Steven Hill, best known as Law & Order‘s original district attorney Adam Schiff, passed away Tuesday in Manhattan at the age of 94, the New York Times reports.
Prior to his 1990-2000 run on the NBC drama, the actor — born Solomon Krakovsky — starred as Daniel Briggs in the freshman season of Mission: Impossible in 1966 but was replaced by Peter Graves for the duration of the series.
Hill’s television credits — ranging from Alfred Hitchcock Presents (1957) and The Untouchables (1962) to King (1978) and thirtysomething (1988) — date back to the early years of the medium, with four episodes of Actors Studio in 1949. (He was a charter member of the prestigious organization that gave the show its title.)
The actor is survived by his second wife and nine children.
