Larry Drake, who took home two Emmys for his groundbreaking work in the popular NBC series “L.A. Law,” has died. He was 66.
Drake was reportedly found in his Los Angeles home by a friend Thursday. No cause of death was provided.
Drake played Benny Stulwicz, a mentally disabled office clerk, who seemed to be the only sane voice on a floor full of egos in the drama series that ran between 1986 and 1994.
Although he would go primarily into voice acting once “L.A. Law” went off the air, Drake would make a number of guest appearances in shows, including “Firefly” on Fox, “Stargate SG-1” on what was then the SciFi Channel, and in a 2000 episode of “Star Trek: Voyager” called “Critical Care.”
