'New York Stories' and 'Radio Days' (1987-1989)
Before he became a standup comedian, Larry David had his sights set on becoming an actor. It’s no surprise, then, that even after he’d begun making his name in television, David’s desire to act in movies didn’t vanish entirely. During the early 1980s, he landed bit parts in odd films with titles like Can She Bake a Cherry Pie? His greatest achievement in this endeavor, though, was the opportunity to cameo in a pair of movies from his spiritual predecessor in neurotic Jewish humor, Woody Allen. In this scene from Allen’s New York Stories, the two briefly share screentime together, which in retrospect is like seeing Socrates square off against a young Plato.
