The entire time Alan Alda was in M*A*S*H, he was living in Leonia, NJ.
He commuted to LA every week for 11 years. His wife and daughters lived in NJ, and he didn’t want to uproot his family to LA, as he didn’t know how long the show would last.
I love Alan Alda. I think I fell for him as an adult in Flirting With Disaster (1996). He always seems so kind, warm, smart and funny. And he looks hot in army greens. And I love the above story about him. I mean, I’m also sorta shocked that they didn’t pick up and jet off to Cali, but still. Hawkeye forever.
