Galactica Actors in Other Roles

Post by oneofbaltarsfewfans » Tue Sep 26, 2017 10:54 pm

So we know the well known. Lorne Greene as Pa Cartwright, John Colicos as Kor, Dirk Benedict as Face.

But I recently stumbled across the CBC show "Dr Simon Locke, Police Surgeon" from the 70s. John Colicos, in his faithful "villain of the week"!style, played a legit off the rocker crime lord out to get Dr. Locke for sending him to a mental hospital for 4 years instead of prison.
I thought John Colicos was great at playing villains, but playing a crazy crime boss has to be one of the best things I have ever seen. There were moments I was literally like "oh my gosh, is he acting?"
The episode is on YouTube. Look it up.

"Perhaps now you see why the Imperious Leader put me in command."

Herb Jefferson was Roy Dwyer in Rich Man, Poor Man the series and follow up! He also made an appearance in the first season of The Bionic woman! Richard Hatch was a regular in the final series of The Streets of San Francisco playing Dan Robbins I believe! Laurette Spang made an appearance in the first season of The six Million Dollar Man as a stewardess in Survival of The Fittest! John Colicos made three appearances as Kor in Star Trek:Deep space Nine as well as in Star Trek's errand of mercy in 1967!

Dirk Benedict was a co-star of the 1974 series "Chopper One."

John Colicos also appeared in a Wonder Woman episode playing (naturally) a villain.

Maren Jensen and Anne Lockhart both guest-starred on that other Glen Larson show "The Hardy Boys Mysteries."

Laurette Spang appeared in three different Happy Days episodes, playing (as I recall) two of Richie's girlfriends and one of Fonzie's. Anne Lockhart was also in the Happy Days episode "Three on a Porch."
