R.I.P. Robert Vaughn

If you're asking who? then you have never watched reruns of certain of the classic spy shows from the 1960s.

Robert Vaughn was Napoleon Solo, the original (Cavill did a bang up job in the movie, but he's still not the original).

He was also General Hunt Stockwell in the A-Team (another of my guilty pleasures, despite my ardent dislike of Dirk Benedict), played a small role in Superman III, was in a single episode of any number of shows and apparently once played Hitler (Which I can't imagine).

But I'll remember him the most as the suave spy intended to be "TV's answer to James Bond."

He was 83 years old.
