Your mission… I.D. these members of the IMF team on Mission: Impossible

Remember all these characters from the original show?


The fuse is lit… the clock is ticking… time to take a television quiz!

Mission: Impossible continues to be a blockbuster franchise to this day. It all began in 1966 with the original series. With cast members like Leonard Nimoy and Martin Landau, no wonder it was a hit. 

Over its seven-season run, M:I utilized a dozen or so skilled team members on its Impossible Missions Force. See if you remember all these IMF agents!

Watch Mission: Impossible on MeTV!

  1. Peter Graves played this leader of the IMF from the second season onward. (Jon Voight played the character in the 1996 movie.)
  2. Rollin was the "man of a million faces" and had a last name that was a human body part. What is his name?
  3. Leonard Nimoy later became the master of disguise, named after a European city.
  4. Barbara Bain played this spicy model/actress on the squad.
  5. Greg Morris appeared in the most episodes. Recognize his character with a mustache?
  6. After Morris, Peter Lupus appeared in the second-most episodes as…?
  7. Sam Elliott is hard to recognize with his iconic mustache as the doctor…?
  8. Steven Hill portrayed this IMF leader in season one.
  9. Lesley Ann Warren was this female member of the team in season five.
  10. Lynda Day George was the cosmetologist and mistress-of-disguise named Lisa, but people mostly called her by her last name…?
  11. Lee Meriwether was an early temporary replacement for Barbara Bain playing this character.
  12. Barbara Anderson (from Ironside) briefly filled in as this secret agent in the final season.

At no point in the original series was Casey ever called anything else. It was only in the revival series that they decided to cover up the goof of naming two different agents Casey, did they come up with the nonsense that Casey was the last name of the second agent.

Errr, I meant the first agent.

I refuse to see the movie mission Impossible with Tom Cruise . The original series was more interesting to me .
TheDavBow3 AngelaVFrink 35 months ago
Oh yes, the original series was much more interesting and those 1960s/early 70s story lines were great. I still like watching the new Tom Cruise movies. I kind of don't equate the new movies with Mission Impossible. Character names are different, after the 1st movie. It's just a series of action movies really. When I'm watching the movies, I don't think MI. At least until the theme song would play 😉. But you're right, the TV show is way more interesting.

Same here, though I have different reasons. Like Greg Morris, I turned away from the movies when they threw Jim Phelps under the bus.

I assume that the real Jim Phelps died a hero’s death at some point between the end of the revival TV series in 1990 and the start of the movie series in 1996, and the “Phelps” we saw in the first movie was an impostor who infiltrated the IMF for nefarious purposes. It makes the film series more acceptable with that retcon in my mind.

I choose to continue boycotting the entire Tom Cruise fiasco.

All of the original characters had a double consonant in their names: Briggs, Rollin, Cinnamon, Collier (Barney) and Willy.

(I refuse to believe the Jim Phelps in the movie is the same character as the series. Maybe a namesake relative who took over from the original Phelps after he retired in 1990 [the end of the second series].)

I loved this show. What TC and greedy producers did to it in movies... INSULTING.

Lee mariwhether I did not remember
TheDavBow3 AngelaVFrink 35 months ago
The only character I remember, other than the originals, was Leonard Nimoy as Paris. I'll have to keep watching to see the characters in the later episodes.

9/12. Willie was my favorite as a kid.
AngelaVFrink TheDavBow3 35 months ago
Cinnamon Carter has to be my favorite, I love the episode when she was a widow twice in one day . lol she sent men to her death by lying and she moves on lol
TheDavBow3 AngelaVFrink 35 months ago
I liked Willy was just because he was big and strong 😄. I wanted to be like that. Now I'd rather be a scientific genius like Barney 😉😊. I might be retired by now 😋

12/12 That was tougher than I thought. I thought it would be guest stars. I didn't know Sam Elliott's character name, but I thought I'd heard Jim use that first name on occasion. Had to guess on Barbara Anderson's character. The rest I knew, though.
