No, it's not the little dude who played Radar. Hmmm, why were you thinking that?
David Ogden Stiers, the 60-something actor best know for playing snooty Charles Winchester on the classic sitcom M*A*S*H, recently came out of the closet.
The Emmy-nominated Stiers has been doing mostly family stuff like cartoon voice-overs since M*A*S*H ended in the 80s, and a bunch of Woody Allen movies and TV guest shots, and is also a symphony conductor.
I was a kid during the prime of M*A*S*H and didn't really watch it, though I have caught some since then, and it know what a force it was both culturally and commercially. How cool would it have been for him to come out then? Or would it have killed his career? Let's see what happens with Ricky Martin and Neil Patrick Harris.
Stiers says that he kept his private life quiet for career reasons. So why come out now? Stiers says because he wants to find a partner and love. Awww.....
