RIP Khan

RIP to one of the most fun actors to be around evah. Montalban could put life into the most mundane of characters, and turn a one guest starring role into the role that would be one of the most identifiable in motion picture history.

His work as Khan, in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, was taken from an episode almost 15 years old, from the original Star Trek TV series. Outside of the regular cast, people point to him as the most memorable of actors to appear on the show or in the movies afterward.

As Fantasy Island's Mr. Roarke, you always had the sense that Khan was lurking about, but more playful than malevolent.

Rest in Peace, Ricardo.
