Wiki

Lawrence "Larry" Kasdan (born January 14, 1949) is an American film producer, director and screenwriter.

Kasdan was born in Miami, Florida. He was raised in Morgantown, West Virginia, where he graduated from Morgantown High School in 1966.

He graduated from the University of Michigan with an MA in Education, originally planning on a career as an English teacher. He was a student of Professor Kenneth Thorpe Rowe. Upon graduation, Kasdan was unable to find a teaching position, so he became an advertising copywriter, a profession he found so loathsome he refused to bring a second child into the world until he escaped it. Still, he labored at it for five years (even picking up a Clio Award along the way), first in Detroit and later in Los Angeles where he tried to interest Hollywood in his screenplays.
