As many loyal fans may recognize actor Michael Dorn from his long time portrayal as Lt. Worf from the Star Trek series (appearing in the most episodes of Star Trek on both TV and film than any other character), he’s about to take on a much different role this summer.

Michael called in to the The K-EARTH 101 Morning Show to tell us about his upcoming role  in a limited run of shows of Shakespeare’s romantic comedy As You Like It at the Japanese Gardens.

Michael also talks to us about his famous role in Star Trek and how the show exceeded both his and even the producer’s expectations.

He also tells us a little known fact about his very first movie (uncredited) role as a bodyguard in Rocky and how none of the studios wanted to distribute the film.
