    The distinguished actor known for such films as To Kill a Mockingbird and Carmen Jones has died at the age of 78:

    This could as easily have gone in the TV section, since Peters was also familiar from his work on the small screen, notably as Joseph Sisko on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. He also played Admiral Cartwright in several of the "first generation" ST films.

    He was a very good actor and I will always remember him for his roles in "To Kill a Mockingbird" and "The Pawnbroker". May he R.I.P.

    Not many people knew he was the voice of Darth Vader in the Star Wars Radio dramas. Held his own pretty well! He was a fine actor everywhere else I saw him.

    If, for some reason I can't fathom, you've never seen To Kill a Mockingbird ....maybe you could screen it this week for ol' Brock.

    Awesome actor. His expressive face and deep voice helped him stand out in any scene he was in (his performance in DS9 was wonderful). And what can be said about his To Kill A Mockingbird work that hasn't been said before? He will be missed.

    I only saw him in To Kill a Mockingbird, but he gave a great performance as Tom Robinson. [​IMG]

    He also played Darth Vader in all three of NPR's "Star Wars" radio dramas.
