Acteur de 72 ans (26 avril 1947)
Ron McLarty is an American actor, playwright and author. He began his career in theatre during the early 1970s with one his earliest professional performances being the role of Lucky in Michael Weller's Moonchildren for the play's American premiere at the Arena Stage in Washington D.C. in November 1971. McLarty continued with the production when it moved to Broadway in 1972.
Although he enjoyed a successful career as an actor, he had not had much luck finding a publisher for his novel The Memory of Running, until Stephen King happened upon an audiobook version, and praised it as "the best book you can't read". This led to the book's publication by Viking Press, and its rapid rise to bestseller status. McLarty is an accomplished narrator - besides Running, he has provided the narrative for a number of audiobooks, including Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and the unabridged audiobook Decision Points by George W. Bush.
A graduate of Rhode Island College, class of 1969, Mr. McLarty was commencement speaker and received a Doctor of Humanities degree from RIC in 2007.
