Alan Alda's Touching Tribute to Late 'M*A*S*H' Co-star
Wayne Rogers, best known for his starring role as "Trapper John" on TV's "M*A*S*H" in the '70s, died of pneumonia at 82 on New Year's Eve.
In a touching tribute, his old co-star Alan Alda tweeted of Rogers: "He was smart, funny, curious and dedicated. We made a pact to give MASH all we had and it bonded us. I loved Wayne. I'll miss him very much."
Rogers also starred with Lynn Redgrave on the series "House Calls" and later rebranded himself as a money manager, making frequent appearances on TV as an investment expert.
