Stars You Didn’t Know Were in ‘Star Trek’

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Tom Hardy. Kelsey Grammer.

They’re some of the biggest names in film and television, and all have something in common: guest starring roles on “Star Trek.”

Some characters weren’t too much of a stretch: Johnson played an alien gladiator. But do you recognize a slim Tom Hardy as a Romulan warlord? And you won’t believe the number of celebrities who have played the ridge-headed Klingons: Christopher Plummer, Christopher Lloyd, and John Tesh to name a few.

Plenty of actresses have also ventured where “no one (previously “no man”) has gone before.”

A young Kirsten Dunst appeared on “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” as did Ashley Judd and Teri Hatcher. And long before she appeared opposite Patrick Stewart in the “X-Men” movies, Famke Janssen played his love interest on the show.

As the sci-fi franchise celebrates its 50th anniversary on September 8, we look back at the various celebrities who have had cameos.
