Efrem Zimbalist Jr. finally got his badge.
The actor who portrayed cool and canny Inspector Lewis Erskine on the TV series “The F.B.I.” was named an honorary special agent Monday -- the FBI’s highest civilian honor.
The 91-year-old actor was presented with the badge by FBI Director Robert Mueller. He praised Zimbalist as an icon who inspired a generation of FBI agents.
The show ran from 1965 to 1974.
