Gary Burghoff is the actor who played the character Radar O'Reilly in both the movie and tv series M*A*S*H. He also played Charlie Brown in the 1967 off-Broadway musical You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. Born with a club foot and his left hand deformed, Burghoff uses props to deflect attention -- in Charlie Brown he had a baseball glove on that hand most of the time, and in the M*A*S*H tv series, he usually had a clipboard in it.

In addition to acting, Burghoff is also works as a professional jazz drummer and a wildlife painter.
