He was also Solovar in the JLU series, i just saw on his imdb.
And Penguin in a Batman cartoon movie.
Bunch of Disney movies...he had major geek cred.
Always liked him on MASH better than Frank.

He did an amazing job as Dr. Winchester on MASH. A really hard role to play right, and he nailed it. Stuffy, uptight and pretentious, but whip-smart, clever and a brilliant doctor. He wasn't a goon, like Frank.

Exactly.
He wasnt a Frank clone, he proved that his very first appearance. Loved his character.

He was in a lot of Disney movies- Cogsworth's "Promises you don't intend to KEEP" line was an ad-lib that just SLAYED them in the recording studio, and got him the role of Governor Ratcliffe in Pocahontas.

Best Winchester moments on M*A*S*H- getting Colonel Flagg fired once and for all via trickery (getting blackmailed into helping him on a "Spy mission", but leading him towards a high-level South Korean official- Hawkeye, BJ AND Potter were all impressed). Begging to find out what death was like from a dying soldier, because his brother had died while he was young ("PLEASE!!! TELL ME how you're feeling!"). A heart-to-heart with Hawkeye, who was worried about his ailing father's health ("I have a father- YOU have a DAD"). Dude made the role of a stuffy, rich, stick-in-the-mud, fun-hating asshole and made him both likeable and the equal of Hawkeye & BJ. A really, really hard role to play.
