Personal Quote:

The only reason I'm ever in character as 'Larry The Cable Guy' is because that's what I'm hired to do. In my movies, obviously they hired 'Larry The Cable Guy' to be 'Larry The Cable Guy.' When I do my shows, I'm 'Larry The Cable Guy.' When I do Jay Leno, it's: 'Please welcome 'Larry The Cable Guy.'' See more »

Trivia:

Is expecting first child with wife Cara Whitney, due August 2006. If it's a girl, they plan on naming the baby Reagan (he says because Ronald Reagan was the greatest president, ever), or Colton if it's a boy, because he says it's a good cowboy name and he likes cowboys. See more »
