Robert Cleveland Johnson, known professionally as Bob Johnson, was an American actor and voice actor who played supporting roles on series television and in films from the late 1950s until a few years before his death.
He was a former singer and an accountant at Daystar Productions, which produced The Outer Limits. He frequently provided the voices of numerous alien creature on Star Trek and The Outer Limits -- including the episode "The Guests" -- for which he was uncredited, and may have been involved in English-language dubbing on lesser-known spaghetti westerns.
However, Johnson is probably best known as the "voice behind the scenes", who gave Special Agents Dan Briggs and Jim Phelps their recorded mission briefings on both incarnations of the Mission: Impossible television series.
Johnson was born in Portland, Oregon and died in Molokai, Hawaii.
- Best remembered by the public as the voice on the tape recorder giving Jim Phelps his mission on "Mission: Impossible" (1966) and "Mission: Impossible" (1988).
