RIP Robert Culp

I think I most appreciated Robert Culp for his performances in Columbo. He was a murderer in 3 different episodes. I loved the silly one where he uses subliminal messages to kill someone.

According to Wikipedia, he almost got the lead role in Space: 1999. That would have been trippy. He was also the voice of Dr. Breen in the popular videogames Half Life 2 and Half-Life 2: Episode One.

RIP, Robert Culp.

RIP indeed. I cannot imagine Space: 1999 without Landau and Bain, but admittedly, that was already quite trippy. Culp + some other chick might well have been an improvement (heaven knows there was plenty of room for that).

I was thinking about Peter Graves last week, too. I loved him in just about everything I saw him in.
