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."
