I was just posting this out in CF Mountain when I noticed this section. Mr. Culp was central to my favorite hour of TV: the Outer Limits ep "The Architects of Fear." I've also been watching him with Bill Cosby in I Spy lately.

R.I.P. Mr. Culp you will be missed. I enjoyed your work for many years. A talented and versatile actor.

I wish I could remember Outer Limits. I do remember him in I Spy, Columbo and his guest appearances on The Cosby Show. Another, nice guy, Hollywood actor we'll miss. A dying breed there.

The entire run of I Spy is also up. I'd been pondering starting a thread on it. Culp and Cosby were a great pair, and a full season before Star Trek this show had Cosby as a principal, and definitely the smart guy of the pair. They were also unusual in doing overseas location shooting. I've been enjoying them.

I just remembered another odd factoid, In James Jones' novel The Thin Red Line the weapons platoon is commanded by Lt. Robert Culp. Of course I pictured the character looking like Mr. Culp the actor, and I gather that was Jones' intention (given that he had other characters with names like "William Whyte" and "Albert Gore," even a rifleman named "Cash" who felt a lot like Johnny). The novel was published in '61 and judging from the imdb Mr. Culp seems to have been pretty well known by then.
