Almost Human. Just another in a long line of really good sci-fi shows FOX has cancelled after one season.
And for some reason, aired that one season’s worth of episodes out of order.

I wasn't aware of that but I didn't have cable at the time so I was downloading them after they'd aired. Now I want to watch it again.

According to IMDB:
Was shown out of order on Fox. To watch the show in the correct order (based on episode list on IMDb) watch: 01,08,06,10,02,03,04,05,09,07,11,12,13

Boy did they botch that lol.

Yeah, it was so dumb.

Fox has done this with several of their shows (which all ended up being cancelled after 1 season).

They dropped the ball again with The Orville, except Seth MacFarlane has enough clout that he just brought it over to Hulu for Season 3. Considering he's been their cash cow for the last 20+ years it seems like a really stupid business decision on their part.

What about Christopher Lambert? I've always loved his movies.

I'm not sure if you guys noticed this, but Giancarlo Esposito is making a late-career run at this. He's been in several Batman vehicles, and recently has a large role in the Boys and in the Mandalorian.

I don't know if anyone picked Pedro Pascal in this thread, but if you did, good on you. The dude is rapidly rising in the ranks of high profile nerd fiction. He's left a large mark on Star Wars, has appeared in DC, was in Game of Thrones, and is about to star in what I'm sure will be a massive post apocalyptic hit, Last of Us.

If you include voice acting and TV shows, I'd have to submit Nathan Fillion.

His IMDB is a virtual nerd paradise.
a lot of the American dub anime voice over actors would count - it's a relatively small circle

Steve Blum is definitely on the list

Haven't sifted through them all yet, but Jeff Goldblum has a lot of credits in sci-fi and horror. Not all that many starring vehicles for him, though. But besides his Jurassic Park franchise work:

Invasion of the Body Snatchers
Buckaroo Bonzai
Transylvania 6-5000
The Fly
Earth Girls are Easy
Powder
Independence Day
(and the sequel)
Thor: Ragnarok
It's not every day that a three-year-old post gets a bunch of new likes :)

He's also pretty cool in We Can Be Heroes - it's a kids/tweens flick made by Robert Rodriguez. My kids love it and I have seen it about five times. When we watched The Mandalorian, they recognized him when he took the mask off. I was proud.



They also love Rodriguez's other movies, the Spy Kids franchise and Sharkboy and Lavagirl - I have seen them all.

No love for Christopher Lloyd? Check his IMDB creds - sci-fi and fantasy up the wazoo.

He’s also playing the main villain in the upcoming Far Cry 6 game

Once you start doing Asimov you can be in contention (based on how prolific Asimov was)...

Jared Harris:
Foundation, The Expanse, Fringe, Morbius

Lee Pace:
Foundation, GotG, The Hobbit,
