Alan Alda (born Alfonso Joseph D'Abruzzo on January 28, 1936) is an Oscar-nominated and Emmy Award-winning American actor, writer, director and sometime political activist. He is most famous for his role as Hawkeye Pierce in the television series M*A*S*H. In the 1970s and 1980s he was viewed as the archetypal "sensitive male," though in recent years he has appeared in roles which counter that image..
"Be brave enough to live creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition.
