He seemed old then. Good comic character, well-portrayed

I never really watched that show but I really liked the actor. I loved him on the short lived “Ellery Queen” TV series. He had a recurring role as supercilious radio sleuth Simon Brimmer. It was a splendid character.

Reading his Wikipedia entry, he has a similar family background as Baron's family coming to Texas.
