  Alan Alda

Alan Alda has the distinction of being nominated for an Oscar, a Tony and an Emmy—as well as publishing a bestselling book—all in the same year (2005). His Emmy nomination was for his role on NBC’s “The West Wing.” His Tony nomination that year was for his role in the Broadway revival of David Mamet's “Glengarry Glen Ross.” On film that year, Alda appeared in Martin Scorsese’s “The Aviator,” for which he received an Academy Award nomination and for which he was also nominated for a British Academy Award.

Alda has earned international recognition as an actor, writer and director. His films include “Crimes and Misdemeanors,” “Everyone Says I Love You,” “Flirting With Disaster,” “Manhattan Murder Mystery,” “And The Band Played On,” as well as “The Seduction of Joe Tynan,” which he wrote, and “The Four Seasons,” “Sweet Liberty,” “A New Life” and “Betsy’s Wedding,” all of which he wrote and directed.

Alda played Hawkeye Pierce on the classic television series “M*A*S*H,” and wrote and directed many of the episodes. His 33 Emmy nominations include performances in 2009 for “30 Rock,” in 2006 for “West Wing” (winning his 6th Emmy), and in 1999 for “ER.”

In 1994 Alda was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame. He hosted the award-winning series Scientific American Frontiers on PBS for 11 years, interviewing leading scientists from around the world. In January 2010, he will host the PBS series “The Human Spark,” in which he will interview dozens of scientists, searching for answers to the question: What is it that makes us human? Alda was presented with the National Science Board’s Public Service Award in 2006 for his efforts in helping to broaden the public’s understanding of science.

On Broadway, he has appeared as the physicist Richard Feynman in the play “QED.” He starred in the first American production of the international hit play “ART.” In addition to his nomination for “Glengarry,” he was also nominated for the Tony Award for his performances in Neil Simon's “Jake’s Women” and the musical “The Apple Tree.”

His first memoir Never Have Your Dog Stuffed, and Other Things I’ve Learned became a New York Times bestseller, as did his second: Things I Overheard While Talking to Myself. . . . short bio
