Nationalité Lituanie
Naissance 12 octobre 1884
Mort 8 juin 1954 (à 69 ans) à Hollywood (Etats-Unis)

Maurice Cass (October 12, 1884 – June 8, 1954) was a character actor in numerous films and television shows. Born in Lithuania, he came to the US to pursue an acting career.

His slight build, frizzy hair and pince-nez glasses cast him as the "absent minded professor" or eccentric scientist type in many of his films, such as the character who discovers the element kryptonite in Adventures of Superman.

He is best remembered for his role as Professor Newton in the 1954 TV science fiction show Rocky Jones, Space Ranger.

He died of a heart attack at age 69 while the Rocky Jones show was still in production; his Professor Newton character was replaced by a new character, Professor Mayberry.

Rocky Jones attempts to save the inhabitants of a planet about to collide with a moon. The empress of the planet, however, is suspicious. While Rocky and his crew finally succeed in evacuating the planet in time, Cleolanthe's pride and vanity are a major hindrance. Finally, however, as the last of the planet's population leaves, Cleolanthe arrogantly declares that she will stay behind. Her assistant, however, refuses to allow this, and literally picks her up and carries her on board Rocky's own ship. She watches in despair as the moon crashes into her planet, the two bodies destroying one another instantly. As the ship heads for the new home that has been chosen for her people, Cleolanthe finally realizes that she had been wrong, and that, as one of her underlings has stated, it is the people that make a nation, not the land itself. She finally reconciles with Rocky and his crew, and sincerely thanks them for their efforts in her behalf and that of her people. This marks the end of the character Cleolanthe in the Rocky Jones series. Succeeding episodes contain a new villain.

From the New York Times: "In the words of its star Leonard Nimoy, Kid Monk Baroni was the sort of film that "made unknowns out of celebrities." The young Nimoy is actually quite good as the title character, a boxer whose misshapen face has earned him the unwelcome nickname "Monk." Formerly an unregenerate street punk, Baroni is set on the proper path by parish priest Father Callahan (Richard Rober). Unfortunately, a run-in with his old gang forces Baroni to skip town. He becomes a professional pugilist under the aegis of manager Hellman (Bruce Cabot), taking out his pent-up frustrations in the ring. Able to afford plastic surgery, Baroni buys himself a handsome new face — and, with it, a dangerously oversized ego. Hoping to protect his new face from harm, Baroni washes out in the boxing ring, but redemption — and a lasting romance with Emily Brooks (Allene Roberts) -- await just around the corner. Kid Monk Baroni was well-directed by Harold Schuster, whose previous efforts included My Friend Flicka and So Dear to My Heart. A flop at the box office, the film did nothing for the career of Leonard Nimoy, who was obliged to spend the next 15 years in relative obscurity before attaining a second chance at big-time stardom with TV's Star Trek.
