A very old, bearded man who appeared on the late night talk show LATE NIGHT WITH CONAN O’BRIEN/NBC/1993-2009. Oldie’s character was so frail looking that almost anything he did was funny to watch.
He appeared in over 100 comedy spots playing such roles as a high school street tough, a rock singer, a vampire, and the world’s oldest baseball player.
William Preston who played Oldie was an established stage and film actor. He died in 1998.
