Alan Alda received the Life Achievement Award from SAG-AFTRA tonight. Richly deserved. Alan WAS M*A*S*H! The depth and breadth of his acting, not to mention writing and directing simply made the show that millions watched. Watched longer than the war it was intended to depict.
Alan is 83 but the baton has already been passed. Watch Dr. Max Goodwin on NBC's New Amsterdam, played by Ryan Eggold. He embodies the same range of emotions, versatility, believability and credibility that Alan brought to the role of Captain Benjamin Franklin Pierce, M.D.
