Skip Homeier

Actor -- via the Hollywood Reporter. One of the great B-movie villains. Homeier started off in radio at age 11 in "Portia Faces Life," in 1941. He made his big break playing a kid Nazi in "Tomorrow, the World!" on Broadway in 1943. He became a child star after reprising te role on film the next year. He graduated to juvenile delinquents, then cowboys, good and bad. He appeared in not one but TWO original "Star Trek" episodes, as Melakon the Nazi schemer in "Patterns of Force" and the deluded Dr. Sevrin in "The Way to Eden."  A solid performer adept at portraying troubled souls who racked up over a gross of credits.
