Appearing: Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
Dorn first appeared in Rocky as Apollo Creed’s bodyguard, though he was not credited. He also appeared as a guest on the television show W.E.B. in 1978. The producer was impressed with his work, so he introduced Dorn to an agent who then introduced him to acting teacher Charles Conrad to study acting for six months. He then landed a regular role on the television series CHiPs.
Dorn’s most famous role to date is that of the Klingon Starfleet officer Lieutenant (later Lt. Commander) Worf in Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
Dorn has appeared on-screen in more Star Trek episodes and movies as the same character than anyone else: he appeared in 175 episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation (missing only the episodes “Code of Honor”, “Haven”, and “Shades of Gray”), 102 episodes of Deep Space Nine and four Star Trek movies, bringing his total to 281 appearances as Worf. Dorn is also one of six actors to lend his voice to Star Trek: Captain’s Chair, reprising his role of Lieutenant Commander Worf.
Dorn’s appearance in the film Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country was as Colonel Worf, representing Captain James T. Kirk and Dr. Leonard McCoy at their trial on Qo’noS and also unmasking the real assassin, Colonel West.
Dorn directed the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episodes “In the Cards”, “Inquisition” and “When It Rains…”, and the Star Trek: Enterprise episode “Two Days and Two Nights”.
Dorn has appeared as Worf on Webster and Family Guy, the latter along with fellow Star Trek: The Next Generation stars. He had a recurring role on the television series Castle, playing the therapist of NYPD police detective Kate Beckett.
