    Absolutely. He had these crazy eyes that elevated his performance.

    My favourite line from Woodward was probably:

    Captain Tracey : They sacrificed hundreds, just to draw us out in the open. And then they came, and they came. We drained four of our phasers, and they still came. We killed thousands and they still came.

    That was a great scene, perfectly played by Woodward.

    But he was always good, and he was almost everywhere on TV during that period — except on The Wild Wild West, for whatever reason, where I thought he would have been a very good fit.

    Very sad news. Enjoyed his two guest roles on Star Trek. He played a good crazy guy ;).

    I'm also a big fan of Dallas and I enjoyed his role as Punk Anderson, a close friend of patriarch Jock Ewing and later friend of Clayton Farlow, Ms. Ellies' 2nd husband.

    What's amazing is he looked almost exactly the same in Dallas, 10 to 15 years later.

    Kirk didn't even have the chance to try his famous flying drop kick either.

    Cloud William also gave Kirk quite a battle in the prison cell, too.
