R.I.P. Larry Drake at Age 66

Larry Drake - Darkman

Larry Drake has passed away at the age of 66 due to complications of recent medical issues.

Larry Drake was an exceptional talent and one that I got to see early on in his role of Bubba Ritter on the made-for-television movie Dark Night of the Scarecrow, which is actually one of my favorite horror movies of all time because of the mark it left on a younger version of me in 1981. Drake was also in Sam Raimi’s Darkman and its sequel. Another guilty pleasure of mine was Dr. Giggles in which he played another solid role. Of course, he also had a huge part in L.A. Law.
