Summer and Hat-trick Carlos together again. Carlos Jacott guests on Terminator. Did he and Summer appear together at all in the pilot of Firefly?

Yes. Towards the end. I'll say nothing else so that it won't spoil for anybody. I don't know how to make letters invisible.
streetartist - Its in the 'How to' tips right next to the comment box.
I don't think knowledge of events in the Firefly pilot count as spoilers, seeing as how it aired 7 years ago.
6 years ago. Week after next.

Yeah, Carlos died with River in his arms (holding a gun to her head)...
Oh wait, he DIDN'T die then, as we learned later in the comics. LOL

I love seeing our Whedony actors on T:SCC, two weeks ago we had Adam (Warren) Busch being tortured (and we all knew Warren totally deserved it) and this week we've got Carlos Jacott!
"6 years ago. Week after next."

So not a whole seven years? Thanks for the catch, DisChunk. We came awfully close to breaking the "six years is not quite long enough for everyone in the world to have seen the pilot of Firefly and so therefore spoilers still apply" rule then. ;)
When I saw the preview, I thought that was him! Shiny!
I'm betting on Carlos to be the first four-show guy. You just know Joss wants to use him on Dollhouse....

Alas, it's now impossible for anyone to have a complete sweep, mushortio included, as Nathan was never in Angel.

Not a whole SIX years yet. Some people are extremely sensitive just because they are allowed to be. Me- tell me NOW, there's no such thing as spoilers.
Ummm...forgive me, but...should I know who this is?

I mean...who in the 'verse this is. Or...was.

What I mean is: Who'd this guy play in something I might've seen? So...who was he in "Buffy" or "Firefly" because I haven't seen "Angel"?

Or Andy Umberger, who's hat-tricked and also showed up on T:SCC last season. (Admittedly he's harder to recognize right away without all the D'Hoffryn makeup.)

ETA: He's the stalker telekinetic doctor in early Angel and the Alliance commander duped by the crybaby in the Firefly pilot.

Carlos Jacott played the guy who turned out to be an Alliance spy in the pilot, Dobson.( He's the guy who was being held prisoner when Jayne said 'Pain is scary'.) Carlos also auditioned for the part of Wash, in case no one knew that. He's one of a very few actors to have played a role in all three of Joss Whedon's tv series- Firefly, Buffy, and Angel. Jonathan Woodward is another, maybe Blake Robbins, I don't remember for sure. Anyway, Carlos played a small part in 'The Bachelor Party' episode from Angel, and the episode 'Anne' from Buffy.

More recently he's been in lots of stuff on TV, including a part on the Terminator: Sarah Connior Chronicles', 'Kville', ' 'Big Love', and Scrubs. He was Larry the Agent in 'Being John Malkovich'. Been a pretty busy actor, just no steady recurring roles.
Carlos Jacott was also on the only season of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip by my second favorite show creator. He played one of the head writers who gets frozen out by Matt and quits in the sixthish episode.

In Buffy he was (I wanna say) Ken, the evil demon guy in 'Anne' that uses kids as slaves. He's a guy that actually pops up quite a bit in all sorts of places.
And he was amazing with large roles in Noah Baumbach's first two films, Kicking And Screaming (not the Will Ferrell one) and Mr. Jealousy. Check 'em out if you haven't seen them.
