Robert Culp, who, as the debonair secret agent Kelly Robinson on “I Spy,” was one half of the first racially integrated television cast to feature an African-American actor in a lead role, died, the Associated Press reported. He was 79.

Mr. Culp appeared alongside Bill Cosby, who played fellow agent Alexander Scott, on “I Spy.” The series, which mixed humor with high-stakes action, ran for three seasons on NBC from 1965 to 1968.

Mr. Culp’s agent, Hillard Elkins, told The A.P. that the actor died after collapsing on a sidewalk outside his home in Hollywood. The police say he hit his head while on a walk and was pronounced dead after arriving at a hospital.

A full obituary will follow.
