Wayne Rogers Mash

When Rogers was approached for M*A*S*H, he planned to audition for the role of Hawkeye Pierce. He found the character too cynical, however, and asked to screen test as Trapper John, whose outlook was brighter. Rogers was told that Trapper and Hawkeye would have equal importance as characters. This changed after Alan Alda, whose acting career and résumé up to that point had outshone that of Rogers, was cast as Hawkeye and proved to be more popular with the audience. Rogers enjoyed working with Alda and the rest of the cast as a whole (Alda and Rogers quickly became close friends) but eventually chafed that the writers were devoting the show’s best humorous and dramatic moments to Alda.

When the writers took the liberty of making Hawkeye a thoracic surgeon in the episode “Dear Dad”, even though Trapper was the unit’s only thoracic surgeon in the movie and the novel, Rogers felt Trapper had been stripped of his credentials.

On the M*A*S*H 30th Anniversary Reunion Television Special aired by Fox-TV in 2002, Rogers spoke on the differences between the Hawkeye and Trapper characters, saying, “Alan [Alda] and I both used to discuss ways on how to distinguish the differences between the two characters as to where there would be a variance… My character  was a little more impulsive [than Hawkeye].” Rogers considerably reduced his Alabama accent for the character of Trapper.

He succeeded Elliott Gould, who had played the character in the Robert Altman movie MASH, and was himself succeeded by Pernell Roberts on the M*A*S*H spin-off Trapper John, M.D. After three seasons, Rogers left the show.

Wayne Rogers Cause Of Death

Rogers died on December 31, 2015, from complications of pneumonia in Los Angeles, California, at the age of 82. He died exactly one year before fellow M*A*S*H cast member William Christopher.
