-Here's a healthy LIST ....

=Shirley Jones - The Partridge Family

=Charlotte Rae, The Facts of Life Age 92.

=Angela Lansbury of Murder, She Wrote

=Marla Gibbs, of 227, is age 86.
Marla Gibbs (Florence) and Belinda Tolbert (Jenny) are the last surviving cast members of my favorite show "The Jeffersons".

=Damon Evans is still living from "The Jeffersons". He was the second actor to play 'Lionel Jefferson'.

=Robert Brown, 91, as 'Jason Bolt' of "Here Come the Bride"

=Betty White of "Life With Elizabeth" is age 96.

=Dick Van Dyke in 92 of "The Dick Van Dyke Show, also belongs on the list of recording acts who are at least 80 years old ...
...because he was on "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" (#66 on the Hot 100 in 1965).

=Julie Andrews also belongs on the music list, for the same reason, because she is 82.

=John Astin, 87, of "I'm Dickens, He's Fenster", and "The Addams Family".

=Dabney Coleman, 86, of "Buffalo Bill", "Slap Maxwell"

=Doris Day, 96 of "The Doris Day Show".

=Stuart Whitman, 90 of "Cimarron Strip".

=Jerry Stiller on "Seinfeld", and "The King of Queens".

=Gavin MacLeod (McHale's Navy & Love Boat), Ed Asner (MTM & Lou Grant), Cloris Leachman (MTM & Phyllis), Polly Holliday (Alice & Flo), Linda Lavin (Alice), William Shatner ( Star Trek).

=Bob Newhart, 88 of "The Bob Newhart Show".

=Earl Cameron age 100 of Dr. Who
I believe the youngest is Marlo Thomas (born November 21, 1937). That's right--That Girl is 80!
-Next to qualify (?): Richard Benjamin (He & She; born May 22, 1938).

=Paula Prentiss, 80, actually had top billing in "He & She".
-Then why wasn't the show called "She & He?".
Anyway, the subject is lead actors, not actors listed first in the credits.

=Barbara Eden, 86 of "I Dream of Jeannie"

=William Roache, now 86, has played 'Ken Barlow' in "Coronation Street" since December 1960.

=Tom Baker, who played the 4th incarnation of Doctor Who is 84.

The winner must be actor Norman Lloyd, now 103, who was regular cast member ('Dr. Daniel Auschlander') on TV hospital drama "St. Elsewhere"!
-His series co-star regular Williams Daniels, who played 'Dr. Mark Craig' on the series run from 1982-1988, is now 91.

=Unlike Daniels, Lloyd has never been a series lead...
...although there's still time.

=Michael Callan (Occasional Wife), and James Darren/Robert Colbert from "Time Tunnel".

=James Drury as The Virginian! And Robert Conrad too.

=Clint Walker of Cheyenne is 91 this month!
-Time flies!

=Clu Gulager, 89 was Billy the Kid in "The Tall Man" 1960 -

=Surprised no one's mentioned William Shatner, 87 of "Star Trek", "TJ Hooker".

=Carol Burnett is 85, of The Carol Burnett Show

=Alan Alda, 82 of MASH

=Also David Hartman, Burt Reynolds, Ned Beatty, Robert Morse, Tom Smothers, Ronnie Schell, George Segal, Kaye Ballard, Ken Berry, Judd Hirsch, Hector Elizondo, Ellen Burstyn, Paul Sand, Robert Wagner, Angie Dickinson, Robert Blake ...
-and that's just off the top of my head. And Oh, yeah. And Bill Cosby.

=Robert Fuller (84) from Laramie and Will Hutchins (88) from Sugerfoot.

=Richard Chamberlain is 84, TV's "Dr Kildare"Sherlock

Carl Reiner, Katherine Helmond, Dwayne Hickman, George Maharis, Ruth Buzzi, Earl Holliman, Tim Conway, Monte Markham, Pat Crowley, Mark Miller, Julie Newmar, Jackie Mason Joan, are a few others.

=Earl Holiman, 89, (Police Woman) should get extra credit for being the star of the 1st Twilight Zone!

=Roy Thinnes, 80 from "The Invaders"

=June Lockhart & David Mccallum

At age 95 each: Gloria Henry "Dennis The Menace"; & Bill Macy "Maude".
-Pretty old.

=Hal Holbrook (93) "The Bold Ones: The Senator" & "Evening Shade",
-Possibly other shows!

=At age 93 each: Scottie MacGregor "Little House on the Prairie"; Marge Redmond "The Flying Nun"; Joseph Campanella ("Mannix"/"One Day ata Time").
-Not sure these are considered "lead roles", but I'd say so. ...maybe co-starring.

=At age 92 each: Val Bisoglio "Quincy"; and Robert Clary "Hogan's Heroes"
-Mr. Clary has a very interesting bio & background, btw.
