Actor Peter Graves, famed for his roles on television's Mission: Impossible (as intelligence master James Phelps, a role for which he took home a Golden Globe in 1971) and as Captain Oveur in the Airplane! movies, died on Sunday afternoon of natural causes. Graves had a career in Hollywood that spanned over 70 different films and numerous TV series. In recent years, he had slowed down his career, limiting it to small television appearances on shows such as House, 7th Heaven, and voice work on American Dad.
CNN reports that Graves collapsed in the driveway of his California home and attempts at resuscitation were unsuccessful. He was 83. [SOURCE]
