I've been watching Star Trek TOS on BluRay, which I must say is a real pleasure since I'm noticing scenes that were in the original broadcast but left off the original DVD release. After watching the episode "Shore Leave" I couldn't help but wonder if the Bruce Mars the actor who played Finnegan is still living? In all the years I've gone to assorted Star Trek and Sci-Fi conventions I've never seen him attend one and IMDB has virtually no information on him either birthday or date of death which of course I hope is not the case.

Does anyone know if he's still living?



He was in films from 1965 to 1969 The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).
That doesn't really answer the question, as his article already states that. --31dot 12:51, February 18, 2012 (UTC)
