    Robert Culp was a great actor, and we always looked forward to watching him on TV – no matter what program – if his name was on the program we watched him. We never missed an "I Spy" with Bill Cosby and will still watch the reruns. Our concolences go out to his family and many friends. May you REST IN PEACE you will always be a star!

    Robert Culp was one of the VERY BEST actors that I have seen on either movies or t.v.
    To me he was up there with such greats as Richard Burton , Charlton Heston or Gregory Peck. He will be sorely missed. Heaven has gotten a GREAT ACTOR.
