With the passing of Fess Parker the other day, I was again reminded of what great actors we had to view growing up. Not like the actors today that seem to be all cast from the same mold. No actors seem to stand out, not the way they used to with trademark styles and voices.
Robert Culp was one of the greats. I always enjoyed anything he was in. He had style. I think I first noticed him in shows like the Rifleman. He played parts on alot of tv shows from that time. He then played a texas ranger in Hoby Gilman, which was a show I really liked as a kid. Then he caught the spy bug and was in "I Spy". I always thought he might play a good Nick Fury Agent of Shield. Think about it a bit.
Anyway I even liked the comedy of the Greatest American Hero where he played a dog biscuit eating FBI agent. But to me he will always be best known as 'trent' in the Outer Limits episode 'Demon with a Glass Hand'. That episode really opened my eyes to alot of things.
A couple of years ago a friend of mine was at the San Diego con and saw Robert Culp there, and got me an autographed pic of Robert Culp as Trent. That pic means alot to me even more now.
Thanks Robert for your acting and the many parts you played...it was a real joy.
