Harry Morgan, who played Colonel Sherman T. Potter on 'M*A*S*H,' died on Wednesday at the age of 96. 'Early' (weekdays, 7AM ET on CBS) remembered the actor with a look back at his career, which included another iconic TV role, detective Bill Gannon on 'Dragnet.'

"To be able to be on a hit show, 'Dragnet' and to come back and be on another hit show is something that not very many actors get to do in their careers," Matt Belloni of the 'Hollywood Reporter' observed in a discussion.

Before working alongside Jack Webb and Alan Alda on the small screen, Morgan appeared on the big screen with greats like Gary Cooper in 'High Noon' and John Wayne in 'The Shootist.' "The hallmark of a great character actor," Belloni said, "is you never really realize that they're in the movie until you see them and you're like 'Oh, I know that guy!'"
