Creator/RobertVaughn was billed as the star, cast as the American, Napoleon Solo, U.N.C.L.E.'s top enforcement agent. His sidekick, Russian native Illya Kuryakin, was intended by the producers to be merely an occasionally recurring minor character, but fans became so smitten with Creator/DavidMcCallum's portrayal of Kuryakin that he [[EnsembleDarkhorse almost immediately became a series regular]], [[BreakoutCharacter was billed as a co-star early in the first season]], and rose to equal billing with Vaughn by the second season. Completing the regular U.N.C.L.E. contingent was veteran character actor Leo G. Carroll, cast as Alexander Waverly, U.N.C.L.E.'s chief in their New York headquarters.

* SpecialGuest: Especially during its heyday, the show was able to draw a lot of high-powered talent as guest stars. Creator/VincentPrice, Creator/GeorgeSanders, Creator/WilliamShatner and Creator/LeonardNimoy (their first pairing, before ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries''), Barbara Feldon (before she hit it big with ''Series/GetSmart''), Yvonne Craig (before ''Series/{{Batman}}''), Cesar Romero ([[Series/{{Batman}} pre]]-ComicBook/TheJoker), Jack Lord (pre-''Series/HawaiiFiveO''), Creator/JoanCollins, Ivan Dixon, Creator/RichardKiel, Julie London, Creator/LeslieNielsen, Creator/JoanBlondell, Creator/JanetLeigh, Anne Francis, Senta Berger, Jill Ireland (at the time David [=McCallum=]'s wife), Creator/AngelaLansbury, Creator/KurtRussell, Eleanor Parker (who had the honor of being the series' last villainess), Dorothy Provine, [[Music/SonnyBono Sonny]] and Music/{{Cher}} and Nancy Sinatra, among others. Honorable mentions: Elsa Lanchester (of ''Film/BrideOfFrankenstein'') as Dr. Agnes Dabree in "The Brain-Killer Affair" (Season 01, Ep. 23). Still [[NightmareFuel inspiring nightmares]] years later... and Creator/JoanCrawford, who had a cameo as Andrea True in "The Five Daughters Affair". It was a blink-and-you'll-miss-it kind of thing in the TV episode, but her part was beefed up a little for the movie version, ''The Karate Killers''.
