Within the last couple of years, his songs have been included in several independent film projects and he received national airplay for his vocal rendition of “America Stands Tall.” However, his musical talent goes beyond belting out tunes. He plays the piano, guitar and stand-up bass and self-produced his latest album, Where I Stand, with Sam Nickell and Curt Piar, two of his band members. Most recently, Larry’s musical talents took him to Nashville, where he competed for a spot on USA Networks’ show, Nashville Star. Larry was chosen out of 20,000 competitors to go to Nashville and compete with 56 regional finalists vying for one of 10 coveted spots on the show. No stranger to Tennessee, Larry spent the summer of 2004 in Memphis, shooting the critically acclaimed film, Walk The Line, alongside Hollywood stars Joaquin Phoenix and Academy-award winning actress, Reese Witherspoon. Based on the life of Johnny Cash, Walk The Line features Larry in the role of “Marshall Grant” -- Cash’s best friend and stand up bass player. With an acting career that spans more than 20 years, Larry also starred in the award- winning film, Saints and Soldiers, as the card trick playing, cigarette loving southern boy “Shirl Kendrick”.
Aside from winning 21 Best Picture awards from film festivals around the nation, Saints and Soldiers was also nominated for Best First Feature and Best Cinematography in the 2004 IFP Independent Spirit Awards. In conjunction with his many guest appearances on shows such as CSI, JAG, and Malcolm in the Middle, Larry is perhaps most noted for his recurring guest spot on Buffy the Vampire Slayer as football hero “Larry Blaisdell.” As a youth, he also co-starred in the films Hocus Pocus and Airborne, among other films. Larry can be seen in numerous commercials and lends his voice to a cadre of entertainment projects. Between Bagby’s musical ambitions and his filming schedule he doesn’t have much free time left. However, Bagby still enjoys the rush of doing stand up comedy where he is known for his eerily realistic impressions of Chewbacca and Michael J. Fox.
