David Ogden Stiers dead

MASH star David Ogden Stiers dies aged 75 following battle with bladder cancer

The actor's agent Mitchell Stubbs confirmed Saturday night in an email that Stiers died after battling bladder cancer.

"His talent was only surpassed by his heart", he wrote to his 438 followers. The character was often the comic foil to the hijinks of Alda's "Hawkeye" and Mike Farrell's Captain B.J. Hunnicutt.

Actor David Ogden Stiers has died at age 75.

Stiers also lent his voice to several animated films, TV shows, audiobooks and video games, including Lilo & Stitch, Spirited Away, The Hunchback of Notre Dameand Pocahontas.

His other screen credits include Kojak, Charlie's Angels, The Regular Show, Stargate: Atlantis, Star Trek: The Next Generation and The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and on Twitter it became clear that his work had touched many generations of viewers.

In addition to playing the aristocratic Maj. So it was always poignant when an emotional crack opened in his self-satisfied mien. Stiers' character, while arrogant, also showed an empathy and wit his predecessor lacked.

"I wish to spend my life's twilight being just who I am", he said in 2009.

I suppose it's a mixed blessing for an actor to have such an iconic role that it's the headline in every obituary written about them despite decades of stellar work afterward.

Stiers joined the M*A*S*H cast at the beginning of its sixth season and replacing Larry Linville after he left the series. It never seemed plausible that Burns made it through medical school and a surgery residency, let alone was sufficiently accomplished to be commissioned a major.
