I didn't know, prior to his death, that he was also a regular actor in one of the early incarnations of the TV series "Mission Impossible" (though he had a full head of dark hair then, rather than appearing as balding in later years such as in his regular role on the "Law and Order" TV series).

Notice the decomposing disc instead of the self-destructing reel-to-reel tape used in later seasons by Jim Phelps (Peter Graves).


"Mission: Impossible" was nicely parodied by Johnny Carson as "Mission: Improbable", and by "MAD" magazine as "Mission: Ridiculous".
