"Wrath Of Khan" Star Ricardo Montalban Dead At 88

Posted: January 15th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Wrath Of Khan" Star Ricardo Montalban Dead At 88Submit Comment
Ricardo Montalban, the Mexican-born television star and all-time great "Star Trek" screen villain from "The Wrath of Khan," died Wednesday in Los Angeles at the age of 88.

Beginning his career in Mexican movies, Montalban arrived in Hollywood in the mid-1940s, quickly rising to leading-man status in the musicals of the era before embarking on an acting career spanning more than five decades.

Perhaps best known in pop-culture circles as Mr. Roarke on ABC's "Fantasy Island," Montalban also played the honorable animal trainer Armando in "Escape From the Planet of the Apes" and "Conquest of the Planet of the Apes." Some may even remember him from the comedy "The Naked Gun," where he played opposite Leslie Nielsen.

But sci-fi movie fans will always remember his epic, villainous turn as Khan Noonien Singh -- driving Captain James T. Kirk to near-insanity in "Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan."

Montalban is survived by two sons, two daughters and six grandchildren.

He tasks me! He tasks me! Definitely a shame :( As corny as he is, I always enjoyed his stuff, from Trek and Apes to his wonderful Gutierez on Freakazoid.

He will be missed. of course Khan and Vincent Ludwig (Naked Gun) characters were my favorite.

Star of Wrath of Kahn?! Who the f*ck would remember him from that?! He was the STAR of Fantasy Island. His most known role.
