Robert Lansing (June 5, 1928 – October 23, 1994) was an American stage, film, and television actor. Born Robert Howell Brown in San Diego, California, he reportedly took his stage name from the state capital of Michigan. Notable TV roles include portrayals of Gen. George Custer on Branded, Gen. Frank Savage on Twelve O'Clock High, Peter Murphy/Mark Wainwright on The Man Who Never Was, Lt. Jack Curtis on Automan and Control on The Equalizer. Fans of Star Trek however remember him in particular for his portrayal of secret agent Gary Seven, a/k/a "Supervisor 194" in the episode "Assignment: Earth" (which was originally intended as the pilot for a spin-off series which NBC decided not to buy). He also had a notable appearance in The Twilight Zone episode, "The Long Morrow". His final role was that of "Paul Blaisdell" on the series Kung Fu: The Legend Continues. Lansing had a son from his marriage to actress Emily McLaughlin, which ended in divorce. He went on to marry Gari Hardy, but this marriage ended in divorce as well, although it produced another child for Lansing. He married, lastly, in 1981 to Anne Pivar. They remained together until Lansing's death in 1994, aged 66 from lung cancer. He was interred in Union Field Cemetery in Ridgewood, Queens, New York.
