Drive, He Said (1971) (as David Stiers) Pro owner


Has conducted 70 orchestras in over 100 appearances. He is Resident Conductor of the Newport Symphony Orchestra.

Some of the _"M*A*S*H (1972)"_ actors jokingly had his dressing room painted orange and purple while Stiers was off for Thanksgiving break.

Was a high school classmate of Chicago Sun-Times film critic Roger Ebert.

Provided the voice of Cogsworth the clock in Disney's "Beauty & the Beast". His advice to the Beast on what to give Belle, "Flowers, chocolates, promises you don't intend to keep...", was his own creation.

Provided several other voices for Disney: Gov. Ratcliffe & Wiggins in "Pocahontas" & "Pocahontas II"; Narrator in "Beauty & the Beast"; and the Archdeacon in "Hunchback of Notre Dame".

He is often given small roles in Woody Allen films for which he receives high billing considering his screen time.

On _M*A*S*H (1972)_ , he played an Harvard alum and in real life, Stiers taught theater games at Harvard.

Never learned to drive until the early 1980s, when a TV-movie role called for him to be seen driving.

Has a son from a relationship in the 1960s.

Graduated High School at North Eugene High School, Oregon.

Tallest cast member of the TV series M*A*S*H (1972).

Played French Horn in the orchestra at Julliard (rather more amusing when considering an episode of M*A*S*H where he bothers Hawkeye and B.J. with persistent bad Horn playing).
