Edson Stroll (January 6, 1929 – July 18, 2011) was an American actor. He made over 20 film and television appearances since 1958.


Stroll began his career as a bodybuilder in the 1950s. He then moved to acting in 1958 with bit parts on television shows such as How to Marry a Millionaire, Sea Hunt and The Twilight Zone ("The Eye of the Beholder" and "The Trade-Ins"). He then landed a steady role on McHale's Navy as Virgil Edwards.

Fans of slapstick comedy team The Three Stooges remember Stroll for his roles in two 1960s-era feature films, Snow White and the Three Stooges and The Three Stooges in Orbit.[1]

Throughout the 2000s, Stroll provided voice-overs, and occasionally appeared at Hollywood autograph signing shows, near his Marina del Rey home in Southern California.


Edson Stroll died of cancer on July 18, 2011 at age 82. Stroll is survived by Anita Winters, and a private scattering of his ashes was planned.[2]
