Born in small-town California, Larry Linville is best known for playing the scheming Major Frank Burns on the beloved "M.A.S.H." TV series. Linville started out as an actor by playing small parts on episodes of late-1960s television shows, including TV series "Marcus Welby, M.D. " and "Bonanza," with his most notable early role being a cop on the crime drama "Mannix." In '72, Linville joined the cast of "M.A.S.H. ," which would go on to become one of the most revered television shows of all time. While "M.A.S.H. " made Linville a minor celebrity, it also kept him very busy, with the actor appearing in little outside of the series until he departed in '77. After leaving "M.A.S.H. ," Linville often appeared in guest spots on more lighthearted comedies, including "The Love Boat" and "The Jeffersons," and never became a regular on any other ongoing program. During the late '90s, Linville developed health problems and died in 2000 of cancer. However, he is fondly remembered by his "M.A.S.H." peers and fans.
