LOS ANGELES -- Robert Clary of "Hogan's Heroes" fame says he'll be celebrating his 88th birthday this weekend at a dinner out with friends.
Mr. Clary said he considers each new day a birthday.
TV viewers still recognize him as Cpl. Louis LeBeau from the 1965-71 sitcom set in a World War II prisoner-of-war camp.
He has been off the screen for more than a decade, staying busy with his family, his painting and regular gym workouts.
Mr. Clary said he's also a voting member of the motion picture academy, with Meryl Streep and Leonardo DiCaprio his top picks for Sunday's Oscars.
Mr. Clary turns 88 today. As a teenager, the French-born actor survived the Nazi Holocaust that claimed 12 of his family members.
