R.I.P. Peter Graves (1926-2010)

Sad news in the entertainment business today.

Actor Peter Graves has died at the age of 83:

Mission Impossible Actor Peter Graves Dies at 83

*sigh*

While I will always know and love him in his role as Jim Phelps from the Mission Impossible series, he had excellent roles as well in Stalag 17, playing Price, a World War II German spy pretending to be a prisoner of war. He also played Captain Clarence Oveur in the comedies Airplane! and Airplane II: The Sequel, as well as the lead role of Christpher Cobb in the 1960's tv series, Whiplash about an American who arrived in Australia in the 1850s to establish the country's first stagecoach line. He was a pretty decent actor, overall.

Rest in Peace, Peter Graves.
