Happy Birthday, Michael Dorn December 9, 2011

by TrekMovie.com Staff , Filed under: Celebrity,DS9,TNG , trackback

Today, December 9th, is the birthday for the man who appeared in more Star Trek than any other actor. Michael Dorn, who played Worf on TNG and DS9, turns 59 today. So we here at TrekMovie.com wish him a big happy birthday.

 

Happy Birthday, Michael Dorn

Michael Dorn’s Klingon-in-Starfleet Worf appeared in all seven seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation, plus four seasons of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, along with the four TNG movies. Dorn even showed up in one of the TOS movies too (Star Trek VI), playing one of Worf’s ancestors.

This video shows how Dorn’s Worf is one of the most quotable characters in the Star Trek franchise:

In the last decade, Dorn has kept very busy, primarily doing voice work for animated video games and animated TV series. Dorn is also appearing in a recurring role as a psychiatrist on the current season of the hit ABC show Castle (see clip below…via Hulu…sorry non-USA people).

He also played a Starfleet security officer in Star Trek III — so that’s two TOS movies.

Happy Birthday. He’s nice at a convention and one of Trek’s best characters!

16. Steve P - December 10, 2011

Do you think he’ll ever come out?

17. Anna - December 10, 2011

Happy birthday Mr. Worf, you’re the best!

Best birthday wishes to one of Trek’s real pilots!

John Travolta is featured in ads for high-end aviator-type watches because he has a personal airliner that he personally flies for fun. Someone should feature Dorn for something similar, made by Omega or Rolex or similar!

Trek rules!

One of my favorite Worf quotes:

“Good tea….nice house.” (as he’s sitting on a sofa; holding a dainty cup and saucer) :)

Classic

Worf is probably the only TNG character — okay, Picard too — who could appear in any new Trek incarnation, or even this next movie, with the lamest, most unlikely storyline, and I would be thrilled.

Heck, couldn’t a third ship have gotten caught in that damned Hobus Star singularity… with Picard, Worf and, heck, Guinan… with the mysteriously resurrected but now hunky, hairy (and box office draw) Shinzon clinging to the outside?

I’ve had a LOT of sugar today. And maybe some bourbon.

24. Hat Rick - December 15, 2011

Dorn strikes me from watching him at conventions as such a classy yet regular-seeming guy. Someone with a lot of heart and intelligence and warmth, and humor.

He’s about as dissimilar from the humorless and irritable Worf as one can imagine. The fact that he made it work so well — being Worf — is a testament to his acting ability.

Kudos to the Klingon, Worf, played by an actor a Klingon could truly respect and admire.

25. TK421 - December 18, 2011

he should play Dr. M’Benga for the next Star Trek movie.

Darn, how did I not notice this post…

Happy incredibly belated birthday, Mr. Dorn (aka Dorny). You’re my favorite Klingon.
