David Ogden Stiers

March 20th, 2010 by Anne Richardson · No Comments · Oregon actor, Oregon conductor, Oregon voice artist

David Ogden Stiers arrived in Eugene, Oregon from Urbana, Illinois while still a teen ager. He graduated from North Eugene High School and made a stab at attending the University of Oregon before dropping out to begin his  acting career.

Selected examples of Stiers’ versatility:

He pursued Sally “Hot Lips” Kellerman for six years as the pompous Major Charles Emerson Winchester III on the television series MASH. Of the many films in which he has appeared, four were directed by Woody Allen: Shadows and FogMighty AphroditeEveryone Says I Love You, and The Curse of the Jade Scorpion. He narrates Ric Burns’ wonderful  New York: A Documentary Film and plays the role of Cogsworthy in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.

His first voiceover work was for George Lucas’ THX 1138 in 1971. His first screen acting job was in Drive, He Said, directed by Jack Nicolson in Eugene the same year.

In between guest conducting stints (including guest conducting for the Yaquina Symphony Orchestra in Newport), in his spare time Stiers is an A list Hollywood actor and voice actor.
