"Ask not what the role can do for you; ask what you can do for the role."

Ricardo Montalban (November 25, 1920 — January 14, 2009) was a Mexican-American actor who came to fame in the 1970s show Fantasy Island. He was also known as one of the best villains to ever grace the Star Trek franchise, Khan Noonien Singh, from the original episode "Space Seed" and his reprisal of the role in what's widely considered the finest of the original series films Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Younger tropers are most likely to remember him as Grandfather Valentin in the second and third Spy Kids films, or as the voice of recurring Freakazoid! and Kim Possible villains Armondo Guitierrez and Señior Senior Sr., respectively.

Was a spokesperson for Chrysler in the 1980s, which is (supposedly) where "Rich Corinthian leather" comes from.
