“I Did NOT, Suh!”

‘Mockingbird’ actor Peters dies at 78
He also played Admiral Cartwright in ‘Star Trek’ films

LOS ANGELES – Actor Brock Peters, best known for his heartbreaking performance as the black man falsely accused of rape in “To Kill a Mockingbird,” died Tuesday at his home after battling pancreatic cancer. He was 78.

One of the most powerful, charismatic and classy actors I’ve ever seen. Tom Robinson makes me cry every time I see the movie.
