Orson Bean

Orson Bean was a veteran American film, television, and stage actor, and a comedian, writer, and producer. He was a game show and talk show host and a "mainstay of Los Angeles's small theater scene." He appeared frequently on several televised game shows from the 1960s through the 1980s and was a long-time panelist on the television game show To Tell the Truth. "A storyteller par excellence", he was a favorite of Johnny Carson, appearing on The Tonight Show over 200 times. Bean became one of the first "neocelebrities" in television — someone who was "famous for being famous."
