Orson Bean (born July 22, 1928) is an American film, television, and stage actor. He appeared frequently on televised game shows in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, but is perhaps best known as a long-time panelist on the television game show To Tell the Truth. Bean was born Dallas Frederick Burrows in Burlington, Vermont, to George Frederick Burrows and his wife Marian A. Pollard.
After being drafted near the end of War World Two and making it back home, he adopted his show-biz name and went on the road with a magic/comedy routine. He eventually shed the magic a and concentrated on stand-up comedy.
