum. There's another thread in the general forum discussing actors from the other series in other series.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Strangely, only two episodes after being a featured player in the 1st season I Spy episode "The Tiger", France Nuyen shows up again in a small role as a naughty girl, in "Always Say Goodbye." Nancy Kwan must have been busy that week.

James Sloyan (Setal/Jarok in the TNG episode 'The Defector') was on an episode of Beverley Hills 90120 (the original) in a small role.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

This is thin, but if it'll get the thread back on track...just caught a bit of Jon Lormer (guested in three installments of TOS as different characters) on a episode of The Big Valley yesterday.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Oh, I saw Jon Lormer as the "old man that knows what's going on, but everyone laughs at him" character in a really bad sci-fi-horror film called "The Boogens". Must have been one of his final roles. Pretty thankless.

Katherine Woodville (Natira in the TOS episode 'For the World Is Hollow And I Have Touched The Sky') appeared as a antagonist spy in an episode of Mission: Impossible, as well as a lot of other shows...

Oh, "The Boogens" isn't retro TV. It's straight to home video/cable from the early '80s. Like I said, it may be one of the last things Jon Lormer did.

May not be TV, but early '80s is definitely retro. Much as we may hate to admit it, the early '80s is a lot closer to TOS than it is to now.
