Actor and producer Ken Olandt's resume includes many of America's most beloved television series. He has been to outer space with "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and traveled on the Pacific Princess with the cast of "The Love Boat." Olandt's career began in the 1980s with appearances on television series such as "Highway to Heaven" and "The Fall Guy." He first became a series regular with the role of Kirk Dooley on "Riptide," a show about three private eyes in Southern California, from 1984 to 1985. His next recurring role as a series regular was that of Detective Zachary Stone on "Super Force" from 1990 to 1992. As the series' lead, he played an astronaut who vows to avenge brother's death in this futuristic sci-fi drama. Olandt moved on to films with the 1987 release of "Summer School," in which he played student Larry Kazamias, perhaps his most memorable role to date. In 1993, Olandt took on another part that would become a cult favorite as Nathan Murphy in the horror comedy "Leprechaun," about a murderous leprechaun in search of his pot of gold. Olandt continues to appear on television's most talked about shows, like "House M.D.," making him a highly recognizable face in American television.
