NEW YORK (AP) -- Larry Linville, best known for his portrayal of the power-hungry and neurotic Maj. Frank Burns on the CBS television show ''MASH,'' died Monday at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. He was 60.

Linville suffered from cancer and had a lung removed in 1998 after a malignant tumor was discovered. Longtime manager Barry M. Greenberg of Los Angeles said Linville was hospitalized Sunday and died of complications of pneumonia.

Linville, a native of Ojai, Calif., was part of a breakout cast that made ''MASH'' one of the longest-running shows on television. He starred with Alan Alda, Gary Burghoff and Wayne Rogers as part of an ensemble that launched the show in 1972.
