"I'm afraid I won't know how to act"

To the younger generation who only know Laurence Fishburne as Morpheus of the ultra cool Matrix series, I am going to show you a side of Larry that you may not be prepared for.

Back in the day there was this awesome show called Pee-Wee's Playhouse, starring Pee-Wee Herman (Paul Reubens). Old Larry had a bit part in the cast, playing lovable Cowboy Curtis circa 1987. Here's a clip of Curtis preparing for a date with Pee-Wee standing in as the date - for practise. Watch it in high quality for the full effect.

Thank you to Stephanie for reminding me of this little gem of performance trivia....
