Veteran character actor Charles Lane has died at the age of 102 (yes one hundred and two).
For those who are saying 'who the heck is Charles Lane', I have included a link to his IMDB profile but here are a few highlights
He was the assistant to the evil banker in Its a Wonderful Life
He was the bad guy in Petticoat Junction
He was the desk clerk, the expectant father, the passport clerk and a casting director in I Love Lucy.
He was the bad guy in several Beverly Hillbillies episodes
He was the grumpy guy in several Bewitched episodes
His first role was in 1931, his last film role was in 1995 but he actually did narration for the Night Before Christmas in 2006 when he was over 100 years old.
Basically 75 years of acting.
Oh, and he also survived the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, he was a baby then....
Basically if you watched a comedy between 1950 and 1980 and there was a role for the crotchety old curmudgeon, he was the guy.
