Do you what song these lyrics are from:
Stop playin’ with my heart
Finish what you start
When you make my love come down
Yesterday’s: “Theme from The Greatest American Hero (Believe It or Not)” by Joey Scarbury. Today would have been Robert Culp’s 81st birthday.
Look at what’s happened to me,
I can’t believe it myself.
Suddenly I’m up on top of the world,
It should’ve been somebody else
According to the Associated Press, Robert Culp, who played FBI Agent Bill Maxwell on The Greatest American Hero, died yesterday falling on a sidewalk near the lower entrance to Runyon Canyon Park, a popular hiking area in Hollywood. According to his manager Hillard Elkins, Culp was on a walk when he fell, and was pronounced dead before noon. Culp’s son was told that he died of a heart attack, and police were not sure if the fall was medically related.
Robert Culp is also known for playing Kelly Robinson in the television show I Spy, which ran 1965-168. For all three seasons, he was nominated for an Emmy for Best Actor in a Drama, but lost to costar Bill Cosby (who played Alexander Scott) all three times. They remained friends after the series ended. Then they had a mini reunion in 1987 for an episode on The Cosby Show. Culp played Cliff Huxtable’s old navy buddy, Scotty Kelly, which was a combination of their I Spy characters’ names.
