Hertzler: Being Different Wins Role

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011

After more than a dozen attempts to land a Star Trek role, J.G. Hertzler scored by thinking outside of the box.

Although he had worked on Star Trek before (Star Trek: The Next Generation: Emissary) Hertzler found it difficult to land the next Star Trek role. “I’d auditioned for Trek a lot,” he said. “I’d guess about fourteen times. I’d come in, punch my card and people would say, ‘Good to see you again. What are you reading this time?’ I’d say, ‘Oh, a Cardassian,” or whatever it was. I finally told my agent, ‘Don’t send me up to Star Trek anymore. They’ve seen everything I could possibly ever do and I haven’t gotten a role. Don’t waste their time or my time.’”
