Barry Lynch & Richard Lynch

I know they're brothers, Barry appearing first in "Face of the Enemy", and then Richard in "Gambit".

I sort of wonder if Barry, after his gig, called his brother and said "Hey, see if you can get a Star Trek, it's great!"

I was glad when Richard showed up on TNG because I'd admired his work for over 20 years at that point.

Re: Barry Lynch & Richard Lynch

It's funny reading that they cast Richard Lynch in Gambit despite his career in schlock movies. If I see him in something else (such as MST3K's Werewolf episode), he's always Baran to me.

I had no idea those two were brothers. Richard definitely got all the "cool voice" genes.

Re: Barry Lynch & Richard Lynch

I always thought of Richard as the guy you'd get for a villain if Anthony Zerbe was unavailable. Lynch's bad guys were great, because he'd play them big. I first remember seeing him in an early 70s R-rated sex and violence film called Open Season with Peter Fonda and Cornelia Sharpe, a variation on the story "The Most Dangerous Game". Just to be clear, he's the big bad guy.

ETA: Checking IMDB, that was his 3rd film, in 1974. I also saw his first two films, both released in 1973, Scarecrow and The Seven-Ups.

He made for a great heavy.

Of course, if it was David Lynch, we'd see Kyle MacLachlan in fields of wheat, I mean Quadrotriticale.

Did you ever really look at a tribble....
