In memoriam Peter Graves
Peter Graves, the tall, stalwart actor likely best known for his portrayal of Jim Phelps, leader of a gang of special agents who battled evil conspirators in the long-running television series "Mission: Impossible," died Sunday.
Peter Graves, the original star of Mission Impossible.
I’m a bit to young to actually remember him from that show, I do remember him mostly as this charming elder man playing in comedy faves like Airplane or Mad Mission II, and incidentally The Slipper and the Rose which I happened to recommend to somebody, just a few days ago.
My condolence to his family and friends.
