    Trek actors are pretty common on Mission: Impossible, but it always seems more noteworthy when one turns up as a guest agent. In "The Miracle" (Oct. 23, 1971) it's Lawrence Montaigne, who plays an agent who plays a Catholic priest. Wrong Franchise Note: Also guesting Billy Dee Williams!

    My favorite was when Eddie Paskey was on the M:I team as an actor whose role in the mission was to be a stand-in for someone else. I choose to believe that he was playing himself.

    Maybe they should have cast Bronson as Elias Sandoval ;)

    Not an actor appearance, but last week's 50th anniversary episode of Adam-12, "The Search," had Malloy injured off-road with a wrecked squad car after a high-speed pursuit on Griffith Park Drive. The radio was malfunctioning so that he was able to receive but not send, so he used the wires to send an SOS of static bursts. Once Reed picked this up, he narrowed down Malloy's location and condition by asking a series of questions and employing the Pike Method--one for yes, two for no.

    Both she and her husband turned up in bit parts in the movie Scrooged as a homeless couple-sadly, this was the last role for her, as she died sometime after filming of it wrapped. Her death is mentioned in the end credits of the movie.

    According to IMDb, Cloud William is in there, too. However, since it's a Randolph Scott movie, and Jenson is credited as "Outlaw," his appearance may be pretty brief.

    Edit:
    He'd be one of Lee Van Cleef's henchmen.

    He was probably with Lee Van Cleef's gang but they were mostly in wide shots and I did not spot him.

    As far as I could tell on a skim-through, only one of the outlaws had any lines (mostly in a short scene where Van Cleef gets to speechify that he's realized Randolph Scott is setting a trap for him), and it wasn't Jenson. Roy's role was strictly a "guy who's one of the gang, moving around in the background" part.

    Kathie Browne and John Hoyt both think Kolchak is crazy in the very last Night Stalker episode, "The Sentry," which was basically the same concept as Trek's "Devil in the Dark," except with a giant alligator-man costume that even Irwin Allen would have rejected.
