Well, that does appear to be Greg Morris, who was in the most episodes (the entire run of the series)Well, I'll be the first to say it. I absolutely hate that generic-looking boxart! Almost looks designed to try and fool the casual buyer into thinking this has something to do with the more-recent Tom Cruise franchise.
Or, the look of a public-domain release of something.
I totally understand that the original cast probably have next to zero face-recognition with anyone under 50, but if they're not going to use Landau or Peter Graves, they might as well use an explosion and the series logo instead of this!
I wonder if there were any mistakes on the DVD releases that people should be watchful for to see if they get repeated (or fixed) here.
It took a big close-up on another site for me to notice that was Greg Morris. To paraphrase what you said, it seems obvious they stuck his head on someone else's body, though. Also, sure, Greg is in more episodes than anyone else, but he wasn't the series lead and it was more of an 'ensemble' thing anyway. It still kind of looks more like an attempt to mislead the casual buyer than it is to evoke the feel of the show. But, whatever, it's just a box. It'll be what's inside that will ultimately count.They stuck Greg's head on Tom Cruise's body.
