Robert Culp, best known for playing a secret agent alongside Bill Cosby in the ’60s hit series “I Spy,” died on Wednesday after a fall near his home. He was 79.
Culp, who also starred alongside Natalie Wood, Elliott Gould and Dyan Cannon in the 1969 film Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice and in the ’80s starred as FBI Agent Bill Maxwell in “The Greatest American Hero,” was pronounced dead at a Los Angeles hospital where he was rushed after falling during a morning walk, a police spokeswoman said.
“It appears that the individual (Culp) had fallen down and struck his head. It’s still a preliminary investigation and we’re still waiting on the official cause of death,” she said, adding there was no indication of foul play.
