Wayne Rogers Remembered at the Emmys

1 Comment

The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards aired live on ABC last night with Jimmy Kimmel as host. As it does every year, the telecast included an “In Memoriam” segment. This year, Tori Kelly performed an acoustic cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” as clips and pictures of dozens of TV stars and industry professionals were shown on screen.

Among those featured in the segment was Wayne Rogers, who passed away on December 31st, 2015:

Whoever edited the segment chose a brief snippet from “Radar’s Report” in which Trapper confronts the Chinese soldier who caused him to lose a patient during surgery. It’s a dark moment and among the best work Rogers did on M*A*S*H.

Others included in the “In Memoriam” segment were Steven Hill, Al Molinaro, Garry Shandling, Dan Haggerty, Patty Duke, Fred Thompson, Abe Vigoda, Alan Young, and Hugh O’Brian.
