Personal Quote:

Unless you're a big movie star, regular television work is going to bring you more exposure than anything. Everybody has a television; not everybody goes to the movies. See more »

Trivia:

After the departure of Gary Burghoff and his character Walter "Radar" O'Reilly from M*A*S*H (1972), the producers planned to have Bailey's character Luther Rizzo take over as company clerk. However, Alan Alda was able to convince the producers to have Klinger (Jamie Farr) take the role instead. See more »
