    As he got older, he may have lost his looks, but his acting only improved.

    He will be missed.

    Who is going to step up and be more than just a pretty face before the cameras?

    :cry:

    I remember him with affection for Mission Impossible, but The Majestic with Jim Carrey (Jim showing he can actually act) was brilliant. RIP

    Apparently he was Gene Roddenbury's first choice for the role. He had a respectable track record in shows like 'The Twilight Zone' and 'Outer Limits'. I saw a repeat many years ago of 'The Man Who Was Never Born' (Outer Limits) in which he played a mutated man and acted wonderfully through a full face disfiguring makeup - The Man Who Was Never Born - Wikipedia
