The acting bug bit Larry when he was in school running for class office and playing sports. To him it was all a performance. The first actual stage experience he had was in a high school play, “Oklahoma.” His role was the Sheriff, and the director needed someone to do a cowboy dance. The always-ready Larry volunteered.
Years passed before he started acting again. It was after serving in the US Army as an Artillery Officer and company commander, then as a member of the New York Stock Exchange (becoming a managing partner of one of the most prestigious specialist firms on the floor), and then traveling the country while playing Senior Professional Golf, that he continued his life long passion of acting. When those real life roles were completed he moved to Chicago, to be with his two children. “It was the perfect opportunity to seriously pursue my acting career,” the General Hospital actor says.
Larry feels fortunate to have studied with some top people in the business. Their encouragement led him to Los Angeles and since then he has not looked back. Now he has a reoccurring role as Mr. Novak on “General Hospital” and was in an Emmy nominated episode of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” Most recently, Larry was seen on the ABC TV primetime mini-series “When We Rise” as Supreme Court Justice Scalia.” Larry believes that actors are “shamans” – the storytellers, and there is no greater satisfaction than to develop a character, tell his story and impact the audience.
When Larry isn’t on set he travels, trades stocks, golfs in charitable events and loves to barbeque. In the future he will continue to use his expert golfing skills to help raise money for charities.
