Peter Graves, who starred as Jim Phelps for several memorable years in Mission Impossible, died today just a few days short of his 84th birthday. He was returning home from having brunch with his wife and daughters when he had an apparent heart attack.
To me, he will always be Jim Phelps, and its such a pity that he didn't go onto the set of those ridiculous MI remakes with Tom Cruise and kick his butt! In the first place Phelps would never have turned traitor, and in the second place even if he had turned traitor, he was way too smart to have been caught by the likes of Tom Cruise!
