  • David Ogden Stiers, Major Charles Emerson Winchester III in 'M*A*S*H,' Dies at 75

Actor David Ogden Stiers, best known for his role as the snooty Maj.

His agent Mitchell Stubbs confirmed the sad news on Twitter, telling fans that he had died at his home in Newport, Oregon.

Emmy Award-winning actor David Ogden Stiers has died at his OR home, following a battle with bladder cancer.

"My dear friend and client of 30 years is gone", representative Mitchell Stubbs of Mitchell K. Stubbs & Associates said in a statement to THR on Saturday.

The resonant-sounding actor was famous for his animated voice work, most notably as the clock Cogsworth in Disney's 1991's animated classic Beauty and the Beast.

He voiced Dr. Jumba Jookiba, the evil genius who created Stitch, in 2002's "Lilo & Stitch" and various spinoffs; once he became part of the Disney family, Stiers went on to do voicework on a large number of movies, made for TV or video content and videogames.

David collaborated with Disney on eight animated features, including Beauty And The Beast, Pocahontas and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. As the snobbish Winchester, Stiers was a ideal foil for Alan Alda's lovable, wise-cracking character Hawkeye Pierce.

His film credits included the Woody Allen films Mighty Aphrodite, Everyone Says I Love You, and The Curse of the Jade Scorpion, as well as Better Off Dead, Iron Will and The Majestic.

He played Major Charles Emerson Winchester IIII in the show for four years from 1977, and appeared in 131 episodes.

Steirs also starred in George Lucas' first film, THX 1138, and was a recurring character in the likes of Two Guys A Girl And A Pizza Place, and Regular Show. "I just can't have the same conversation 85 times a day". Winchester was a much more complex, rich foil for Hawkeye and Hunnicutt.
