Trivia and Quotes

He was funnier than Alan Alda was, and probably even a better actor, not to take away from Alda or any other charcter on that TV series. I think he was way underused after he left Mash, even if he was a type cast, he still could have been great in other shows. He still was good hosting the Mash Marathon today, and he is a much older man now. The character was very likeable, some of it was from the writers but mostly from the way he played the character.moreless
