Nerd

Larry B. Scott (born August 17, 1961) is an American actor whose film debut was in the 1978 movie A Hero Ain't Nothin' But a Sandwich. He played Gerald LeFlore in the 1978 movie One in a Million: The Ron LeFlore Story. He is best known for playing Lamar Latrelle, the openly gay fraternity member in the Revenge of the Nerds series of comedy films from 1984 to 1994.

You remember Lamar from Revenge of the Nerds yeah? The effeminate, gay fraternity brother that was always down for his brothers and never backed away from them in their time of need? Well you might be surprised to know that Larry B. Scott, the man that made this character come to life, is not and has never been gay, despite what people thought about him after playing the character. It’s true, Lamar was just another role, and one that he performed so convincingly that it led people from the LGBTQ+ community, or gay community back in the day, to think of him as someone that was highly inspirational, while black folks tended to think that he was selling out at times. In truth he had nothing but respect for anyone and everyone that enjoyed the movie, and didn’t see this role as anything more than another challenge, a chance to do what he cared about and get in front of the screen.

Black

In the 1986 film SpaceCamp he played opposite a then-young Joaquin Phoenix as the character Rudy Tyler. In Fear of a Black Hat, he played Tasty-Taste, a pastiche of rappers Flavor Flav and Eazy-E. Scott also makes an appearance in The Karate Kid and is one of the first competitors to lose to Daniel LaRusso in the film's finale. He also appeared in the movie Iron Eagle. He then co-starred in Extreme Prejudice directed by Walter Hill. He played a role in the S.E. Hinton adaptation That Was Then... This Is Now, alongside Emilio Estevez.

Since that time Larry has continued to act and at this time and as of now runs the acting studio W.I.T., which stands for Whatever It Takes. To think that he’s come so far throughout the years isn’t hard to understand, but to think that he’s such a good actor and hasn’t nabbed any other influential roles is kind of difficult to think about. The idea that he couldn’t find any other acting roles or wasn’t given anything other than bit parts and spots in movies that were barely noticed is kind of hard to stomach since he’s one of those actors that a lot of us remember from our younger years as being someone that helped to shape our cinematic experience. But it would seem that he’s pretty happy with what he’s been doing as he’s been helping out young and future actors as they’ve made their way forward, even going so far as to have something to do with Empire, the popular drama starring Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson. It would seem that he’s content and has been doing his best to make sure that other actors have their time in the sun just as he did at one time. (Source: tvovermind.com)

Hero

Scott gave at least one indisputably great performance. As a teenage heroin addict in the 1978 drama A HERO AIN’T NOTHIN’ BUT A SANDWICH, Scott, at age fourteen, more than held his own alongside heavyweights like Paul Winfield and Cicely Tyson. I didn’t become aware of that film until long after the eighties were done, but I’m glad I finally got around to seeing it, as Scott’s work therein

If I had to pick a great runner-up Scott performance it would be as Lamar in REVENGE OF THE NERDS (1984). That film doesn’t get much respect these days, given that it’s quite overtly sexist and its hero (Robert Carradine) commits an act that even back in ‘84 could have gotten him prosecuted for date rape, but REVENGE OF THE NERDS is quite accurate to its period (what Carradine does wouldn’t have been considered out of place in most parties held in my So Cal home town), and, in certain aspects, daring.
