Alan Alda is best known for his role as Hawkeye in the iconic show M*A*S*H. These days, Alan is 85 years old and was recently on the series Ray Donovan and has his own podcast called Clear+Vivid. In a recent interview, Alan said that he doesn’t really have a favorite role but he does have favorite memories from his many roles.
Alan said, “There are moments that I remember with real pleasure.” For instance, “the live debate on ‘The West Wing.’ It had a feeling of improvisation even though it [was scripted]. But it was very exciting. When you know in 30 seconds that the red light’s going on and millions of people are watching you.”
