Peter Graves'Mission: Impossible' star Peter Graves died Sunday of a heart attack, the NY Times has confirmed.

Graves, whose film and television career spanned about 60 years, was perhaps best known for his Golden Globe-winning portrayal of IMF leader James Phelps on the iconic spy series, which ran for seven seasons on CBS. He later reprised the role in an ABC reboot, from 1988-1990.

Graves' small-screen career dates back the mid-'50s when he landed a regular gig on the NBC Western drama 'Fury.' From then on, he became a regular face on television, with additional roles on 'Whiplash,' 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents,' 'The Dean Martin Show,' 'Fantasy Island' and, more recently, the WB family drama, '7th Heaven.'
