A six-time UsefulNotes/EmmyAward and UsefulNotes/GoldenGlobeAward winner, he's enjoyed a highly accomplished career with a litany of roles under his belt. However, his best-known role is likely the iconic part of Captain Hawkeye Pierce in the long-running TV series ''Series/{{MASH}}''. In contrast to the fun-loving and rebellious Hawkeye, Alda has mostly played staunch authority figures and/or villains in his later career (this can partially be explained by an incident with an overzealous dentist when Alda was in his 50s; the man cut through the frenum of Alda's upper lip, removing part of its support and movement structure and making it all but impossible for Alda to smile correctly).

He's also known for his simultaneously thick ''and'' nasally voice and his outspoken political views. Most definitely a CoolOldGuy.
