Biography

Simon Scott served as General Bronson in "McHale's Navy," a comedic depiction of sailors in World War II. It's worth noting, however, that long before he poked fun at the military as an actor, he personally served in the Pacific theater during that war. Scott displayed a fighting spirit throughout his life, even when Alzheimer's eventually forced him to retire from acting. He died in 1991 due to complications from the degenerative disease, but he left behind a proud legacy in both film and television. He made his mark in movies like "Man of a Thousand Faces," in which James Cagney portrayed Lon Chaney in a tale of the silent actor's life. Scott was best known, though, for his part on the TV series "Trapper John, M.D.," a spin-off of the critically acclaimed Robert Altman film "MASH." In "Trapper John, M.D.," Simon Scott played Arnold Slocum, the hospital's administrator. One of Scott's few costarring roles was in the short-lived private detective series "Markham," in which he played John Riggs, assistant to PI Roy Markham.
