Actor Robert Culp Dies

There's word out of Hollywood that actor Robert Culp has died. The 79-year-old reportedly collapsed and hit his head outside of his home today.

While others may talk about his roles in I Spy and The Man from UNCLE, I'll remember Culp for playing the FBI handler of a bumbling superhero in The Greatest American Hero.

I don't know of any other actor who could have delivered the phrase "the magic jammies" as part of his dialogue as often as Culp did with as perfect a mix of sarcasm and seriousness.
