Black Trek Part 6: Phil Morris
To neglect Phil Morris in this series would be one of the biggest mistakes I could make.
Born 4 April 1959, Phil Morris has played 5 different characters in the prime Star Trek universe, and has acted with a slew of fellow Star Trek actors in other projects, including Justice League (with Michael Dorn and Larry Drake), Smallville (with John Glover, Robert Picardo, and Felicia M. Bell), Seinfield (with Teri Hatcher), and Atlantis: The Lost Empire (with Leonard Nimoy). Morris has also acted and voice-acted for Green Lantern: The Animated Series, Ultimate Spider-Man, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Wolverine and the X-Men, and starred in the 1988-1990 television re-boot of Mission: Impossible.
Phil Morris was a guest star in the Star Trek episode “Miri” along with his sister Iona. He appeared again as Cadet Foster in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. In separate episodes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Morris played a Klingon (Commander Tophok) and a Jem’Hadar (Third Remata’Klan). In Star Trek: Voyager's “One Small Step” Morris acted with and was directed by his peer under acting coach John Lehne, Robert Picardo.
Needless to say…Phil Morris is a nerdy actor who is the envy of every nerdy actor.
