Mandylor's first major role was in the 1989 film Triumph of the Spirit playing a European Jew, which was filmed at the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp. He returned to Los Angeles meeting director Oliver Stone and auditioned and got the role of an Italian count in The Doors (1991). Mandylor landed a leading role in Mobsters playing Mafia boss Frank Costello. He went mentally prepared for the role, telling the Los Angeles Times, "It was interesting that I got that part, because I felt tuned in to gangsters, it was a genre I'd read a lot. When I was 13, I got a job as a dishwasher in a Melbourne nightclub and saw everything there, real gangsters, and had met characters who were dangerous people from an underground world." In 1992 he had a lead role on the CBS television drama, Picket Fences, playing officer Kenny Lacos until the show ended in 1996. Mandylor also had a lead role in the Saw films as Detective Mark Hoffman.

He made his film debut in Hercules in New York (1970), and at one point served as 3rd National Vice President of the Screen Actors Guild. Herd's first major film role was in the thriller The China Syndrome alongside Jane Fonda, Jack Lemmon and Michael Douglas, where he played the character Evan McCormack, the corrupt Chairman of the California Gas & Electric Board. This role helped make him well-known outside the United States.

Jeanne K. Russell best known for playing Dennis's playmate, Margaret Wade, in the television series Dennis The Menace, which was based on the Hank Ketcham comic strip of the same name and aired from 1959 to 1963 on CBS.
Russell was chosen at the suggestion of Jay North, who starred in the role of Dennis, to play his nemesis playmate. She appeared in 31 of the series' 146 episodes over the four-year run of the show.
Russell also appeared in other popular TV shows of the era, including, The Deputy (1959), Assignment: Underwater (1961), Death Valley Days (1961), and The Dinah Shore Show. Russell provided a singing voice in the 1961 Disney movie Babes in Toyland and made an uncredited appearance in the 1963 popular suspense horror film directed by Alfred Hitchcock, The Birds, in which she played a school child. In 1993, she made a cameo appearance in the film version of Dennis the Menace playing one of the Mitchells' neighbors. She has done live theater and sound track work as well as performing as a singer. In the 1990s, Russell was active on the national talk show and news feature circuit.


CHERYL SPARKS was a high school student in 1971 and portrayed "Huey," a Drone robot in Universal's SILENT RUNNING (1972).
SILENT RUNNING is a science fiction story that takes place on the USS Valley Forge, a space freighter leased to a government reforestation project. The Valley Forge and its sister ships carry samples of the last of Earth's plant life under huge geodesic domes. The plants are watched over by a four-person crew, and three robot "Drones," who maintain the ships.
SILENT RUNNING was the first film directed by Douglas Trumbull, who’d supervised the special effects for 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. Trumbull would later direct BRAINSTORM, and supervise the visual effects for CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE, and BLADE RUNNER.
Starring Bruce Dern, Ron Rifkin, Cliff Potts, and Jesse Vint, SILENT RUNNING also features four performers whose faces are never seen. Portraying the Drone robots in the film are Mark Persons ("Dewey"), Larry Whisenhunt ("Louie"), and Steve Brown and CHERYL SPARKS (both portraying "Huey").
The Drones are among the most original robots ever on the big screen. The performers were all double-amputees who walked on their hands in lightweight robot suits. Bruce Dern has called the Drones "adorable," and they are surprisingly charming and funny in the film. With the performers walking on their hands in the suits, the Drones have a unique, wobbly gait. And considering that they are essentially mute, featureless boxes, the "body language" performances project wonderful personalities for the robots. George Lucas admits that they were his starting point for the creation of R2-D2.
Cheryl Sparks also appeared in the documentary THE MAKING OF SILENT RUNNING, but never appeared in another film. Cheryl is a mom and a grandmother and is happily retired in California. She considers her months making SILENT RUNNING some of the best times of her life. "There wasn't a day that wasn't worth it. I didn't have one bad day."

After a brief appearance in the 1971 film Klute and small acting roles on TV series such as The Mod Squad, Emergency! and Cannon, Dobson won the role of Lt. Theo Kojak's young partner, Det. Bobby Crocker, on the TV series Kojak, opposite Telly Savalas, after he signed a contract with Universal Studios in 1972. For the role, he had to borrow a suit. He auditioned and failed, twice, then, he called his agent, telling him, "'Do what you have to do,' so he called in a favor and I read for them [again]. I was a military policeman in the Army, so I knew how to hold a gun and throw somebody against a wall. I got a call [the next night] asking if I'd sign a contract."He auditioned for the third time and finally won. He remained with Kojak for its entire run from 1973 to 1978, and later reunited with Savalas for the 1990 TV movie, Kojak: It's Always Something, his character having become an assistant district attorney.

In 1978 he played Pete Lomas in the two-part TV movie The Immigrants, based on Howard Fast's novel. In 1980, he was offered the chance for a lead role on Magnum, P.I., but he turned it down, hence the role was eventually given to another Universal contract player, Tom Selleck.[citation needed] From 1981-1982, Dobson starred as the title character of the CBS series Shannon, about a San Francisco police officer who is a single father. The series failed to win substantial ratings and was cancelled after nine episodes. Also in 1981, he played a lead role in the movie All Night Long, playing the husband of Barbra Streisand.

Dobson also appeared on the syndicated F/X: The Series for one season, playing Detective Leo McCarthy in 1996-97, and on the hit daytime drama series, One Life to Live and The Bold and the Beautiful.
Dobson starred with Richard Thomas in the 2009 stage production of 12 Angry Men. Dobson has stated, concerning actors who are afraid of being typecast, " should be so lucky".
He played Mickey Horton on Days of Our Lives from April 2008 to October 2, 2008. His character was not seen on screen and left, with no explanation, for two years. The character of Mickey was "killed off" the show in January 2010. Although Dobson played the character for a few months, Mickey is best remembered being played by veteran soap actor John Clarke.
