Just heard of this;

LOS ANGELES (AP) The actor who played the original Klingon on TV's "Star Trek" has died.

A longtime friend and spokesman for Michael Ansara says the actor died Wednesday at his home in Calabasas, Calif. after a long illness. He was 91.

Besides playing Kang the Klingon in various "Star Trek" series, Ansara appeared on dozens of TV shows, including "Broken Arrow," ''Law of the Plainsman," ''I Dream of Jeannie," ''Hawaii 5-0" and "Murder, She Wrote."

His film credits include "Julius Caesar," ''Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea," ''The Greatest Story Ever Told" and "The Comancheros" with John Wayne.

RIP Kang.

I remember him most fondly as Mr. Freeze on the 90s Batman cartoon.  He had the perfect voice for the role.  RIP.

There was also a great episode of the original Outer Limits he played in called "Soldier Of The Future".   Here's a small snippet:

Hate to correct people , but Jon Colicos  portrayed Kor , which was the first Klingon shown on screen.     

Amsara   did his share of bad  movies ,,   remember the Manitou.

R.I.P. Michael Ansara, a familiar face in so many great character roles.
