Life Story of Michael J. Pollard

Cherubic, wispy-haired looks made his typecasting as impish or eccentric characters somehow inevitable. The pint-sized Michael J. Pollard was born the son of a bar manager of Polish ancestry in Passaic (New Jersey). He studied drama at the Actor's Studio (with a young Marilyn Monroe in the same class) and made his theatrical debut in November 1958 on Broadway in "Comes the Day", with George C. Scott and Judith Anderson. He received excellent critical notices the following year for his performance in William Inge's play "A Loss of Roses" and thereby came to the attention of Hollywood. On the small screen, Pollard enjoyed a measure of early success in anthology television. He then had a brief stint as Bob Denver's cousin Jerome Krebs in a couple of episodes of The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis (1959). His chief contribution to cult sci-fi consisted of appearances in Lost in Space (1965) and Star Trek: The Original Series (1966), his baby-faced appearance enabling him to essay characters who were considerably younger than his actual age. True to form, he also portrayed the bowler-hat wearing, leprechaun-like trickster Mister Mxyzptlk in Superboy (1988), based on the DC comic strips....

Before Robert Altman was signed to direct "Brewster McCloud", Michael J. Pollard was considered for the title role. Bud Cort eventually played it.

Dran Hamilton, Michael J. Pollard, and Willard Sage in Dreckiger kleiner Billy (1972)

He has a small role in Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland (1989). Coincidentally, his Bonnie and Clyde (1967) co-star, Estelle Parsons, was almost cast as Mrs. Voorhees in another 1980s slasher film, Friday the 13th (1980). Parsons was offered the part, but eventually declined, and Betsy Palmer took her place.

Michael J. Pollard and Logan Ramsey in Die Geister, die ich rief... (1988)

In 1966, at the age of 27, Michael Pollard was hired as a guest star on Star Trek, playing "Jahn" in the episode "Miri". The script called for an actor 14 years of age, but Pollard got the part anyway since his agent convinced the show's producers that he looked like a teenager even though he was close to 30.

Michael J. Pollard in The American Way (1986)

An early career break occurred when Pollard was brought in as a replacement during the first season of TV's "Dobie Gillis." Co-star Bob Denver, who was stealing the show as Dobie's beatnik buddy Maynard G. Krebs, was going to be drafted into the Army and had to exit the series. When Denver was classified "4-F" due to a longstanding neck injury and returned, Pollard's character of weird cousin Jerome Krebs was quickly written out.
