    James Gregory drops in on F Troop again, and buys the town! Carpetbagging, Anyone?

    His henchman there has a speaking part in 2 scenes, but is uncredited. Poor guy.

    I Spy, "Tag You're It" has Peter Duryea as a trainee agent, and Roy Jensen as an agency official.

    The ep, aired in January 1968 and shot in San Francisco, also features a brief scene of the groovy goings-on in the Haight.

    Yes, William Schallert's most miserable role (that I've seen him in at least) must be Nilz Baris, the Federation Undersecretary for Agricultural Affairs in The Trouble with Tribbles! Most other parts I've seen him in he's usually a nice guy! ;)

    Diana Muldaur lights up "This Guy Smith," in season 3 of I Spy.

    The other day I saw Bionic Woman (just the start). It had William Windom, Julie Newmar and Vincent Price (wow).
    Am currently watching a 3-parter (so far) Mission Impossible with Lee Meriwether and of course Leonard Nimoy as Paris

    Lee Meriwether was on a few M:I eps substituting for Cinnamon.

    That episode of The Bionic Woman was called Black Magic I recall and was one of the light hearted episodes!

    Do voice over actors count in 'Surprising Roles'?. If so, there's a young Ted Knight as a bank manager involved in a scheme to rob his bank on this morning's episode of 'Peter Gunn'.

    Did Ted Knight do voice-over on a TOS or TAS episode?

    (Whipping out my new reference book, Star Trek: The Official Guide to The Animated Series) Yes, he voiced faux Carter Winston/Vendorian in TAS The Survivor. According to a passage in the book:

    Ted Knight was a regular on Fantastic Voyage also made by Filmation in 1967!

    Michael Ansara, Warren Stevens and David Apatoshu in a 1970 episode of Name of the Game. Unfortunately I have a homebrew bootleg disk that give deformed screen grabs, and locked up before I could even see Ansara. :/
    In typical 60s/70s disregard, this seems to take place in a South Asian country full of caucasian South Asians from Universal central casting. Opatoshu is a bald-capped Buddhist Monk. The Dragn-Lady-like wife of a murdered government officer is blonde, blue-eyed Gloria Graham. Sigh.

    I'm probably one of the few people left who has never seen 'Cool Hand Luke', and it's airing right now on the 'Movies' network and there's Morgan Woodward as the man in the glasses. Doesn't say a word, but you can tell it's him.

    Lou Antonio's in it, too...in face, he got fourth billing.

    Well, the subject here has been TOS, but I guess TAS falls under the umbrella given the forum focus.

    The "surprising" part has long ago been left behind. Mostly it's a bird spotting guide now. :)
