He soon turned up as a radio regular, perhaps his most familiar role being Jane Ace's shiftless, scheming brother Johnny in Easy Aces. A few years later he met Orson Welles, who invited him to join the Mercury Theatre, where he participated in the notorious 1938 radio broadcast of The War of the Worlds. He was a founding member of AFTRA.
