Actor Orson Bean was hit and killed by a car in Los Angeles, authorities report on Friday night. He was 91 year old.
The Los Angeles County coroner’s office confirmed Bean died on Friday night, stating that it was being investigated as a “traffic-related” fatality.
The coroner’s office provided the location where Bean was found, which matched reports from local news outlets.
Bean was popular for TV game shows as “To Tell the Truth” and he played a crotchety merchant on “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman.” He also appeared in a number of films — notably, “Anatomy of a Murder” and “Being John Malkovich” — and starred in several top Broadway productions, receiving a Tony nod for the 1962 Comden-Green musical “Subways Are for Sleeping.” But fans remembered him most for his many TV appearances from the 1950s onward.
Bean wrote a memoir called “Too Much Is Not Enough” and a book about a non-traditional therapy called “Me and the Orgone.”
He co-founded the Sons of the Desert, an organization dedicated to comedians Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, with chapters around the world.
He is survived by a daughter, Michele, from his first marriage to Jacqueline de Sibour, and sons Max and Ezekiel and daughter Susannah from his marriage to Carolyn Maxwell.
