“Mr. Vaughn passed away at 7:30 this morning,” Sullivan said, calling Vaughn “a great human being and a great actor.”

“The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” (United Network Command for Law and Enforcement) aired from 1964-68 and made Vaughn one of TV’s biggest stars.

Vaughn got his start in the movies as an extra on “The Ten Commandments” in 1956. Three years later he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for “The Young Philadelphians,” and also played a gunman in the classic 1960 film “The Magnificent Seven.”

Although most closely associated with television, stretching back to appearances on such foundational series as Gunsmoke, Father Knows Best, Wagon Train, The Rifleman and The Dick Van Dyke Show, Vaughn boasted a solid résumé of feature film work — 1958’s Teenage Cave Man notwithstanding. In addition to The Young Philadelphians (1959), The Magnificent Seven (1960), and Steve McQueen car-chase classic Bullitt (1968), Vaughn had memorable parts in such popular pictures as The Towering Inferno (1974), S.O.B. (1981), Superman III (1983) and, as the uncredited voice of Proteus IV, Demon Seed (1977). (h/t Deadline)

But it was “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” that made Vaugh a household name. The show was an immediate hit when it debuted in 1964. It ran until 1968, part of an avalanche of secret-agent movies and TV shows touched off the James Bond craze.
