Michael Copon's (Lucas, Time Force) twelfth and final appearance on "One Tree Hill" came in the episode titled "Something I Can Never Have." His character Felix is busted by his sister Anna who discovers he was the culprit who spray painted the offensive word 'dyke' on Peyton's (series regular Hilarie Burton) locker because he was unhappy with her getting close to his sister. Anna shocks Felix when she confronts him, revealing that she is the lesbian, not Peyton. She turns Felix in to the school principal and his parents decide to send him to military school as punishment. When news of Felix's act is revealed to his girlfriend Brooke (series regular Sophia Bush), she breaks up with him on the spot for defacing her best friend's locker and spewing hatred. Felix is last seen leaving Tree Hill High School. Given his major role, a full zip of Copon's screencaps is available to download.
In the same year he began his role as Lost Galaxy's Blue Ranger, Archie Kao (Kai, Lost Galaxy) took on a notable role on the family drama "Once and Again." Kao appeared a couple times on the series as Steve, an employee of one of the show's main characters, architect Rick Sammler. In the episode "A Dream Deferred," Steve helps his boss move a countertop which he plans to use to help build a coffee bar in his girlfriend's book store. Kao appears in only one scene, alongside the series stars Sela Ward & Billy Campbell. He's joined in this episode by another future PR star. Ilia Volok (Viktor Adler/Master Org, Wild Force) also appears in this episode as a friendly repairman named Sonny, who helps Rick's girlfriend Lily when her washing machine breaks down. When he tries to install the new model, Sonny & Lily discover that it won't fit despite being the exact same model, which forces her to upgrade. Volok appears in two scenes.
Ted, Tim & Tom DiFilippo (Trey, Zeo) made their movie debuts in "Major League: Back to the Minors." Only two of the triplets, however, were seen on-screen at a time in the third film in the "Major League" franchise. Tim & Tom portrayed Juan Lopez, a member of the fictional South Carolina Buzz baseball team. Ted portrayed Juan's twin brother, also named Juan. The two players quickly become known as Juan #1 and Juan #2 by their new manager Gus Cantrell (played by Scott Bakula). At first the twin brothers don't get along very well on the field, as they fight over the ball and almost come to blows. Eventually, they learn to play well with one another and help their team to victory. The DiFilippos appear throughout the movie, mostly in the background, as they don't have many lines. While this is the first appearance for the actors portraying Zeo's Gold Ranger, the character's voice actor, Brad Hawkins has appeared several times on the blog already.
"Major League: Back to the Minors" is available on DVD
Keith Robinson (Joel, Lightspeed) is no stranger to television and in 2003 he joined the cast of the NBC family drama "American Dreams."

In the episode "Great Expectations" Nathan comes into their lives as a youth on the verge of trouble back home. His mother sends him to stay with his uncle in hopes that he will gain the drive to succeed in life. Robinson continued in a recurring capacity for the duration of the series.
