Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Michael J. Pollard ("Miri") shows up in two early episodes of the first season of Dobie Gillis as Jerome Krebs, Maynard's cousin. Pollard was brought in when Bob Denver got his draft notice. After Denver failed his physical, he came back and resumed his role. Pollard was paid off on his contract and released. It's too bad we never saw Pollard return to Star Trek, he might have been good as a Ferengi.

Of course, William Schallert ("Tribbles") was a recurring character on the show as teacher Mr. Pomfritt, and it's probably where I first saw him. Before Bob Denver was Gilligan, I knew him as Maynard G. Krebs.

Personal thanks to Harvey for making it possible for me to see Dobie again after more than 50 years. I was 8 when it first aired.

Edit: Yvonne Craig as Dobie's love interest of the week, member of a family of trapeze artists.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

We've covered TV and movies, how about radio? The fifth episode of the 1950 science fiction anthology Dimension X, adapting "Knock" by Fredric Brown (author of the story on which "Arena" was indirectly based), featured Arnold Moss (Karidian/Kodos) in the lead role, playing opposite Joan Alexander, the voice of Lois Lane in the '40s Superman radio series and cartoon shorts.

Pomfritt?? Seriously?? They had a character named "Mr. French Fry"??!!

My exposure to Dobie was limited. I'm not sure I've seen it at all since "Bring Me The Head of Dobie Gillis" ... which I turned off before it was over — fortunately.

Ah, I know the original well. From memory:
The last man on Earth sat in a chair. There was a knock at the door.

"Hel-lo, Wal-ter."
(Edit: So much for memory. It's "sat alone in a room.")

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Yes, Silvercrest, Mr. French Fry. There's also another teacher named Mr. Millfloss, which I assume is a reference to George Eliot.

I'm almost finished with first watch of the Dobie Gillis disks, and have spotted more future Trek guests. I didn't write any of them down, so some of this is from memory.

More episodes with Yvonne Craig. Stanley Adams (Cyrano Jones), John Abbott (Ayelbourne), Roy Jenson (Cloud William), John Fiedler (Mr. Hengist) in multiple episodes, Marianna Hill (Helen Noel), Julie Parrish (Miss Piper), Sherry Jackson (Andrea), David Frankham (Larry Marvick), Barry Russo (Commodore Wesley, Giotto), Gary Walberg (Commander Hansen), Mickey Morton (big guy in "Gamesters"), and Peter Brocco (Claymare).

I don't think the 4th and final season is out yet, but Sally Kellerman and others are in that one. Also spotted a lot of non-Trek actors, like Don Knotts, Herbert Anderson, Michele Lee, Roy Roberts, Mel Blanc, and others.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

This week's finds.

Sarah Marshall (The Deadly Years) as a black widow type on the F-Troop episode "Wrongo Star and the Lady in Black"...





And the ever lovely Susan Oliver in the very last episode of The Invaders:

Just watched a Gunsmoke with Gary Lockwood as leader of an outlaw gang. He was credited first as "special guest," before Richard Jaeckel and Jim Davis, with "And John Anderson" last.

It is, although the season four breakout hasn't been released yet.

Some dope just couldn't fit all four seasons worth of discs in the envelope... I blame Brannon Braga.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Marianna Hill is listed again in the last episode I watched last night, though I haven't determined which of the two girls in the episode is her, she's near bottom on the end credits. Star Trek came along 3-6 years later for most of these people, and the makeup/hair styling is definitely different.

Raymond Bailey, who only a year or two later was Mr. Drysdale on Beverly Hillbillies, has several episodes as dean of S. Peter Pryor Junior College. But he's almost unrecognizable because he's not wearing a toupee and is completely bald on top.

I forgot to mention - also in a small role in that final Invaders episode was Stewart Moss, Joe Tormolen in The naked Time and Hanar in By Any Other Name. Forgot to screencap him.

That looks like it might be the same costume he wore in The Outer Limits: The Sixth Finger, where David McCallum gets a Big Giant Head.

Don Rickles! I wish he had done a Trek episode.

Rickles did do dramatic roles sometimes. He's the local tavern patron giving Burgess Meredith a hard time in Twilight Zone's "Mr. Dingle the Strong".

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

I keep meaning to post this, but have never got around to this.

In the Brady Bunch episode, "The Click" - Greg tries out for the football team, - kept thinking the coach sounded familiar. He kinda looked familiar too - and since he looked like a young Larry "Frank Burns" Linville, thought it might be him. But nooo - credits came up and it was....Bart LaRue!
