DeForest Kelley Facts
Often mistakenly billed as Kelly de Forrest.

A veteran of television and film westerns, he has portrayed two different participants in the legendary 1881 OK Corral gunfight between the Earps and the Clantons. In 1955, he played Ike Clanton in an episode of the TV series "You Are There" (1953), and in 1957, he played Morgan Earp in the film Gunfight at the O.K. Corral (1957). On "Star Trek" (1966), the USS Enterprise away team beam onto a planet and he again finds himself at the OK Corral, playing Tom McLaury.

Shortly after Mr. Kelley's passing, "He's dead, Jim" was forever memorialized by being added in tribute to Dr. McCoy for two 1999 video games: StarCraft Expansion Set: Brood War (1998) (VG) and Shatner-oids, a spoof of the classic Atari game "Asteroids".
