Johnny Staccato featured both of John (aka Johnny) Williams appearances as an actor. I watched one of Williams's episodes on YouTube. He's not in it except to take over from Cassavetes as the piano player in the club at the beginning and ending of the episode, and he's hard to recognise. As I understand it that episode was the series pilot and it holds up pretty well. The show was too cool for the audiences of 1959 who were strictly L7.
