Peter Brocco (January 16, 1903 – December 20, 1992) was an American film and TV character actor for nearly 60 years.
He appeared as a criminal type in several episodes of Adventures of Superman. He holds the distinction of having been killed off in two of them, a relative rarity for villains in the series. In the first, The Secret of Superman, he deduces that Kent is Superman, but is killed in a police shootout soon after. In The Clown Who Cried, he falls off a building and Superman is unable to save him. He also appeared as "The Spector" in The Phantom Ring, where the criminals developed a machine that can make them invisible. Finally, in that episode, he survives, albeit rather banged up by Superman.
Brocco played Colonel Matterson, a patient suffering from dementia, in the Academy Award-winning One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975).
