Timothy Brown Roll In “M*A*S*H” Film
Brown’s acting career began while he was still a football player, appearing on an episode of the TV series “The Wild Wild West” in 1967.
He later won roles in the Robert Altman-directed films “M*A*S*H” (1970) and “Nashville” (1975), as well as several so-called “Blaxploitation” films, including “Sweet Sugar” and “Black Gunn” (both 1972), and “Dynamite Brothers” (1974).
In the film version of “M*A*S*H,” Brown played Corporal Judson. In the TV series he played Capt. Oliver Jones, a character who had been played in the movie by another former NFL player, Fred Williamson.
The Jones character was written out of the show after the first season, but Brown was one of only four actors to appear in both versions of “M*A*S*H,” joining Gary Burghoff (“Radar”), G. Wood (“Gen. Hammond”) and Corey Fischer (“Capt. Bandini”).
Brown also made appearances on TV series such as “Adam-12” and “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.”
