Chase Kim, one of the MACO’s from STAR TREK:ENTERPRISE will turn up as a cop on RINGER in Episode #17, What We Have Is Worth the Pain (13 March). The episode will be directed by Howard Deutch, Zoey’s father.
MACO stands for Military Assault Command Operations, an elite, high-tech combat unit which existed prior to the founding of the Federation. Chase Kim was a MACO in Episode #66, Strategem, in which Archer tries to run a game on the Xindi Degra (Randy Oglesby) with hopes of gaining information. He also appeared in Episode #72, The Forgotten.
This will be Kim’s 13th role as a cop (of one kind or another) since he began his career in 2003. He is just as much typecast as was Jason Furlani, who played a cop in the RINGER pilot. Furlani has played a cop fourteen times since 2001, most recently in the film MAN ON A LEDGE, which was released in January.
