Personal Quote:

The benefits from stardom as Klinger outweigh any setbacks. It's a double-edged sword. What makes you famous is what interferes with getting other roles. But there are things that never would have happened without M*A*S*H (1972). There certainly would be no Jamie Farr Kroger Golf Classic. See more »
