    Peter Graves Dies at 83

    Written by Seth Abramovitch

    Sad breaking news, as the LAT reports actor Peter Graves was found dead in his Pacific Palisades home today at age 83, of natural causes. I recently spoke with Graves on the eve of receiving his long-overdue star on the Walk of Fame for what would turn out to be one of his last in-depth interviews. As suave, austere and considered in person as he is on screen, Grave reminisced on everything from working in early classics like Stalag 17 and The Night of the Hunter, to his string of low-budget sci-fi efforts from the ’50s, to his iconic work as Jim Phelps in Mission: Impossible and Airplane!’s Cpt. Oveur. He also expressed interest in reprising Phelps in the upcoming Mission: Impossible 4. Sadly, it wasn’t meant to be.

    I don't understand a single word

    As a big MST3K fan, I am really saddened by his passing. He was also great in Men In Black too.
    RIP
