Interesting Facts

1 He is buried at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles, California.
2 Wayne Rogers' role as Trapper John McIntyre on "MASH" was among the most beloved characters on one of the most popular TV shows of all time. He died on a New Year's eve, Thursday, December 31, 2015, at age 82. The actor was surrounded by family when he died in Los Angeles, CA, of complications from pneumonia, his publicist and longtime friend Rona Menace reported. Rogers' U.S.Army surgeon Trapper John was one of the most beloved characters, and half of one of the most beloved duos, in TV history, despite the actor's appearing in only the first three of the series eleven seasons on CBS-TV. The two skilled doctors blew off steam between surgeries by pulling pranks, romancing nurses and tormenting their tentmate, Frank Burns, always with an endless supply of booze and one-liners at the ready. In one classic moment, Trapper reaches out as though he's checking for rain and says, "Hmm, feels like it's going to martini," as Hawkeye promptly passes him a drink. And in another line that typified the show's ethos, Trapper answers a question with "How should I know? I dropped out of school to become a doctor." Rogers was on "MASH" from 1972 to 1975, becoming one of many original cast members to leave the wildly popular show that lasted until 1983. He was initially considered for Alda's character, but he preferred Trapper's sunnier disposition to Hawkeye's darkly acerbic personality. The characters were essentially equals when the show began, but the series increasingly focused on Alda, which was a factor in Rogers' departure. Two other actors played Trapper in other incarnations. Elliot Gould was the same character in the "MASH" feature film that preceded the TV show, and Pernell Roberts played the title character in the 1980s spinoff television drama "Trapper John, M.D." An Alabama native and Princeton graduate, Rogers had parts on many short-lived shows before "MASH," specializing in westerns such as "Law of the Plainsman" and "Stagecoach West." He had a bit part in the 1967 feature film "Cool Hand Luke" with Paul Newman. In years after "MASH", he returned to TV regularly with a recurring role in the early 1990s on CBS's mystery series "Murder, She Wrote." Rogers moved beyond acting to see success later in life as a money manager and investor. In 1988 and 1990, he appeared as an expert witness before the House Judiciary Committee to speak in favor of maintaining the Glass-Steagall banking act of the 1930s. In recent years he was a regular panelist on the Fox Business News stock investment show "Cashin' In." Rogers is survived by his wife, Amy; two children, Bill and Laura; and four grandchildren..
3 Good friends with Alan Alda.
4 Survived by his wife Amy Hirsh Rogers, two children Bill and Laura by his first marriage, and four grandchildren Alexander, Daniel, William and Anais.
5 Owns three homes: in Los Angeles, California, Destin, Florida, and Deer Valley, Utah.
6 Authored the book "Make Your Own Rules: A Renegade Guide to Unconventional Success" (2001). This is a business book on how to succeed in business peppered with personal anecdotes.
7 Has been the managing director of the Stop-N-Save convenience food chains in Tallahasse, Florida, for almost 10 years. [August 2003]
8 Was one of three investors in the Kleinfeld bridal store in New York City and created a chain of bridal stores with initial outlets in Chicago, Illinois, and Los Angeles, California.
9 Chairman and president of Wayne Rogers & Co., a stock trading investment company.
10 Chairman of the Board and co-owner, with Ronnie Rothstein, of "Kleinfeld Bridal".
11 He was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 7018 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California, on December 13, 2005.
12 After leaving M*A*S*H (1972), he turned down the lead role on the television series Trapper John, M.D. (1979) because he did not want to be typecast as a doctor on television. Ironically, he accepted a role as a doctor shortly thereafter on another television series, House Calls (1979).
13 Described M*A*S*H (1972) co-star McLean Stevenson as being "one of the funniest men I had ever met", fondly recalling in an interview one day on the set wherein Stevenson had been goofing around with a fly swatter.
14 In addition to the disputes about contracts, he says he also left M*A*S*H (1972) because he felt the writers were not giving Trapper John any character development. Specifically, he did not like how the Trapper John character began and ended the movie with the same role significance as Hawkeye (e.g., Trapper John was brought into the movie because the unit needed a "chest cutter") but deteriorated in role significance as the TV show progressed.
15 Was the second actor to play the "M*A*S*H" character Trapper John McIntyre, the first one being Elliott Gould in the film MASH (1970) and the third one being Pernell Roberts on the television series Trapper John, M.D. (1979).
16 Graduated with a history degree in 1954 from Princeton University, where he was a member of the Princeton Triangle Club, and served in the United States Navy before becoming an actor.
17 Attended Ramsay High School in Birmingham, Alabama, and graduated from the Webb School in Bell Buckle, Tennessee.
18 When he left M*A*S*H (1972) in 1975, he was sued for breach of contract, but the case was thrown out because he had no contract. Producers wanted him to sign a morality clause, in which he could be suspended or fired at any time, and he refused because he wanted the same privilege regarding the producers.


1 [on the pilot for Stagecoach West (1960)] As soon as I saw it, I thought: "This is really bad" and caught the next plane back to New York.
2 [discussing his contract dispute, after leaving M*A*S*H (1972)] They sue, you countersue. It's business.
3 [on leaving the sitcom M*A*S*H (1972) in retrospect] If I had known that the show was gonna run that long, I probably would have kept my mouth shut and stayed put.
4 Somebody once told me I shouldn't try to change Hollywood. That isn't my point at all. I don't want Hollywood to change me.
