Bill Cosby's former "I Spy" co-star Robert Culp has died in Los Angeles, aged 79. The actor reportedly fell and banged his head outside his Hollywood home and was pronounced dead upon arrival at hospital on Wednesday, March 24.

Culp began acting in the early 1950s and went on to become a prolific TV star, appearing in hit shows like "Bonanza", "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.", "The Greatest American Hero" and "Police Story". As well as "I Spy", he'll be best known for playing comedian Ray Romano's father-in-law in "Everybody Loves Raymond".

Culp also enjoyed success as a movie star, appearing in films like "Spy Hard" and "The Pelican Brief", opposite Julia Roberts. He was working right up to his death - his final film, "The Assignment", is currently in post-production.
