David Ogden Stiers Dead at 75

But his role as the stuffy but sympathetic Charles Winchester III in "M*A*S*H" cemented his reputation as an actor of comedic and dramatic range.

Actor David Ogden Stiers, here pictured attending a special screening and panel discussion of "Beauty and the Beast" in 2016, has died, aged 75.

"I am very sad to report that David died this morning March 3, 2018 peacefully at his home in Newport, Oregon after a courageous battle with bladder cancer", Stubbs wrote. "His talent was only surpassed by his heart".

The actor, with his educated, resonant voice, was much in demand for narration and voiceover work, and for efforts as the narrator and as Cogsworth the clock in Disney's hit animated film "Beauty and the Beast", he shared a Grammy win for best recording for children and another nomination for album of the year. Classically trained at the Juilliard School and the Houseman Acting Company, he launched into films with voice-over work in George Lucas' "THX 1138". He went on to voice characters in seven more Disney movies and some of his other well-known characters include Governor Ratcliffe in the 1995 film Pocahontas, Archdeacon in the 1996 film The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Jumba in the 2002 film Lilo & Stitch. But Stiers' character, while arrogant, showed an empathy and wit that Burns lacked. The character was often the comic foil to the hijinks of Alda's "Hawkeye" and Mike Farrell's Captain B.J. Hunnicutt.

"I wish to spend my life's twilight being just who I am", he said in 2009.

Stiers had a busy post- "M*A*S*H" career with TV shows including the "North & South" miniseries and "Perry Mason" TV movies.
