      I found out that most of the actors in GK2: Beast Within, such as Dean Erickson, have little to no other significant roles in movies or shows. Dean has been in Frasier in 3 episodes….but that’s about it. That’s too bad, because I thought some of them could do well in movies…yet they must not have been given any chances..
      What do you think?

      (re: The Beast Within Actors) The actors in The Beast Within havent got very important roles in movies or tv shows, i know about Peter Lucas (Von Glower) appearing in Indepence day, Walker, and some shows more. And recently i have seen Mr.Smith (dont know his real name) acting in 3rd rock from the sun

      (re: re: The Beast Within Actors) Ya, I knew that Peter Lucas was the most famous of all the actors…As for Mr. Smith (I don’t his name either!) he was also in Seinfeld…George asked him for the death certificate. Verner Huber was also in Seinfeld…

      (re: The Beast Within Actors) Ron House, who played Policeman Fink, was one of the co-writers and main actors in the wonderful British comedy BULLSHOT – a parody of the BULLDOG DRUMMOND series. Apparently, House was in a theater group together with Alan Shearman and Diz White, and the three of them became famous for their stage version of BULLSHOT. George Harrison produced the film version.

      (re: The Beast Within Actors) who’s policeman fink? the only cop i remember in GK2 is leber.
      von glower had a tiny part in an episode of John Doe last season, and i’m sure i saw herr huber as a patient on ER but he wasn’t credited so i’m not sure it was him.
      it is too bad none of them have had any significant roles. dean erikson says on his website that he expected his wrok on GK2 to help him get into movies, but casting directors don’t take work on a computer game seriously…

      And did you know that one of the actresses was in a James Bond movie? Yeah. The German news reporter was played by Mary Stavin, who appeared in the 1985 Bond movie A View to a Kill. She’s the agent in the iceburg submarine in the beginning of the movie. 🙂

      Forget to say, Leber also appeared in Naked Gun.

      (re: re: The Beast Within Actors) Yes I believe that was herr huber on ER. I never saw his name on the credits either but am sure it was him.

      (Huber on ER, Smith on Seinfeld) Huber (Kay E. Kuter) has a pretty impressive filmography… he did made an appearance at ER once, but participated in over 30 movies, and add countless appearances in various episodes of many shows (ER, Seinfeld, Fraiser, X-Files, Star Trek TNG, much more..)
      Smith (Bruce Ed Morrow) didn’t do too well… he was on Rosewell (1994) but as an alien clown…

      (re: Huber on ER, Smith on Seinfeld) the Internet Movie Database claims that Gerde went on to play the aunt in My Big Fat Greek Wedding… but they’re wrong. two different actresses with the same name…

      (re: Huber on ER, Smith on Seinfeld) i’m watching a seinfeld episode right now with Huber in it! george wants to convert to some orthodox religion so he can keep dating a girl. Huber plays the grand priest guy.
      I don’t think I’ve ever seen this one before…

      (re: re: Huber on ER, Smith on Seinfeld) I saw that yesterday too! 🙂
      Too bad Dean Erickson or Peter Lucas don’t star in their own big movies. I think that Dean himself said that he puts “Beast Within” on his credits, but it does him more harm than good. If only hollywood knew how much sierra fans like Gabriel Knight 2…..they should at least be shown some of the videos…

      Did anyone else see Von Glower on ER last night? He didn’t have a very big part and  sadly was killed. I saw the his name in the beginning credits and was hoping it was the same Peter Lucas and it was. Also saw Mrs.Smith (Judith Drake) in a jiffy lube commercial a few days ago. I wonder if she did a tarot card reading for them!

      Joanne Takahashi has 2 lines in the movie “The Late Shift” in the very beginning as a waitress. When I first saw it I only was watching it to see her part, but its actually a pretty good movie, about Jay Leno and David Letterman trying to get the hosting job for the Tonight Show. Unfortunately, she was also in a episode of a soft-porn tv show on Showtime. Luckily theres a scene with her fully clothed you can watch. I keep seeing Mrs. Smith in a ton of commercials as well, a insurance one being the only one I remember. Peter Lucas was also in the TV-Movie of Into Thin Air based on the book about people who died on Mount Everest as a pretty boy-type guide.

      Well, I know Joanne Takahashi (who plays Grace) had a VERY (cough, cough) interesting role in an ep of the Showtime series Women Stories of Passion. Being that I remember having a crush on her when GK2 first came out, I kind of enjoyed that ep…

      but I won’t go into too many detials, lest I get kicked off the board… 🙂

      It is sad that no game-actor gets to be recognised and start a career from these games 🙁 they get getting always minor parts and even soft-port in order to be slightly more famous

      soemthing similar i remember about that girl from Phantasmagoria II, who posed nude for Playboy

      PS. i liked Grace too 😉

      They’ve been showing Knight Rider reruns here and I just saw the guy who played Leber in a two-parter called “Knight of the Juggernaut”.

      Peter Lucas has played a role in a bunch of very successful Polish movies, the most known of which is Kiler 2.

      And yes, Kay Kuter has passed away on November 12th, 2003 :(.

      If you google Joanne Takahashi (who played Grace), you will see at the top links to some examples of where her career has taken her, as previously mentioned.

      He IS on General Hospital! Same accent but with shorter hair and he’s playing a bad guy. Good eye, Patrick!

      LOL!  Now let’s not tease Patrick’s love for soaps… too much. *evil grin*   Smiley
