Biography | show moreshow less
Peter Lupus, an American actor and bodybuilder, was born on June 17, 1932, in Indianapolis, Indiana. Known for his imposing physique and distinctive roles in both television and film, Lupus has enjoyed a fruitful career in the entertainment industry spanning several decades.

Lupus first made his mark as a bodybuilder, winning numerous titles, including "Mr. Indianapolis" and "Mr. Hercules." His impressive physique led to early roles in sword-and-sandal films of the 1960s, such as "Hercules and the Tyrants of Babylon" (1964). However, his most recognizable role came later with the television series "Mission: Impossible" (1966–1973), where he played the character Willy Armitage. As the muscle of the team, Lupus appeared in 161 episodes, establishing himself as a crucial part of the show's ensemble cast. His character's minimal dialogue but crucial role is remembered as a distinctive feature of the series. After "Mission: Impossible," Lupus continued to act in television and film, including a notable role in "Police Squad!" (1982). He also made appearances in popular shows like "The Love Boat" and "Murder, She Wrote."

Beyond his acting career, Lupus has been an advocate for natural bodybuilding and health. He founded his own nutrition company, Lupus Enterprises Group, promoting vitamins and other health supplements. As a testament to his physical prowess and commitment to fitness, in 2007, at the age of 75, Lupus set a world record by lifting 76,280 pounds in 27 minutes and 14 seconds.
