But about those forays into the realms of the Fantastic?
How about a list, my friend?
- Q: The Winged Serpent (1982)
- Night Visitor (1989)
- Beauty And The Beast (3 episodes)
- Amityville: A New Generation (1993)
- Touched By An Angel
- Steel (1997)
- Alias (2 episodes)
- Painkiller Jane (2005)
- Blade: The Series
- Vegas Vampires (2007)
- Heroes (6 episodes)
- Speed Racer (2008)

- Haunting Of The Mary Celeste (2020)
That, my friends, demonstrates that Roundtree definitely made his way across the genres, and he and his career deserve a bit of extra reflection in the days ahead.
Our warmest thoughts and prayers are extended to the family, friends, and fans of Richard Roundtree. May he rest in peace.
