• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

"What is real? How do you define real? If you're talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then real is simply, electrical signals interpreted by your brain."
Morpheus, The Matrix


Pee-wee: What do you sleep in, Cowboy Curtis?

Cowboy Curtis: [shrugs] Nothing! I sleep in the nude!
~Pee-Wee's Playhouse~

Not to be confused with Samuel L. Jackson, Larry Fishburne is a quiet man. Maybe too quiet. Sometimes to the point of being almost inaudible.

One of his early roles was Cowboy Curtis on Pee-wee's Playhouse, as well as having a role in Apocalypse Now, where he started at age 14 playing an 18 year old soldier and ended filming as an 18 year old.

He is perhaps best known for his role as Morpheus in the Matrix trilogy, (which makes his previous role on Pee Wee Hilarious in Hindsight) and for his portrayal of singer-musician Ike Turner in the Tina Turner biopic What's Love Got to Do with It?. Pity that women gave him the evil eye for years because of the last one.

His noteworthy voice landed him the role of narrator in the 2007 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, as well as the voice of the Silver Surfer in the second Fantastic Four movie.

Has been cast as criminologist Dr. Raymond Langston on CSI, and has landed the role of Perry White in the 2013 Superman movie.

Currently married to Gina Torres, famed for her roles in Firefly and Justice League Unlimited. His daughter Montana is a porn star.

Has a minor claim to fame in being the first black man to play the title character in a film adaptation of Othello.
