Jackie Chiles, the flashy lawyer he played on Seinfeld (1989), was based on the late Johnnie L. Cochran Jr., who defended O.J. Simpson. Even the initials were the same.
On Mission: Impossible (1988), his character (Grant Collier) was the son of his father's (Greg Morris) character (Barney Collier) from Mission: Impossible (1966).

Acting protégé of Peter Graves.
Uniquely connected to the Star Trek franchise, getting one of his first on screen roles as a child in The Original Series episode "Miri." This appearance may have stemmed from his father starring in the Mission Impossible series filmed in the same studios. As an adult, he went on to have roles in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, Star Trek Deep Space Nine, and Star Trek Voyager. This makes him one of the very few actors to play different roles in the original, movie, and spin off version of Star Trek.
Before he worked with Peter Graves on Mission: Impossible (1988), he knew Graves's real-life children, when he was younger.
