He served in the United States Marine Corps and was only one platoon apart in the Parris Island boot camp from his future friend Steve McQueen.[2]

He appeared in the role of Dr. Chauncy Hartlund in the 1965 Perry Mason episode, "The Case of the Carefree Coronary." In 1966, Montaigne portrayed the Romulan Decius in the Star Trek episode "Balance of Terror", he had nearly played Mr Spock when it was possible that Leonard Nimoy would appear on Mission Impossible.[3] A year later, he portrayed the Vulcan Stonn, the paramour of Spock's intended bride T'Pring, in the episode "Amok Time" - a role that he reprised in 2006 in the unofficial mini-series Star Trek: Of Gods and Men.

In addition, he guest starred on Batman, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Blue Light, Mission: Impossible, The Time Tunnel, The Invaders, Perry Mason, McCloud, and The Feather and Father Gang..

His motion picture appearances include roles in The Great Escape (1963),[1] Captain Sindbad (1963), Tobruk (1967), The Power (1968), The Psycho Lover (1970), Escape to Witch Mountain (1975),[1] Framed (1975), Young Lady Chatterley (1977),[1] Deadly Blessing (1981)[1] and Dakota (1988).[1]
