I Didn't Know That Was Him/Her!!?

Postby ori-STUDFARM » Tue Mar 09, 2010 8:20 pm

I was listening to the wonderful StarBase 66 podcast the other day, and they pointed out that the actor that played Percy in Green Mile was also in X Files playing one of my favourite villians, Tooms. He is also in Lost as well....thats 3 things I've seen him in and NEVER made the connection!! I instantly thought, "we need a thread for this" as I am always missing actors/actresses I should know in a variety of programs...

Images in order are Eugene Victor Tooms from X Files, Percy from The Green Mile and finally, Horace in Lost. All played by Doug Hutchinson!!

I've done this in the TV section as I think the majority will have TV connections!!

Here's another that I never noticed before it was pointed out to me the other week...

Jadzia Dax from Star Trek- Deep Space 9 was played by Terry Farrell. But, just before taking the DS9 job, she played the Cat in the second Red Dwarf USA pilot!!

Holly was played by Jane Leeves in both pilot's of Red Dwarf USA (I think it was both). She was made famous as Daphne in Frasier

Speaking of Deep Space Nine (I have just started season two so I am very interested in learning who everybody is), did you know that Armin Shimerman (Quark) also played Principal Snyder on Buffy the Vampire Slayer?

The other surprise I found on IMDB was about Rene Auberjonois (Odo). He was the voice for Chef Louie in The Little Mermaid.

Yeah I knew Terry Farrell was in the pilot, she was also in the 3rd Hellraiser film think it was, she was reeeeaaaally bad - lol.

There are quite a lot of Star Trek actors who turn up in various things, the most prolific I think is Jeffrey Combs who is not only in a whole host of films but plays 2 characters on DS9 (Weyoun and Brunt) and 1 on Enterprise (Shran). Always seems to play a nutter - Reanimator, House on Haunted Hill, The Frighteners.

Michael Dorn who plays Worf does a lot of cartoon voice overs, Cow and Chicken, I Am Weasel, I'm not much of a fan of cartoons but know he's done LOADS more.

My beloved Andrew Robinson who plays Garak is also Scorpio in Dirty Harry and Larry in Hellraiser. He was also in an episode of the X-Files where he played a werewolf.

Surprisingly Patrick Stewart aka Jean Luke 'make it so' Picard does voice overs on American Dad! Avery Bullock-

I could go on and on and oooooooonnnnnnnnn lol. Sorry, I'm such a Star Trek geek - lol.

This is an image of Lenny Von Dolan who played Miles (Moles) Harding in the 80's classic that was Electric Dreams. I discovered recently (whilst researching for the podcast) that he also appeared in Red Dwarf!!...Well....I knew he was in Red Dwarf....what I meant was that I never knew it was "Moles" from Electric Dreams!!

Sorry....couldn't find a clearer image
Image

This is the chap though....although he now has white hair!!

Wow I did not know that Horace and Tooms are the same guy. XFiles and Lost are 2 of my fave shows too. He looks completely different.
