LOS ANGELES – A Los Angeles city councilman says Ricardo Montalban has died. He was 88. The Mexican-born actor, who became a star in splashy MGM musicals and later the wish-fulfilling Mr. Roarke in TV's "Fantasy Island," died at his home in Los Angeles, City Council President Eric Garcetti said Wednesday.

 

Montalban lived in Garcetti's district in Los Angeles

Truly a sad day for all of Trekdom. We should take comfort in the fact that he lived a very full life.

Ricardo Montalbon was also my favorite Trek Movie villain. A real talent. He will be missed.

Best of Both Worlds and The Wrath of Kahn were THE pivotal moments in Star Trek history. In both cases the franchise was all but dead and strong performances gave it the boost it needed to recapture and expand the fan base.

Not to take away from his portryal of Khan, but has anyone seen the show "Fantasy Island" ever being re-run on any cable/sat stations? :)

BTW, Ricardo Montalbon was not only my favorite "Trek Villian" ....

 

Looking back over the "TOS" guest actors list, WHO WAS BETTER?????

 

He breathed more life into the charactor of Khan, and the episode of "Space Seed" than all of the series guest stars COMBINED!

 

Then in "Wrath of Khan".........HA!....... STOLE THE WHOLE DAMN MOVIE!

 

Whos face pops into your head when you hear "Star Trek 2"??? It aint Billy!!......Even Spock's death is almost an after thought because Ricardo was so damn over powering in that movie!

 

"From Hells heart, I stab at thee.........

for hates sake, I spit my last breath at thee!"

 

Awesome!

 

Rest in Peace Ricardo, in "Corinthian Leather" STYLE!
