Character actor King Moody was best known for the five seasons in which he appeared in the recurring role of Shtarker, the assistant to evil mastermind Siegfried (Bernie Kopell) on the spy-spoof series Get Smart. Born Robert King Moody in New York City in 1929, he made his screen acting debut at age 29 in Tom Gaeff's notorious low-budget science fiction thriller Teenagers From Outer Space (1959), playing the evil alien spaceship captain. Over the next seven years Moody appeared in all manner of television series, including Tombstone Territory, Sea Hunt, and The Man From U.N.C.L.E., as well as a few feature films. In 1966, he was cast in the role of Shtarker, the physically imposing but not overly bright villain working alongside Kopell's Siefried, on Get Smart -- the two made a very funny pair, especially when sparring with Don Adams' Maxwell Smart, and given their characters' German names and the origins of the series as a Mel Brooks co-creation, it was inevitable that there would be some comical Nazi elements in their backgrounds (Starker was identified in one episode as a Third Reich track star and "the second man out of El Alemein" -- Siegfried was the first man out). Following the show's cancellation, Moody kept working in one-off roles in various dramas, sitcoms, features, and TV movies, but never had another role as memorable. He was called back into service once more for the 1989 TV movie Get Smart Again. He passed away in 2001.
