    Los Angeles, California (CNN) -- Actor Peter Graves, best known for his starring role on TV's "Mission: Impossible," was found dead Sunday at his home, according to a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department. He was 83.

    There was no sign of foul play in the actor's death, officer Karen Rayner said.

    Graves portrayed the character Jim Phelps for all but one of the seven years "Mission: Impossible" ran on CBS, from 1967-1973. He won a Golden Globe in 1971 for his work on the show, and he was also nominated for an Emmy.

    He reprised the role from 1988 to 1990 when the show resurfaced on ABC.

    We used to watch it after school, one of us would sit close to the TV so we could shut it off quick if my dad drove up.

    Remember the little dot in the center of the picture tube that would be there when you turned off the TV and remain for awhile until it got smaller and smaller and smaller and finally went away?

    Yeah and it stayed warm for awhile too. We got caught a couple of times, he didn't like star trek either. It actually added to the excitement of watching the shows.

    Mission Impossible was one show that my whole family
    gathered around the tv to watch together when I was
    a kid. I loved that show. Have to post this as a memorial:

This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

    Me too. It was ahead of its time, just like Hawaii Five-O. Great shows.
