Larry Thomas is an actor most recognized for his Emmy nominated performance as "The Soup Nazi" from Seinfeld. Larry has been an actor for twenty-five years and is a veteran of dozens of Films, TV shows and hundreds of theatre performances. Some of his credits include the film, Postal, Arrested Development, Hot Properties, Threshold, Scrubs and a Lexus commercial as a crazed pre-Bugsy visionary selling the idea of Vegas. As far as theatre goes, last year Larry completed a thirty-five city, one hundred and forty show production of Neil Simon's The Odd Couple-Female Version starring Barbara Eden, and rumor has it that it's not over yet. Larry grew up dreaming of being on the big or small screen. As an Olympic gold medalist in the insomnia-athalon Larry watched a lot of all night TV. Major comedy influences were W.C. Fields, The Three Stooges and Laurel and Hardy. Also getting lost in those great golden era of Hollywood films wishing he could be Clark Gable, Cary Grant, Spencer Tracy, Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra all rolled in to one. The answer was theatre classes. Enrolling in a bunch of theatre classes in a pitiful attempt to get a date Larry fell in love with acting and the rest as they say is....well for the first year the teachers told him he had no talent and he should go back to the journalism department. But, being incredibly stubborn and somewhat inspired by a nineteen year old kid in his acting class named Kevin Spacey Larry stuck with it. Within another year they admitted there was some talent there and now they have his picture hanging in the theatre lobby.
