Tv Legend Robert Culp Dies

Robert Culp, best known for his role in the pioneering TV series I Spy, died today at 79.

Culp died after a fall on the sidewalk outside of his Hollywood home, his agent, Hillard Elkins confirmed. He additionally suffered a heart attack and was rushed to the hospital, but paramedics were unable to revive him.

Culp appeared in more than 100 films and TV series in a career that spanned more than a half-century.

His first starring role was on the CBS Western series Trackdown, in which he played a gun-slinging Texas Ranger. He went on to play Kelly Robinson in the NBC series I Spy from 1965 to 1968 with Bill Cosby. The show was the first prime-time series with a black actor in a lead role.

He returned to television in a lead role in 1981 as the The Greatest American Hero. More recently, he had a multi-episode arc on Everybody Loves Raymond and bit parts on shows such as Lois & Clark and Wings.

Married five times, Culp is survived by his wife Candace Falkner, three sons and two daughters.
