RIP Theodore Bikel

Theodore Bikel, who played Worf's father, has passed away.

Theodore Bikel, a prolific performer and political activist who created the role of Captain Georg Von Trapp in the original Broadway production of The Sound of Music and defined the role of Tevye the Milkman during more than 2,200 performances of Fiddler on the Roof, has died. He was 91.

Bikel died of natural causes on Tuesday morning at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, publicist Harlan Boll announced.


Everyone, join me in honoring this amazing talent.

It's so sad. He has a safe place in Sto'Vo'Kor....

He was a major figure in the '60s Folk Revival scene and in Yiddish music.

And he was the smarmy Hungarian dialect coach in MY FAIR LADY.

Uncle Yossel!
I fail to comprehend your indignation, sir. I have simply made the logical deduction that you are a liar.

Re: RIP Theodore Bikel

Don't forget his roles in The Twilight Zone (Oliver Crangle in 'Three O'Clock') and his role as the rabbi who has to give Susan Ivanova bad news about her dad on the 'TKO' episode of Babylon 5.

Rest in peace, Theo/Sergei/Rabbi Koslov. I'm sure that Worf's giving a Klingon yell someplace in your memory, and Susan's sitting Shiva for you.
