About Orson Bean

Orson Bean (born Dallas Frederick Burrows; July 22, 1928 – February 7, 2020) 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."

Death

On February 7, 2020, while walking near Venice Boulevard and Shell Avenue in the Venice section of Los Angeles, Bean was struck by two drivers, with the second vehicle striking him fatally. "The car which was traveling westbound did not see him and clipped him and he went down," said Los Angeles Police Department Captain Brian Wendling. "A second vehicle's driver was distracted by people trying to slow him down: when the driver looked ahead, a second traffic collision occurred and it caused the death of Bean."
