Why he might be annoying:

    He credited his majoring in drama to a professor who ‘took advantage of my natural show-offness.’

    He was the star of a long-running ad campaign for TWA.
    He only got his best-remembered role, Spock’s half-brother Sybok, because the producers’ first choice, Sean Connery, was committed to filming ‘Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.’
