William Smithers, Captain Merrick in Mannix
Nimoy was in the Wagon Train that MeTV was just airing, playing a Mexican type. He was all "the gringos" this and "the gringos" that.
It surprising how often Nimoy, whose heritage was Ukrainian Jewish, got cast as Latino or Native American.
Ok here is a great one!
On Mannix, episode "To Kill A Writer" 1968 we have Roger Korby (Michael Strong) and Ruk (Ted Cassidy) and Kirk's old love interest Ruth (Shirly Bonn).... Hey what's Ruth doing with Korby? Is she android also?
Too bad Korby and Ruk don't have a scene together and check out the fight between Mannix and Cassidy's character.....listen for a well know sound effect!

Marj Dusay, in line-up...
...and behind bars...
...on suspicion of having assaulted Ken Berry (the accusation being what she's reacting to in the first photo).
Love, American Style, "Love and the Penal Code" (Sept. 17, 1971)
And Carol Wayne!
Jay Robinson as a guillotine consultant who thinks Kolchak is crazy in the Night Stalker episode "Chopper" - about a headless biker out to decapitate the old gang members who decapitated him.
Gotta say the headless biker was horrifying - as in horrifyingly bad. A guy with his shoulders built up over his head. Looked ridiculous. Nowadays a guy with a green sock on his head and bingo!
...offed by Mr. C...!
The Syndicate wasn't big enough for the both of them.
Mission: Impossible, "Blind" (Sept. 18, 1971)
Anthony Call in Fun And Games And Party Favors, an episode of The Fugitive!
Antoinette Bower , "Sylvia" in Hogan's Heroes
Vic Perrin as a small town lawyer with the key to stopping a small town range war in the 1st season Have Gun Will Travel, "Show of Force." Made in 1957 - it's as old as me!
Have William Schallert, Will Travel.
The season 1 episode "The Long Night."
Whit Bissel as the proprietor of Deep West Hardware Store K7 ( ) in the Have Gun Will Travel episode "No Visitors."
The IMF's gonna squeeze 'im 'til he tells 'em where Paris went...
Mission: Impossible, "Encore" (Sept. 25, 1971)
On the 1971 1-season wonder "Bearcats," Leslie Parrish pops up long enough to provide Rod Taylor with someone to avenge.
How about the following..from 1953...this is the only episode known to exist..
Discussed a while back here (link).
Warren Stevens as a cavalry officer trying his best to be a straight arrow, but finally giving in to gold fever, in the 1st season Have Gun Will Travel episode "The Yuma Treasure," written by Gene Roddenberry.
The Bearcats episode "Tiger, Tiger," has Morgan Woodward as a crazy old guy who likes to hunt men, Lawrence Montaigne as a flunky, and Byron Morrow as an Army post commander.
I figured this would be as good a thread as any to post this.
MeTV has launched a new subchannel MeTV+ to air shows in their library that they don't have room for on their regular channel.
I found it last night when I did a re-scan of my antenna last night.
I saw promos for 'The Rookies', 'The Mod Squad', 'Hawaii 5-0', and 'Mission: Impossible'.
More chances to catch TOS Era actors in surprising roles.
