And don't forget Rene's cameo in The Undiscovered Country as the Starfleet admiral who tells the Federation president that in a war with the Klingons, Starfleet will "Clean their chronometers."

This has just been a dreadful week for deaths in the Star Trek family. I see Marina Sirtis announced her husband died in his sleep. Does anyone know if he had been ill?

Yet another regrettable loss. He was great in DS9 and BOSTON LEGAL, and he was also in the M*A*S*H film, among many others. He even voiced Peter Parker, early in his career!

I totally forgot about his early voice work as Peter Parker on that LP record.  I still have a copy somewhere!

He had quite a few DCAU/Timmverse voice credits as well:  Desaad and Steppenwolf, not to mention Kirk Langstrom's F-I-L, Dr. March from the first BTAS episode -- and from the Green Lantern Justice League episodes he's Kanjar-Ro, Galius Zed, and even one of the Guardians.

He will be sorely missed.

It's strange, seeing Rene on BENSON is almost jarring because he's playing pretty close to his real self and real voice -- no heavy makeup or accents.   I have to do a similar double take when I see James Cromwell or Brent Spiner on NIGHT COURT.

Very sad... one of the very first movies I'd ever seen was the 1976 KING KONG, in which he had a fun role, and he'd been a familiar face ever since.

Same. Some of his characters leaned toward being uptight (Clatyon, Odo). His Bagley character in KONG, not so much.

One of those actors that when the name was seen in opening credits, the face appeared on the screen, or that voice was heard, I could count on the role being done well.

Damn good actor. One of my favorites. Enjoyed all his work. Very sorry to hear this.

He had one of the standout lines in M*A*S*H.

Hot Lips: I wonder how a degenerate person like that was able to attain a position of authority in the Army Medical Corps.

Dago Red: He was drafted.

Quite possibly the best line in the movie!

I had no idea he had been in so many roles, quite a career. Peace to him and
his family.

When I was younger, I resented him for what he'd done to Kelly on an episode of Charlie's Angels and considered him one of the most despicable of the standard "bad guys" we'd see on television in those days. Eventually I saw him in enough parts without a villainous connotation that my younger self was able to "forgive" him, but for a while there, I was mad at him from the moment he appeared onscreen. :-)

His Odo was one of the few things I genuinely enjoyed about DS9 when it debuted. Ultimately, Odo was not enough to keep me watching, but I continued to enjoy him in other parts over the years. I kind of felt that I owed it to him to give him a fair shake in other roles after that rocky start... :-)

According to Rene the 'best line in the movie' was actually a deadpan adlib he made during rehearsals that Altman liked so much they kept it in the film!

A most excellent Odo.  

Farewell,
