Yup - I also recently saw Corey on Barney Miller as an Amish man.

Mission : Impossible
"The Carriers"

George Takei's first mission with the IMF will be his last if he is exposed by co-star Barry "Giotto" Russo.

He also did another Barney as an elderly ex-con who commits a crime because he can't cope with the outside world.


Outside of James Gregory, William Windom and Corey, I am hard pressed to remember another TOS actor who appeared on Barney. Barney Miller had its own little roster of bit players who they used about once or twice a year each as various perps/victims. People like Candy Azzara, Phil Leeds , and especially Ken Tigar, who played a nut who thought he was a werewolf - and then later was possessed, and another who thought he was Christ.

Do you count the TOS movies? George Murdock ("God" from ST V, as well as Admiral Hanson in TNG) had a recurring role as Lt. Scanlon of Internal Affairs.

Looking over IMDb's cast list for the series, I also find Vic Tayback, Ed McCready Jay Robinson, Meg Wyllie, Janet MacLachlan, Jon Lormer, Ian Wolfe, Michael Pataki, and Victor Brandt. And if we count the movies, there's Alex Henteloff, Christopher Lloyd, Roger Aaron Brown, and Allan Miller.

And it has gone the other way a couple of times. Gregory Sierra was in DS9's "Second Skin" and Ron Glass was in VGR's "Nightingale." Guest stars who did both Barney and modern Trek include David L. Lander, Kenneth Tigar, Kenneth Mars, Stefan Gierasch, K Callan, James Cromwell, Robert Costanzo, Nehemiah Persoff, Richard Libertini, Barry Gordon, Stanley Kamel, Joanna Miles, Tricia O'Neil, Warren Munson, Alan Oppenheimer, and Earl Boen.

Barney's in our dinnertime rotation of half hour shows to watch while eating. We watch one whole disk, one ep a night, then rotate to another show. It's a couple of months between Barney Miller disks, but even at that my wife and I find ourselves saying saying "HIM again!" (or her) all the time.

I have so many favorite BARNEYS, and so many favorite 'him/her again' people, it shad to choose the best. Always a soft spot for Phil Leeds - one was on Antenna the other night where this plain looking lady had gotten charmed by, and then accosted by a suave, good looking 'photographer' , and when they find him and bring him in it's - Phil Leeds. Dietrich, bless him, just goes, "NO!".

BRAVO - I had forgotten about all those.... Lormer, in fact, is IN the episode "Werewolf".....

I was much more aware of the TNG guests who had done Barney. Of course some of THOSE have been on just about everything also. Tigar's IMDB list is ridiculously long, as is Oppenheimer's.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Mission : Impossible
"Fakeout"

Veering off topic a little here, but this is Lloyd Bridges as he appeared at the time Star Trek began production. Hard to imagine him as Captain Kirk, but apparently he nearly got the role.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

What's wild about "Elena" is that it's basically an episode built entirely around guest stars. It's a solo mission for Rollin Hand, and Martin Landau was still officially billed as a recurring special guest at that point, even though he'd effectively become the series lead once Steven Hill was marginalized.

Wasn't Sofaer also the voice of the Melkot in "Spectre of the Gun"?

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Indeed he was a Melkot, too. Good pick up.

That's a good point about the "all guest star episode"! It's interesting in these early episodes to see that very few of the team are utilised some weeks, and, yes, Rollin/Landau is always a "guest star" at this point.

I really think Steven Hill makes a very cool team leader. I think Herb Solow wrote about having to fire Hill refusing to work weekends for religious reasons or something? A shame, I think he's great.

Hill is a very conservative Orthodox Jew. So he was VERY strict about observing the Sabbath, so that of course complicated matters shooting wise. The one great story is about him refusing to continue shooting until he could do a certain prayer - which required other Jewish males. So Solow had to scurry around Desilu gathering Shatner, Nimoy (in full Vulcan makeup!), and others to please Hill. A picture of that would be priceless...

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Actually the straw that broke the camel's back wasn't about Hill's religious observances, but about his adamant refusal to do a rather simple ladder-climbing stunt. He actually walked off the set and locked himself in his trailer, and as a result he was briefly suspended (and his role dropped altogether from the episode "Action!"). For the rest of the season, his role was diminished to simply assembling and briefing the team in the opening scenes, without joining them on the missions. Although the episodes were aired out of production order so the episodes in which he played a major role are scattered throughout the season.
