    The actor played mentally challenged office assistant Benny in the series and won a couple of Emmys for it.

    I didn't catch on to the series right away, but the episode I happened to watch that got me hooked was the one where Benny was wrongly charged for the rape of a woman before Becker and Kuzak were able to prove his innocence. There was also another good storyline where he had a romance with a mentally challenged woman played by Amanda Plummer.

    He also played the villain in "Darkman," and other various roles.

    Emmy-winning 'L.A. Law' actor Larry Drake dies at 66

    If I remember correctly, he was also one of the thug characters at the beach in The Karate Kid in the scene where Mr. Miyagi karate chops the beer bottle.

    Very funny scene when Jimmy Smits took him to buy condoms for the first time.

    Man that's impressive recall. Never would have thought it was him, since he was well into his 30s by that point.
