M*A*S*H actor David Ogden Stiers dies

David Ogden Stiers, who played the snobbish but sympathetic surgeon Winchester on television's M*A*S*H and later delighted a generation of children with voice roles in Disney movies, including as the clock Cogsworth in Beauty And The Beast, died last Saturday at his home in Newport, Oregon. He was 75. He had bladder cancer, his agent wrote in a tweet announcing the death.
