Although a familiar fact to non-genre fans, Langella has played quite a few genre roles in his career, including Sphinx (1981), Sherlock Holmes (TV 1981), Masters of the Universe (1987), Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (TV series, uncredited as Minister Jaro), Brainscan (1994), Cutthroat Island (1995), Small Soldiers (1998), The Ninth Gate (1999), Jason and the Argonauts (TV 2000), 10.5: Apocalypse (TV 2006), Superman Returns (2006) and The Box (2009).
