House Peters Jr. so called Mr Clean , a TV actor who became the original Mr. Clean in Proctor & Gamble’s commercials for household cleaners, died Wednesday. He was 92.
The 92-year-old actor played many supporting roles throughout his career, but became best-known in the 50’s and 60’s for his role as the hoop earring wearing, muscular bald man known as “Mr. Clean,” who took a tough stance on dirt and grime.
“He always played the heavy,” Jon Peters said, referring to his father’s customary roles as a villain or brawny character. “Even though he wasn’t happy about being cast in those roles, he worked really hard at it.”
He also is survived by his wife, Lucy Pickett, a daughter, another son and four grandchildren.If you liked this post please buy me a cup of coffee to quench my thirst
