Jackson DeForest Kelley (January 20, 1920 – June 11, 1999) was an American actor, screenwriter, poet and singer known for his roles in Westerns and as Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy of the USS Enterprise in the television and film series Star Trek.

Biography

Vétéran de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, Jackson DeForest Kelley est surtout connu pour ses rôles de méchants dans les séries télévisées, notamment dans des westerns comme Le Virginien (avec Leonard Nimoy).

La série originale de Star Trek met fin à cette réputation avec le rôle du Docteur Leonard « Bones » McCoy. Il participe également aux six premiers films de la saga Star Trek et est présent dans l'épisode pilote de la nouvelle série Star Trek : La Nouvelle Génération (Rendez-vous à Farpoint / Encounter at Farpoint).

Pour le premier pilote de Star Trek The Cage, l'acteur Jackson DeForest Kelley fut un moment pressenti pour le rôle de Spock. En revanche, on lui refusa le rôle du docteur car jugé trop âgé… Il ne participa donc pas au second pilote (Où l'homme dépasse l'homme / Where No Man Has Gone Before), mais apparaît dans le premier épisode (Fausses Manœuvres / The Corbomite Maneuver) sous les traits du docteur Leonard McCoy.

Jackson DeForest Kelley avait épousé Carolyn Dowling le 7 septembre 1945 .

2263. Sur une planète, le capitaine James T. Kirk agit à titre d'ambassadeur pour conclure un traité de paix entre deux peuples ennemis. En guise de cadeau, il apporte un artefact qui faisait partie d'une puissante arme inconnue. Cependant, le chef de la planète s'emporte, croyant qu'on veut se moquer de lui et soumettre son peuple. Kirk tente de l'apaiser, mais le chef préfère attaquer Kirk, imité par ses congénères. Grâce à Scotty, Kirk retourne sur le vaisseau USS Enterprise. Après cette mission manquée, Kirk se questionne sur son rôle dans Starfleet. Après trois ans de mission et alors que son anniversaire approche — il aura un an de plus que son père quand il est mort —, il n'éprouve plus qu'ennui et malaise, même si son équipage est l'un des meilleurs selon ses dires.
