Jonathan Frakes & Wil Wheaton Return To The Small Screen Plus More Star Trek Actor News

Jonathan Frakes & Wil Wheaton Return To The Small Screen Plus More Trek Star News.

First off, if you're reading this right after it hits the web and you live in the Mountain or Pacific time zones, you still have time to catch it. Tonight at 9pm, wonder boy and nerd impresario Wil Wheaton will be returning to TNT's hit show "Leverage". So, run, set your DVR and then come back and read the rest of the article. We set? Good. Wil's not the only TNG alumni to be returning to the small screen. Number One, or Jonathan Frakes as some folks call him, will be guest starring on "NCIS: Los Angeles" this Tuesday (December 14th) at 9/8central. As many of you know, Jonathan Frakes has been behind the camera for several years with only the sporadic appearance in the limelight. Keep an eye out for him as Navy Commander Dr. Stanfill. Unfortunately there's no news on how large the role will be or if Frakes will see much screen time, but if you miss the airing, you can always catch it streaming on

Speaking of the small screen, well, an even smaller screen, 'Gunfight at the O.K. Corral" starring Kirk Douglas, Burt Lancaster, Dennis Hopper, and DeForest Kelley (as Morgan Earp) is now available for purchase on Apple's iTunes store. Here's your chance to catch De Kelley in his pre-Trek haunts; Westerns. He was a natural gun slinger...

In other news, LeVar Burton will be attending the "Hollywood on the Shore" gala in March to help benefit the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and it's annual fundraiser for student scholarships. Also in attendance; Pam Grier, Sharon Stone, Tyne Daily, & David Allen Grier. Tickets for this year's star-studded event are on sale. For $150, an Oscar ticket gets a supporter a seat at the March 5 gala for a dinner-dance in the Student Services Center on the UMES campus. The affair promises guests the "red-carpet treatment" that includes hors d'oeuvres and a gourmet meal with celebrities, live entertainment, and live and silent auctions. A $500 VIP ticket adds a March 4 celebrity reception in Ocean City at the Courtyard Marriott along with an up-close-and-personal reception with Hollywood guests before the gala.
