Lawrence H. "Larry" Toffler (born February 6, 1963) is an actor and American game show host who was 21 years old and working as a tour guide at Universal Studios Hollywood (after a successful stint at the Bennigans in Englewood, NJ) when he was given the job of hosting Finders Keepers. He hosted the syndicated edition for one season before the show moved back to Nickelodeon with reruns of both his version and the Nickelodeon version with Wesley Eure.
Toffler was later a contestant on several game shows, including Greed and Debt. On October 14, 2002 he appeared on Russian Roulette (but was eliminated in Round 2), then appeared on Catch-21 on July 1, 2009 (he busted himself in Round 1, but won the game and $1,000 in the bonus round). Although this made him one of a few game show hosts to have been both a contestant and a host, Toffler's appearances differ from the rest as all of his contestant appearances came after he was a host as opposed to before he became one.
