Growing up in Chicago wasn`t quite from the books for Larry; in numerous interviews he stated that he had seen both sides of Chicago, the good and the bad, which only helped him in his later career, incorporating what he learnt into his acting. He wasn`t quite an honorable student, but found his way with the Ted List Players in his hometown, and was mentored by Golden Globe Award-nominated actor Robert Conrad.

Larry made his debut in 1973, with a brief role in the film “The Girl Most Likely to…”, and continued with small roles in TV series, including Jack Webb`s “Chase” in 1974. His first bigger role came in 1976 when he was selected to portray Lt. Bob Boyle in the TV series “Black Sheep Squadron” (1976-1978), and the following year he appeared next to his mentor Robert Conrad in the film “Sudden Death”, directed by Eddie Romero. Before the end of `70s, Larry also had a role in “Battlestar Galactica” (1978), as Giles. It was in 1980 that his life turned for the better, when he was selected for the role of Rick Wright, next to Tom Selleck in the TV crime action adventure series “Magnum P.I.” (1980-1988), created by Donald P. Bellisario and Glen A. Larson. The role celebrated him as an actor, and increased his net worth by a large margin. While the show lasted, he wasn`t looking for other roles, and remained focused until its end. His next role was in the 1990 film “The Take”, and he continued through the `90s with roles in low budget movies, such as “CIA II: Target Alexa” (1993), “Subliminal Seduction” (1996), “Top of the World” (1997), starring Peter Weller, “Scar City” (1998), with Stephen Baldwin, and “Hijack” (1999), with Jeff Fahey.

Larry is active as actor even today, and with the beginning of `00s, he had several notable roles, including in films “Random Acts” (2001) next to Victoria Foyt, “The Stoneman” (2002), “Cool Money” in 2005 alongside James Marsters and John Cassini, and “Sinatra Club” in 2010.

Also, since 2013 he has appeared in six episode of the TV series “Hawaii Five-0” (2013-2016), as Nicky “The Kid” Demarco”, which has also improved his wealth.

Larry is also recognized as an author; he wrote and published the semi-autobiography, “Aloha Magnum” in 1999, which depicts time spent while shooting the popular series. Sales of the book also contributed to his net worth.

To speak further of his accomplishments away from acting, Larry also owned a restaurant at the Plaza Hotel & Casino.

Regarding his personal life, Larry has been married to Nancy DeCarl since 1980; the couple has one child together, Lorenzo Manetti, a writer and director.
