Larry Mann, Voice in ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,’ Dies at 91

Larry D. Mann, who voiced Yukon Cornelius in the animated Christmas favorite “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” died of age-related causes on Monday in Los Angeles. He was 91.

Beginning in the 1950s, the Canadian-born Mann had small roles in movies, including “The Sting” and “In the Heat of the Night.”

On TV, the actor appeared on series including “Gunsmoke,” ”Bewitched,” “Hill Street Blues” and “MacGyver.”

Mann also did voice work for animated shows, including 1964’s “Rudolph.”

Mann’s last role before retirement was playing a talent agent in the 1991 TV show “Homefront.”

Larry D. Mann was a disc jockey in Toronto before becoming an actor, and he later appeared in a series of high-profile commercials for Bell Canada. His brother was the late actor Paul Mann, who appeared in Elia Kazan’s “America and America” and in the film version of “Fiddler on the Roof.”

Survivors include a son, Richard.
