The Filmography of
Robert Picardo

[Flag Campaign icon]
Support Freedom




This is the filmography of the incredible and versatile actor, Robert Picardo. "Star Trek" fans will know him best as the Holodoc on the awesome sci-fi spin-off "Star Trek: Voyager". Television fans will also know him as Dr. Dick Richard on the Emmy award-winning "China Beach", or as the much-feared high school gym teacher, Coach Ed Cutlip, on "The Wonder Years". Fans of the stage will know him as Jud Templeton in Bernard Slade's "Tribute" or as Dr. McCaskill in "The Waiting Room". And true movie fans will know him as The Cowboy in "Innerspace", or as Frank Govers in "Frame Up, or even as an interviewer in "Star 80". But what true Robert Picardo fans will realize is his fantastic ability to entertain. The man can act, sing, vocalize, write, and direct and he does so with his own unique, amazing talent. Bob is certainly one of the best entertainers I've ever seen, on film or on television (sorry, Bob, I haven't had the opportunity to catch one of your plays, but I'm positive your performances on stage are just as good as anything on film). Although I haven't had the chance to meet him (not yet, anyway), I am certain he is a wonderful personality and a great human being. Until I meet him, and even after I meet him, I will continue to watch my favorite actor grace any project he does with his talent. And, Bob, whether you see this or not, I want you to know that when I become an actor, you will have been a huge inspiration. Keep up the excellent work!



Something completely unrelated -- my DUCKTALES page!



Born: October 27, 1953

Place of Birth: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Education: William Penn Charter School; Yale University

Spouse: Linda

Children: 2

Current Residence: Los Angeles, California

Tidbits: Entered Yale as a Pre-Med major; enjoys the music of Van Morrison; has his own recipe, a pasta dish known as Picardo's Pennette; biggest charity is the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation; was one of the last two people to hear or see actor John Candy alive; drives a Mercedes-Benz; owns two talented parrots; made his stage debut in the Penn Charter School production of "Box and Cox"; first television debut was a guest-shot in the series "Kojak"; has appeared in almost all of Joe Dante's motion pictures; originally tried out for the part of Neelix when auditioning for "Star Trek: Voyager". (Oddly enough, Bob had appeared in the film "Wagons East" - which starred the fore-mentioned John Candy - which also featured Ethan Phillips, who would end up playing Neelix on "Voyager".)

I would personally like to congratulate Robert Picardo for his extraordinary performance on the special "Star Trek" edition of the TV game show "The Weakest Link." Although he did not receive the title of the "strongest link," which went to LeVar "Geordi La Forge" Burton, Bob still turned out a marvelous performance of wit and cunning. He and Burton were the two strongest links - the others having been voted off! Congratulations, Bob! Somehow, I knew you wouldn't be one to be voted off. I also congratulate Mr. Burton for his own performance and eventual win in the game, as well as the other players - William "James T. Kirk" Shatner, Denise "Tasha Yar" Crosby, Wil "Wesley Crusher" Wheaton, Roxann "B'Elanna Torres" Dawson, Armin "Quark" Shimerman, and John "Q" de Lancie. I believe they all performed outstandingly despite the constant cold-hearted comments from host Anne Robinson. I would also like to give my condolences to Wil Wheaton's family - that is, after Roxann Dawson gets through with him...
Hmmm...looks like Mrs. Dawson didn't hurt Wil to badly, since the latter will be appearing in the upcoming "Star Trek: Nemesis."
  Anyway, I would like to once again congratulate Mr. Picardo (the man's a genius, so I'll be congratulating him a lot) for his brilliant writing in "The Hologram's Handbook," and his acclaimed performance in the play "A Chorus Line" at the Pasadena Playhouse. Unfortunately, I was not able to see his performance since I am nowhere near California, but I don't need to see it to know that it was a grand performance.

Originally known as Illegal Alien, this film is written and executive produced by original Star Trek series actor Walter Koenig. Robert Picardo was set to star in the film, along with Koenig and another Trek alum, John de Lancie (Q on the various shows).

When originally announced, the film was expected to go into production in November 2003 for an April 2004 release, apparently direct-to-DVD. The plot involved an archeologist who discovers an alien and fights for his discovery's rights in court. The production start date later moved back to January 2004, although the release date remained the same. Shortly thereafter, however, the project seemed to disappear and in 2005, the official site for its production company, Illegal Alien Productions, went down.

This film has since become InAlienable, an incomplete trailer of which was shown by Koenig at the 2007 official Star Trek convention in Las Vegas. According to Koenig, Picardo ultimately had to drop out of the film as he was commited a Trek-related event at the time -- he had to fill in for Koenig on a Trek Cruise when Koenig ditched the cruise to make this film! In addition, de Lancie dropped out as he was unhappy with the changes being made to the film.

Despite this, Koenig still managed to wrangle up a large group of Trek performers for his film, including Marina Sirtis, Alan Ruck, Gary Graham, J.G. Hertzler, and Walter's son, Andrew Koenig. Although Stephen Furst was initially slated to direct, it was ultimately directed by Robert Dyke. Although Bob is not in it, InAlienable still seems like an interesting film. The film is now available for download via the official site, linked above.
