Larry Owens is one of the pre-made NPC Film and Literature Hobby instructors who comes from Hobbies, the secret sub-neighborhood introduced with The Sims 2: FreeTime. The other two film and literature hobby instructors are Cooper Seifert and Madeleine Mace. He appears in every neighborhood once FreeTime has been installed. Larry can be made playable by befriending and asking him to move in, or by marrying him.
He has long red hair in cornrows, light blue eyes, and tanned skin. Larry is a Romance Sim with the Libra zodiac sign. As far as personality, he is very outgoing, quite nice, and somewhat playful. But Larry is very sloppy and lazy. He is mostly interested in Environment, Food, Money, and Entertainment. Larry has the same facial structure as Ricky Cormier. His pre-destined hobby is Cuisine.
Even though his default head-shot depicts him having cornrows, and a black unbuttoned shirt, when Larry is first spawned in-game, he will have the short slicked hairstyle that Mortimer Goth has. His outfit will also change to the same Mr. Big outfit that Mr. Big wears. However Larry will still retain the hairstyle in his default thumbnail, for most outfits besides everyday. Even though he is a film and literature hobby instructor, he has no enthusiasm in that hobby.
