TV favorite Alan Alda revealed this week that he is suffering from Parkinson's Disease. 

Perez Hilton reports:

Such sad news to report — especially about such a sweet, well-loved man in Hollywood.

Alan Alda, best known for his leading portrayal of Hawkeye Pierce on the long-running TV show M*A*S*H — went on CBS This Morning a few hours ago to reveal some big news: he's been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease.

The 82-year-old revealed he was actually diagnosed three years ago, and had been living a normal life since then — until he noticed his thumb twitching in a recent television interview, and at that point, he decided to reveal his health diagnosis before people began to speculate.
