Larry Drake, RIP

Thetrades tell us:

Emmy-winning actor Larry Drake, who played Benny on “L.A. Law,” died Thursday. ... He was 66.

Drake played the developmentally disabled office assistant Benny Stulwicz on “L.A. Law.,” which was praised for handling Benny’s odyssey in a very progressive fashion. ... In the 2000s, he nabbed a handful of voicework roles for animated TV series and guested on “Six Feet Under,” “Crossing Jordan,” “7th Heaven” and “Boston Legal.” ...

We note Mr. Drake's death here because in point of fact he did somewhat more than a "handful" of voice roles.

In 2008 he was a voice actor in the video game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. At the turn of the century Mr. Drake had roles in multiple episodes of Johnny Bravo, What's New Scooby Doo and Justice League
