BRENT SPINER!


Brent Spiner, The beloved android Data on the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation!    Star Trek: The Next Generation, the sequel to the original television series Star Trek, became hugely popular, moving to the big screen for four films (so far) after its 7-year run on television. Spiner has made cameo appearances in a number of films directed by his friend & old schoolmate Thomas Schlamme (Miss Firecracker, Crazy from the Heart, and Kingfish: A Story of Huey P. Long), and many small roles in more recent films, such as Dude, Where's My Car? and The Master of Disguise. Arguably his most popular film portrayal was Dr. Brakish Okun in Independence Day, a role that elicited his unique eccentricity and sense of humor.
