Sam Waterston is one of my favorite actors. I know he's not exactly a young man, but there's gotta be some kind of scifi role for him to play.
He was in Capricorn One back in the 70's as one of the astronauts: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cI4qYsP9oME

When he's not selling Robot Attack Insurance, of course.
One of the best SNL commercial parodies EVER!

But that's not sci-fi. More like, conspiracy wacko.

Okay, it's science fiction about a wacko conspiracy. A manned mission to Mars is still (sadly) sci-fi, and definitely was back in the 70's when the movie was made.

Re: Actor's that have not yet starred in a superhero movie or scifi mo

I was going to mention my favorite actor of all time (Vaughn Armstrong) but I see that he did have a cameo in a sci-fi movie, The Philadelphia Experiment (he played the truck driver who gets his rig stolen by the main character). Sucks that, given all the Trek work he's done, he's never appeared in a film about it. STXIII, anyone?

He's always been on my short list to play Commissioner Gordon.

Persons denying the existence of Robots may be Robots themselves.
