One of my least favourite Deep Space 9 characters is Odo, played by René Auberjonois. This is unfortunate since the man has a reputation of being one of the nicest celebrities on the convention circuit. Part of my hang up is that Odo seldom shifted shape due to budget restrictions. But also, in my mind Auberjonois will always be Clayton Endicott III from Benson.
He has other Star Trek credits:
Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country as Colonel West
Star Trek: Enterprise: Oasis as Ezral
His other appearances were The Begotten, Crossfire, and Shakaar. For some reason, I thought he was on many, many more episodes.
HEY! Is that Stephen Macht in the MSW episode Moving Violation?
It is! He has five MSW episodes on his imdb profile:
Track of a Soldier -- Arthur Wainwright
Bloodlines -- Lloyd
A Killing in Vegas -- Frank Stinson
Moving Violation -- Attorney Jason Farrell
Capitol Offense -- Congressman Dan Keppner
[In Track of a Soldier]
He has two Star Trek: Deep Space Nine credits:
Ray Buktenica was Deyos in "By Inferno's Light." On MSW he was Kyle Laughlin in "Something Borrowed, Someone Blue."
The character of Cal Hudson in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episodes "The Maquis, Part I" and "The Maquis, Part II" was played by Bernie Casey. Over on Murder, She Wrote he was Doc Evans in Three Strikes, You're Out. He shared screen time with Robert Mandan who played Irving Randolph. Mandan was Kotan Pa'Dar in the episode called "Cardassians."
Frozen Stiff was a Murder, She Wrote episode based on a Ben & Jerry's type ice cream company. One of the main characters was Larry Armstrong (aka Leonard Atkins) and played by Bill Smitrovich. He was in the DS9's Past Tense: Part 1 and Part 2 as Webb. It's a really excellent episode, and I highly recommend it.
In the same MSW episode Gregory Itzin appears as Ralph Brewer.
His Star Trek credits are:
Robert Curtis-Brown was Vedek Sorad in "Sanctuary." He later appears in the Star Trek: Voyager episode "Natural Law" as a Ledosian ambassador. His MSW credits are:
Death by Demographics -- Bud Forbes
Twice Dead -- David Randall
Murder on the Thirtieth Floor -- Steve DiNapoli
The credits for DS9's Profit and Loss and MSW's Proof in the Pudding include Heidi Swedberg. In the former she was Rekelen and in the latter Lorna Thompson.
John Glover pops up in "When Thieves Fall Out" on MSW as Andrew Durbin. When he appeared on screen, I immediately recognized him as Verad from "Invasive Procedures."He has one other MSW credit: One White Rose for Death (Franz Mueller).
One other Deep Space 9 series regular popped up on Murder She Wrote. "See you in Court Baby" featured Nana Visitor as insurance investigator, Marcia McPhee.
Hopefully next week, I'll be posting about Voyager. But don't hold your breath. (Sorry.)
