The Best Star Trek Actor From Each State

Connecticut – Christopher Lloyd

There’s no need to fully get into who Christopher Lloyd is. The man has been in so many feature films and TV shows you’ have trouble keeping count. But one thing we can all agree on is that he’s an incredible actor.

Obviously, Lloyd is probably best known as Doctor Emmett Brown from the Back to the Future movie trilogy. It’s definitely his biggest role, or at least his most recognizable. But it’s not his only iconic role. Old school Trekkies will remember Lloyd from another one of his greatest film roles, taking place in the Star Trek universe.

In Star Trek III: The Search For Spock, Lloyd plays Klingon Commander Kruge. He actually got the role based on a suggestion from Leonard Nimoy, who was a close friend of his. You wouldn’t think the guy who plays Uncle Fester in The Addams Family could do a Klingon so well, but that’s just the acting prowess of Christopher Lloyd.

By playing the villain so incredibly well, Lloyd was a big part of why The Search For Spock is such an awesome movie. And even still, Kruge is one of the most memorable Klingons ever shown on Star Trek.
