    'Mission: Impossible' star Peter Graves dies in LA

    LOS ANGELES Peter Graves, the tall, stalwart actor likely best known for his portrayal of Jim Phelps, leader of a gang of special agents who battled evil conspirators in the long-running television series "Mission: Impossible," died Sunday.


    Graves died of an apparent heart attack outside his Los Angeles home, publicist Sandy Brokaw said. He would have been 84 this week.


    Graves had just returned from brunch with his wife and kids and collapsed before he made it into the house, Brokaw said. One of his daughters administered CPR but was unable to revive him. Graves' family doctor visited the house and believed he had a heart attack, Brokaw said.

    Although I've been aware of it for many years, I never understood the apparently broken relationship with his older brother, actor James Arness ("Gunsmoke").

    RIP Peter Graves...you contributed much and will surely be remembered fondly

    Unhappy

    Just found this out. So sad! Prior to Airplane, in which he was hilarious, not many of you know he was the original Jim Phelps in Mission Impossible, in which he was also fantastic! (Okay, I'm dating myself!)
    RIP Peter, you will be missed.

    My Mom had the biggest crush on him in Mission Impossible. I remember one time when he and another person on the show were coming to the mall. My Mom and a couple of her friends joined a group of women that literally mobbed him. That is one great memory, as my friends and I could just laugh!
