His work in Deep Space 9 as the no nonsense law enforcer pitted against the resourceful Quark is one of the reason I enjoy that series so much. One of the best episodes with the two of them is called Ascent. Thanks Rene, RIP.






[variety.com]

René Auberjonois, best known for his roles in “Boston Legal” and “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” died at his home in Los Angeles due to metastatic lung cancer. He was 79.

His son Rèmy-Luc confirmed the news to the Associated Press.

Auberjonois was a prolific television actor, appearing as Paul Lewiston in 71 episodes of “Boston Legal” and as Clayton Runnymede Endicott III in ABC’s long-running sitcom “Benson” — a role that earned him an Emmy nomination for best supporting actor in a comedy in 1984. He played shape-shifter Changeling Odo in “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” and carried that role into video games, voicing Odo in “Harbinger” and “The Fallen.” His appearance as Judge Mantz in ABC’s “The Practice” earned him another Emmy nod for guest actor in a drama in 2001.

His guest roles were numerous, appearing on classics like “Murder, She Wrote,” “The Jeffersons,” “The Outer Limits,” “L.A. Law,” “Stargate SG-1,” “Frasier,” and the more recent hit “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.”

I hope he gets his latinum-plated bucket to rest in.

RIP

I remember him best as Father Mulcahy in the movie version of MASH, great understated comedic performance.

René Auberjonois, ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Boston Legal’ Actor, Dies at 79

......René Auberjonois, best known for his roles in “Boston Legal” and “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” died at his home in Los Angeles due to metastatic lung cancer. He was 79.

His son Rèmy-Luc confirmed the news to the Associated Press.

Auberjonois was a prolific television actor, appearing as Paul Lewiston in 71 episodes of “Boston Legal” and as Clayton Runnymede Endicott III in ABC’s long-running sitcom “Benson” — a role that earned him an Emmy nomination for best supporting actor in a comedy in 1984. He played shape-shifter Changeling Odo in “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” and carried that role into video games, voicing Odo in “Harbinger” and “The Fallen.” His appearance as Judge Mantz in ABC’s “The Practice” earned him another Emmy nod for guest actor in a drama in 2001.

His guest roles were numerous, appearing on classics like “Murder, She Wrote,” “The Jeffersons,” “The Outer Limits,” “L.A. Law,” “Stargate SG-1,” “Frasier,” and the more recent hit “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.”

His first film role came with “MASH,” in which he played Father Mulcahy in the first of several collaborations with Robert Altman. He would go on appear in Altman’s revisionist Western classic “McCabe & Mrs. Miller,” “Brewster McCloud,” and “Images.” Other film credits include Roy Bagley in 1976’s “King Kong” and Reverend Oliver in “The Patriot,” as well as parts in “Batman Forever,” “Eyes of Laura Mars” and “Walker.”

Before his entry into Hollywood, Auberjonois worked in theater, earning a Tony for best lead actor in a musical for his role opposite Katharine Hepburn in “Coco.” He received further Tony nominations for 1973’s “The Good Doctor,” 1984’s “Big River,” and 1989’s “City of Angels.”

Auberjonois was also known for his voice roles, particularly in 1989’s Disney Renaissance hit “The Little Mermaid,” in which he voices Chef Louis and sang the memorable “Les Poissons.” Fans of “The Princess Diaries” would recognize him as the voice of Mia Thermopolis’ father, Prince Philippe Renaldi, in an uncredited role.

In addition to his son, he is survived by his wife of 56 years, writer Judith Auberjonois; sisters Marie-Laure Degener and Anne Auberjonois; daughter Tessa Auberjonois; son-in-law Adrian Latourelle, daughter-in-law Kate Nowlin and three grandchildren.

He was remembered on social media by his “Deep Space Nine” co-star Armin Shimerman, who played Quark.

“His last message to me was entitled ‘Don’t forget…’ I know that I, Killy and all that knew him will never forget. The world seems noticeably emptier now. I loved him.”



and so it goes......and so it goes.......?!

One of the most amusing Odo episodes is when he was being pursued by Lwaxana Troi. The hunter of law and order became the hunted.

What a bummer. I'll always remember Mr. Auberjonois because his character Odo was part of what I consider to be one of the funniest exchanges in all of Star Trek:

Odo- What kind of sycophant are you?!?

Bat Dude*- (gazes adoringly at Odo) What kind of sycophant do you want me to be?

Rest in Peace, Mr. Auberjonois.


*I can't remember the character's name or race in the series, but to me he resembled a humanoid version of a bat.

My daughter was their baby sitter. His wife emailed my daughter upon his death. He was married 56 years. Amazing. My daughter got a huge case of chicken pox from his kids.

I almost completely forgot he played Endicott in Benson. He was a great foil for Robert Guillaume, much like he played Father Mulcahey as the straight man in MASH. RIP

For me Auberjonois was always Clayton Endicott III and all other characters were merely secondary. Helps that I didn't watch DS9 or The Practice much.

RIP sir, you were a class act.

Wow. I had the joy of seeing him perform on stage multiple times, and he was truly gifted. Rest in peace, René.
