I still fondly remember him as the one that everyone chose for their partner on the final question on Match Game. I still get childhood flashbacks everytime I hear that theme song.
I've read that too about his wanting the Hogan role. I also read he was the real ladies man. He dated nearly every woman who was on Hogans Heroes and most of the shows in which he was an actor.
