Wayne Rogers, best known for playing surgeon Trapper John McIntyre on the 1970s hit television show “M*A*S*H,” was joined by co-stars from the sitcom Tuesday as he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Rogers, 72, later became a successful entrepreneur and makes regular contributions on Fox News Channel as a finance and stock expert. He also appeared in the 2000 film “Frozen with Fear” and has made recent theater performances.

He was paired with actor Alan Alda on “M*A*S*H,” set in the Korean War, and the comedy duo became a favorite among U.S. television viewers.

“M*A*S*H” co-stars Loretta Swit and Jamie Farr joined Rogers as he received the 2,297th star during the sidewalk induction ceremony. Other guests included actor Peter Falk and TV legend Merv Griffin.
