    Marvelous actor, a '60s icon to rival Capt Kirk, and oh what I crush I had on him. RIP.

    Knock it off. I dare you.

    My first memories of him are from the Eveready commercials and how he seemed a bit of a jerk on Battle of the Network Stars.

    Wild Wild West was a terrific show. May he rest in peace.

    As much as I loved Wild Wild West, I loved him even more in Baa Baa Black Sheep. He just exuded a manliness only rivaled by Brick Mantooth. They don't make them like that anymore...

    I remember Wild Wild West when I was very young, and remember liking it. But I haven't seen it in over 40 years. Still holds up?

    IMO, yes. I rewatch it regularly. Like ST:TOS, it's an uneven show but generally quite enjoyable.

    i haven't watched WWW or Baa baa Black Sheep/Black Sheep Squadron, since I was a kid but I always liked them both back then. I was reading that in the final season of WWW he stopped readings the scripts, except for his own lines and he was just winging it

    I forgot about the Battle of the Network Stars, he was a team captain I think? He was definitely competitive
