Armin Shimerman – Professional Career

Shimerman made his Broadway debut as an ensemble member and understudy in the musical Threepenny Opera, which ran for 306 performances from May 1, 1976, to January 23, 1977.

Roy Brocksmith, co-star of “Peak Performance,” was also in the cast of that play. 

Shimerman then appeared in the drama Saint Joan from December 1977 to February 1978, and in the musical/Remember Mama in 1979 as Mr. Thorkelson.

Shimerman eventually returned to Los Angeles, where he appeared on television shows such as Cagney & Lacey, Remington Steele, and The Facts of Life.

He was a recurrent character on the TV series Beauty and the Beast, which starred Star Trek Nemesis actor Ron Perlman and Tony Jay, from 1987 to 1989.

He later appeared on L.A. Law (with Corbin Bernsen and Larry Drake), Who’s the Boss?, Alien Nation (with Gary Graham, Eric Pierpoint, and Michele Scarabelli), and married…with children. 

During the first season of Brooklyn Bridge (1991-92), he was a regular as Uncle Bernie.

He is likely best recognized outside of Star Trek for his recurrent roles as Principal Snyder on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Dr. Nefarious in Ratchet & Clank.

An intriguing fact about his character in that series is that he was slain by a transformed Mayor Wilkins, played by Trek guest star Harry Groener.

Shrimerman has also appeared as a guest on Stargate SG-1, Ally McBeal, The Practice, Sliders, Charmed, The West Wing, ER, Nip/ Tuck, and Warehouse 13.

He appeared in a Seinfeld episode alongside Star Trek: Voyager guest star Jason Alexander. 

In the 2006 television film Dead & Deader, he co-starred alongside Star Trek: Enterprise actor John Billingsley.

Shimerman has recently been heard as General Skarr and Hector’s Stomach on the Cartoon Network shows The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy and Evil Con Carne.

He made an appearance on the TV show Invasion in 2005, among other Star Trek actors such as his Ds9 co-star Cirroc Lofton. 

He appeared as Judge Brian Hooper on Boston Legal, which starred William Shatner and DS9 co-star and friend Rene Auberjonois.

Shimerman’s first episode, “Can’t We All Get a Lung?” aired on September 19, 2006, and included DS9 guest star Henry Gibson as a judge.

In Sherman’s third episode, Ethan Phillips played the father of the youngster suspected of murdering Shimerman’s wife. 

Ron Canada appeared as a judge in the episode as well. 

This is his fourth episode. Shimerman eventually appeared in a scene alongside Rene Auberjonois.

Shimerman also voiced several characters in BioWare’s Mass Effect in 2007, alongside Marina Sirtis, Raphael Sbarge, and Dwight Schultz. 

Shimerman’s main character may also appear in the game’s sequel, which also stars Michael Dorn, Robin Sachs, and Keith Szarabajka, depending on player choices.

He also provided the voice of Andrew Ryan in the 2007 video game Bioshock. 

The producers of the game declined to disclose who voiced this character before the game’s release, simply indicating that “we wouldn’t believe it”.

Shimerman’s voice for Ryan was revealed just after the game’s release. 

Several people in gaming were astonished by this, because Ryan had a very low voice, which was unlike anything Shimerman had demonstrated in other mediums.

J.G. Hertzler, Shimerman’s regular DS9 co-star, also voiced a character in the game, and Shimerman and Hertzler returned their roles in the 2010 sequel, BioShock 2.

Shimerman has also been in a number of feature films, including The Hitcher (1989) with Henry Darrow, Arena (1989) with Marc Alaimo, and Death Warrant (1990), in which he shared screen time with many fellow Trek performers.
