Rainn Wilson Is Harry Mudd In “Star Trek Discovery”

“The Office” actor Rainn Wilson has been cast as the one and only charismatic interstellar con man Harry Mudd in the upcoming “Star Trek: Discovery” series.

The character had repeated run-ins with the crew of the Enterprise in the original 1960s series and was first played by Roger C. Carmel.

The action here is reportedly set about ten years before the events of the 1960s series and not involving any of the Enterprise crew, which makes Mudd’s appearance quite possible and fitting within continuity.

It is unknown how many episodes Wilson will appear in at this time.
