RIP Orson Bean

Post by donnie »

Orson Bean passed away from an accident today at the age of 91. :( He was stuck by a car near his home in Venice, CA.

He was one of my all time favorites from the old game shows. Besides being a long-time panelist on To Tell the Truth, he was also active in film and on stage, as well as being a comedian, writer, and producer. RIP, Orson.

It's really messed up that he ended up dying this way. He was struck by a car and then after he fell, he was hit by another.

I have to chime in on this too. It's bad enough he died but what a way to go, absolutely horrible. He was such a brilliant funny man.
