      Tom Poston

      Tom Poston

      Highest Rated: 60% Cold Turkey (1971)

      Lowest Rated: Not Available

      Birthday: Oct 17, 1921

      Birthplace: Columbus, Ohio, USA

      A tall, Everyman actor with drooping eyes that somehow want to reveal more than one would think at first glance, Tom Poston has had a lengthy career on stage and TV, often on panel shows, often playing slow-witted characters who can surprise with their bursts of logic and intelligence. In the 1980s and 90s, Poston was often seen as a sidekick to Bob Newhart, Tim Conway, and others, but it would probably surprise many to know that Poston began his career on Broadway in the Jose Ferrer production of "Cyrano de Bergerac," a role that Poston later played on several occasions.
