Biography

Jamie Farr is an American television, film, and theater actor. He is best known for playing the role of cross-dressing Corporal (later Sergeant) Maxwell Q. Klinger in the television sitcom M*A*S*H.

Farr was born Jameel Joseph Farah in Toledo, Ohio, to Lebanese American parents Jamelia M. (née Abodeely), a seamstress, and Samuel N. Farah, a grocer.   He was raised in the Antiochian Orthodox religion. Farr's first acting success occurred at age 11 when he won $2 in a local acting contest. After Woodward High School, where he was one of the standouts among his class, Farr attended the Pasadena Playhouse where an MGM talent scout discovered him, offering him a screen-test for Blackboard Jungle.  He won the role of the mentally challenged student, Santini.

Personal Life

Farr's autobiography is titled Just Farr Fun.

After his role in the 1955 film, Blackboard Jungle , he entered the United States Army for two years serving overseas in Japan and Korea. His tour of Korea was after the hostilities ended. In his M*A*S*H  role as Max Klinger he can be seen wearing his actual issued set of U.S. Army dog tags.

The park where Farr used to hang out when he was younger was renamed "Jamie Farr Park" in his honor on July 5, 1998. About the park, he said, "I wanted to be an actor, a famous actor, and I wanted my hometown of Toledo, Ohio, to be proud of me." Farr told about 400 admirers and was quoted in The New York Post: "Jamie Farr Park is certainly a highlight of my life and career."

Further exemplifying Farr's love of Toledo was his frequent mention of Tony Packo's hot dogs on M*A*S*H, a Toledo staple. He also was shown in two episodes as a Toledo Mud Hens fan.

Since 2000 Farr has frequently donated to the Republican National Committee. Farr is married to Joy and has two children, Jonas and Yvonne. He is also the grandfather of Dorian. Since the early 1990s, Farr has battled severe rheumatoid arthritis in his hands.
