When Rogers was studying acting he shared an apartment with Peter Falk, of Columbo fame.
After three years of playing Trapper John in M*A*S*H, Rogers left and was replaced by Mike Farrel playing B.J. Hunnicutt. Roger's reason for leaving was that his contract had an 'old fashioned morals clause'. However, this term wasn't fully defined and Rogers wasn't happy with his career being at the whim of whoever was running the studio.
Even after his death, a paternity suit filed by an actress who claims Rogers is the father of her son, Luigi Calabrese, continues.
