John Bliss (8 October 1930 - February 28, 2008) was an American actor known for playing the role of the 8th grade Social Studies teacher and former Principal Irving Pal on Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide. He was also seen in the first episode of Out of Jimmy's Head. He fondly remembered George Clooney, and how George was so polite and called him "Mr. Bliss" and offered him food on the set of Intolerable Cruelty.

Bliss played Mr. Pickering in the TV series Andy Richter Controls the Universe

He had many stories to tell of his life's adventures, and was a very talented actor. During some of his storytelling, he told us he was born to acting parents in Peoria, Illinois, but moved from time to time (Florida, New York, Europe). When he was a child, acting on the stage with his parents, they rarely told others of their true profession of acting, because it was "looked down upon in those days."

John died on February 28, 2008 from complications of aortic aneurysm. He was 77.
