Larry Cedar is an accomplished film, television, stage and voiceover artist best known for his portrayal of opium addict Leon Stalsworth in the HBO series, Deadwood. Admitted to Hastings Law School after earning his BA in Communication Studies, the course of his life was dramatically altered when he impulsively decided to audition for, and was accepted into, the MFA Theater program at UCLA. There he participated in and won the Hugh O'Brian Acting Competition award for Best Actor and was subsequently signed to an exclusive one-year artist development contract with Universal Studios where he ultimately landed his first television pilot. He went on to star in several Disney movies as well as hundreds of television episodes and feature films, including a starring role opposite Rebecca De Mornay and Mary Gross in the Ivan Reitman-produced Feds, and an unforgettable performance opposite John Lithgow as "The Creature on the Wing" in Steven Spielberg's feature remake, Twilight Zone: The Movie, directed by George Miller. Larry spent six years in New York starring in the award-winning PBS series Square One Television and later starred in 40 episodes of the Fox television series A.J.'s Time Travelers, produced by Gianni Russo (aka Carlo The Godfather). An excellent singer, he has portrayed Hoagy Carmichael in Hoagy, Bix, and Wolfgang Beethoven Bunkhaus at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, starred as Vernon opposite Lea Thompson in They're Playing Our Song, and as Secretary Thompson in 1776: The Musical opposite Roger Rees. Awards include nominations for two Los Angeles Theater Alliance Ovation awards for his performances in Anything Goes (as Lord Oakley) opposite Rachel York and She Loves Me (as Sipos, for which he ultimately won Best Featured Actor in a Musical). Larry excels in the field of voice-overs, and in addition to lending his wide-ranging vocal characterizations to hundreds of commercials, cartoon series, and video games, specializes in the art of legal disclaimers or "speed talking". Demos of his voiceover work can be heard at An avid monologist, Cedar has also adapted and starred in several award-winning one-man stage productions based on the works of his favorite authors, George Orwell (Orwellian), Fyodor Dostoevsky (Notes From the Underground), and Franz Kafka (Letter to My Father, The Burrow, and The Hunger Artist), and will soon present his final Kafka piece, The Trial based on a new translation by British playwright Howard Colyer.
