Larry Thomas is an actor most recognized for his Emmy nominated performance as "The Soup Nazi" from Seinfeld. Larry has been an actor for thirty-five years and is a veteran of dozens of Films, TV shows and hundreds of theatre performances. Recently Larry finished shooting the film, 108 Stitches a baseball film with Bruce Davison, The Tesla Effect, A Tex Murphy Adventure (a live action video game) and was seen on Arrested Development, Hot Properties, Threshold, Scrubs and a Lexus commercial as a crazed pre-Bugsy visionary selling the idea of Vegas. In 1997, he made a cameo appearance as the blackjack dealer in "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery", sharing the scene with Mike Myers and Robert Wagner. As far as theater goes, 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. Also most recently the author of "Confessions of a Soup Nazi; an Adventure in Acting and Cooking." Born in Brooklyn, NY Larry has been many things including bailbondsman, bartender and brain surgeon (well not really brain surgeon but it rounded out the three b's. Actually you can add janitor to that list, just as important in some circles, let's face it). A father and mortgage payer, Larry is grateful for his family and career. 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. Let's also not forget the constant daydreaming of being up there on stage with The Beatles and other favorite rock bands (it had to be daydreaming because of the insomnia). Not having any entertainment types in the family Larry kept these fantasies to himself until at the age of twenty-one, while majoring in journalism in jr. college, Larry met a girl (a tower of jello when it came to women). Finding himself striking out he asked her what classes she was taking. The answer was theater classes. Enrolling in a bunch of theater classes in a pitiful attempt to get a date Larry fell in love with acting and the rest as they say is....
