“MASH” star Wayne Rogers has passed away at the age of 82-years-old. Sad, he was a great actor on a great show.
Rogers starred on the show as Trapper John from 1972 to 1975 where he received the most recognition.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rogers’ former publicist confirmed that the actor died from complications from pneumonia.
Rogers played the memorable doctor Trapper John for three years, from 1972-1975, on the hit TV series, which was adapted from the acclaimed film by Robert Altman.
His career spanned both film and TV, and he subsequently appeared in Cool Hand Luke, Ghosts of Mississippi and Murder, She Wrote.
So sad to see him go. He will be missed!
