'M*A*S*H*' Star David Ogden Stiers Dead at 75

"His talent was only surpassed by his heart", the agency added.

Actor David Ogden Stiers, here pictured attending a special screening and panel discussion of "Beauty and the Beast" in 2016, has died, aged 75.

Stiers is best known for playing U.S. Army Maj. But his role as the stuffy but sympathetic Charles Winchester III in "M*A*S*H" cemented his reputation as an actor of comedic and dramatic range.

Stiers was also known for the eight Perry Mason TV movies he made between 1986-88 in which his prosecuting attorney invariably lost to Raymond Burr's Mason, and more recently he had recurred on the USA Network series "The Dead Zone" from 2002-07 as the Rev. Eugene Purdy, the chief antagonist to star Anthony Michael Hall's Johnny Smith.

Steirs also starred in George Lucas' first film, THX 1138, and was a recurring character in the likes of Two Guys A Girl And A Pizza Place, and Regular Show.

For his work on "MASH", Stiers was twice Emmy nominated for outstanding supporting actor in a comedy or variety or music series, in 1981 and 1982. "He was an extraordinary person, a gifted actor, phenomenal musician, and my sweet, dear shy friend, who kiddingly called me Letitia".

Stiers did voice acting in several Disney animated films, voicing the character Cogsworth in Beauty and the Beast and played characters in Lilo & Stitch and Pocahontas.

Stiers joined M*A*S*H in its sixth season starting in 1977, replacing Larry Linville's Frank Burns as foil to Hawkeye (Alan Alda) and B.J.

His agent Mitchell Stubbs confirmed the sad news via Twitter saying that the star passed away at his home in Newport, Oregon.
