EDIT
Just Call Me Mike
AIRED:
Mike Farrell reveals his personal story in Just Call Me Mike: A Journey to Actor and Activist .After gaining international attention for his role as B.J. Hunnicutt in the much-beloved television series M*A*S*H, Mike Farrell embarked upon a more lasting path into the world's social consciousness: as a compassionate human rights advocate. Amply demonstrated in this optimistic narrative, Farrell's growing celebrity as an actor, writer, producer, and director put him in the unique position to witness, and participate in, the efforts of peace workers at home and throughout the world. Just Call Me Mike presents first-hand accounts of the ravages of war and oppression in Cambodia, El Salvador, Bosnia, Rwanda, and the Gaza Strip, and of Farrell's activism against the death penalty in the US.Farrell writes too about his early years as a timid but restless teenager in West Hollywood, delivering groceries to the homes of Jack Benny, Lucille Ball, Jimmy Stewart and countless others, while dreaming of having his own career as an actor. He relates his years as a Marine recruit, and his professional development from young soap opera player to the amiable TV star, and on to his work as a producer. Farrell serves as cochair emeritus of Human Rights Watch in Southern California, and cofounded Artists United to Win Without War. As president of Death Penalty Focus, he continues to speak, write, and coordinate efforts to stop executions - Cody's Booksmoreless
