    Henry McInnies Jr, Nerys, who used to act under the name of Jeffrey Hunter and whose most famous character after Jesus was Capt.Christopher Pike of Star Trek fame! :D

    I heard Pike was Spock's bro. Twice removed. Or something. No? (I haven't seen any of this season of DISC yet - all kidding aside I hope that it is good.)

    Besides Jesus and Pike, Hunter's best known role was in The Searchers (1956) with John Wayne.

    Speaking of Pike, I'm rewatching "The Menagerie " right now.

    Just as Spock is telling Pike "I must do this" in the Starbase 11 sickbay, right before the opening credits, you can see a tear streaming down his right cheek as he blinks "no". Amazing...never noticed that before.

    Some of those shots of injured Pike that have been turning up lately on the net seem very realistic when seen up close! His skin is seemingly extremely withered!

    it'd be best if you avoid the 1080p version of the episode then. :lol:

    Captain Pike used to creep me out as a child back in the seventies! It was a big shock to eventually find out he wasn't played by Jeffrey Hunter in the Menagerie and that the young Ensign from Arena and Taste of Armageddon, DePaul, was under the make-up instead! :crazy:

    There was another actor, Robert Powell, who played Jesus in a television miniseries. After that role he kind of/sort of faded into oblivion. After you've played the Son of God, where else can your career go except down, down, down.

    The tear is hard to see. Watched the Cage last night to prepare for DSC. Love the scene of Spock i n the redressed Engine Room.

    The next character he played was Phoebus in a TV movie version of The Hunchback of Notre Dame!

    Yeah, I still remember running to the TV to smash the "on/off" button when Pike's face was revealed for the first time in that episode. Scared the crap out of me as a child.

    That didn’t bother me so much. Pike in Hell, though, that was definitely a behind the sofa* moment.

    *a good ten years before I saw my first Dalek, mind you.
