...We lost a member of the Breitbart family last night, legendary actor-comedian Orson Bean - father-in-law of the late Andrew Breitbart.
...In his last interview with the celebrated actor, Breitbart News editor-in-chief Alex Marlow said that the news company that Andrew built would not have been possible without Orson Bean.
...LOS ANGELES - Orson Bean, the witty actor and comedian, was hit and killed by a car in Los Angeles, authorities said.
...In a 1983 New York Times interview, he recalled his early career in small clubs where the show consisted of "Me - master of ceremonies, comedian and magician - maybe a dog act, and a stripper." It was a piano player in one such club, he said, who suggested replacing Dallas Burrows with some funny name like "Roger Duck" - or Orson Bean.
...Breitbart died in 2012 and Steve Bannon, later a top adviser to Donald Trump, took over Breitbart's eponymous website, for which Bean had penned occasional columns.
