Half-Life 2 actor passes away

Robert Culp played Dr Wallace Breen.

Actor Robert Culp, who played the role of Dr Wallace Breen in Half-Life 2, has passed away aged 79.

Culp died yesterday after falling down while walking near his home in Los Angeles, according to the LA Times.

While gamers will remember Culp for his sinister turn as the administrator of City 17 in Half-Life 2, his career spanned more than 50 years on TV and in film, detailed in this CNN obituary (thanks Kotaku).
