Characer actor Jack Donner is best known for his role as Tal in the original "Star Trek. " Donner got his start in the early days of live television on shows like "Robert Montgomery Presents" and "Armstrong Circle Theatre." Donner's first official credits are the sci-fi horror film "Hand of Death" and the TV drama "Dr. Kildare." He guest-starred on sitcoms like "Get Smart" and "I Dream of Jeannie," and made 11 appearances on "Mission: Impossible." His role as Romulan sub-commander Tal in a 1968 "Star Trek" episode has since gained cult status among fans and was followed years later by a role as a Vulcan Priest in the spinoff "Star Trek: Enterprise." After several more B-movie roles and spots on "Police Story" and "The Streets of San Francisco," Donner became ill and gave up acting in 1977. After recovering--and going to college to become a psychotherapist--he returned to the screen in the mid '90s. He appeared on shows like "Frasier" and starred in the 1999 H.P. Lovecraft adaptation "Cool Air." In 2005 he began a recurring role as a butler on "General Hospital," and participated in daily re-enactments for "The Michael Jackson Trial" in 2005. His film roles also include starring in the straight-to-video thriller "Demon Under Glass" and a small part in the Vince Vaughn comedy "Four Christmases."
