LARRY MANETTI – ACTOR, AUTHOR AND RADIO HOST - SHARES SOME OF HIS BEST RECIPES
Luck was on his side. Jack Webb was casting a new series for NBC called The Chase. Larry played a young detective. After attending acting school at Sal Dano's at night and doing bit parts by day, he scored. Baa Baa Black Sheep was being produced and cast at Universal, and the now famous writer Stephen J. Cannell was the executive producer and the role was a natural for Larry. He was cast as a cocky, hot shot pilot named Bobby Boyle. The show was a big hit for NBC but was cancelled within two years. Because the network was so impressed with Larry's on-screen presence, they cast him in a new series called The Duke. Bad luck! The Duke was cancelled in one year. Larry was back to playing whatever Universal told him to.
Hoping to catch lighting in a jar, along came Magnum, P.I. and the role of Rick. This was his elevator...the show became a mega-hit for 8 years. Since Magnum, P.I., Larry has done co-starring roles in 25 feature films and guest starred on many hot TV shows. Larry is the author of a book titled Aloha Magnum. As for the future ... just follow his jet stream!
LARRY'S BOOK "ALOHA MAGNUM" IS BACK IN LIMITED PRINT AND IS AVAILABLE FOR SALE.
In Aloha Magnum, the first-ever book about Magnum, P.I., I tell all!
I cover the hit series, my wild childhood, my crazy days in Hollywood on series like Battlestar Galatica and Baa Baa Black Sheep, my moonlighting as a prominent restaurateur, my escapades with the rich, famous and especially the outrageous.
I reveal what really went on behind the scenes during Magnum, P.I.'s successful eight-year run - including my friendship with sex-symbol Tom Selleck and co-stars Roger E. Mosely and John Hillerman. I recount my sometimes rowdy, but always amusing encounters with Hollywood's elite, including how I worked with Frank Sinatra, annoyed Elvis Presley and helped launch Michelle Pfeiffer's career.
