According to WikiPedia, Herd made is film debut in a little known film called Hercules in New York (1970), which starred some other actor of whom I've never heard and who has since faded off into obscurity.

Erm. "Some other actor of whom I've never heard and who has since faded off into obscurity"?!

Oh wait. *narrows eyes* I see what you did there.

For the record, an absolutely terrible film. I believe I saw the dubbed version; and it wasn't dubbed well.

Obviously, I was referring to James Karen.

Until recently, I believe there only was the dubbed version. I think the film is SO BAD that it bends the BAD-GOOD continuum until BAD and GOOD become one and the same.

In fact, I believe Hercules in New York is the central to the plot of the next Star Trek movie.

Having seen both versions, I think the dubbing is what makes it fall into the "so bad it's good" category for me. Without the dubbing, the film is cringeworthy.

Then again, having seen Hercules in New York more than once, I didn't realize Richard Herd was even in the movie. I guess I'll always picture him as John from V.

Unless the pirates become pirate cowboys and kidnap Ted Danson's wife, I wouldn't worry too much about it. Worked for LOTR at least, but then again, IIRC, they were working from some pre-written source material.
