Who is Larry Hemsworth? (+Details about the Hemsworth Brothers)

In this brief guide, we will look at who Larry Hemsworth is, as well as some other details about the Hemsworth brothers and their family.

Who is Larry Hemsworth?

Larry Hemsworth is not actually a real person, he is a fictional character on the show The Good Place, where he plays the underdog “fourth” Hemsworth brother.

Larry Hemsworth is played by the actor Ben Lawson, and he is portrayed as a very insecure guy who is forever in the shadow of his 3 more successful brothers and even though he has a great career of his own, he tends to always be concerned with doing or being better.

Worse still, he is dating Tahani Al-Jamil, who is a socialite and philanthropist who does all sorts of great things with her life and has such an amazing life that she literally has the Queen’s number saved on her phone along with other influential people.

Larry Hemsworth is always shown trying to be better and feel better, and he is often shown trying to somehow gain the kind of respect that his brothers have.

Larry Hemsworth is a Pediatric surgeon, and he is incredibly fit and handsome, but despite his many amazing attributes and his amazing face and body, he is still suffering from insecurity, and this aspect of him is supposed to show his humanity and drive home the fact that it really doesn’t matter who someone is, they will still have feelings.

The Good Place is a great show which touches upon the deepest things in the most hilarious way possible, and there are many more easter eggs and little details on the show which are incredible, and Larry Hemsworth is just one of them.

There are also some people that say that the character of Larry Hemsworth is supposed to be sort of loosely based on the third Hemsworth brother, Luke Hemsworth, who is admittedly not as successful as the other two Hemsworth brothers, Chris and Liam.

Larry Hemsworth Character

Larry Hemsworth’s character in The Good Place is meant to be a sort of a story related tool that is supposed to move Tahani’s story along, and his traits are meant to show that even rich and famous and very successful people can be extremely successful.

The story of Larry Hemsworth is Tahani is that they knew each other before and then they break up, which is shown in a magazine that Eleanor is reading, however, later, when Tahani is in Australia learning philosophy from Chidi, they run into each other again and they get engaged a year later.

It is seen how insecure Larry Hemsworth is when he finally meets the 3 other protagonists apart from Tahani and his first statement is “I’m sorry it took so long for me to gather the courage to meet you all”.

When Jason asks him about Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth, he breaks down and runs away exclaiming “Great, another question about my famous brothers. I can’t be the center of attention even on the most important day of my life”, to which Tahani says “No Larry it’s okay fixing children’s spines is just as important as acting!”.

Larry Hemsworth is a very talented pediatric surgeon who “fixes babies’ spines” according to Tahani, and he is also incredibly handsome but he does not really place much importance on himself.

When the gang first meets Larry Hemsworth, Eleanor notes that he has a “perfect jawline” and 0 percent body fat, and she and the others are incredibly shocked to see how insecure he is, and Chidi even comments on hearing what Larry says about himself that “You…know what you look like, right?

Larry Hemsworth is also very rich, which is evident in the fact that they have their engagement party happen in a place that Tahani apparently found on “HeirBnB”.

Larry Hemsworth also comes from a famous family and is in great physical shape, which is seen in the time he mentions having “eight-pack” abdominal muscles, but even with all of this going on for him, Larry Hemsworth tends to fumble his words when he gets nervous, and he describes his face as looking similar to a very dull rock. 

He also gets agitated and irritated whenever someone mentions his brothers Chris, Liam, or Luke, which is seen in how he reacts to Jason’s question.

Larry’s insecurity is showcased in absurd fashion when he refers to himself as the “hideous shame” of the Hemsworth family, despite his aforementioned good looks, intelligence, and professional success, which is there for comic relief, but it also goes to show how nothing matters when someone does not feel good about themselves.

Chris Hemsworth

Chris Hemsworth is an actor in Hollywood who is best known for his role of Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and he is one of the three Hemsworth brothers, while the other two are Liam and Luke.

Chris Hemsworth is the oldest Hemsworth brother, and he is married to a Spanish model, Elsa Pataky, and they have three children, namely India Rose Hemsworth, Sasha Hemsworth and Tristan Hemsworth.

Chris Hemsworth was born in Melbourne, Australia, to Leonie (van Os), who is an English teacher, and Craig Hemsworth, who is a social-services counselor. Chris Hemsworth has Dutch ancestry from his immigrant maternal grandfather, as well as some Irish, English, Scottish, and German ancestry. 

Also, the movie Crocodile Dundee (1986) was inspired by his uncle Rod Ansell (by marriage) , who was a bushman that the film was based on.

According to IMDB, “Chris saw quite a bit of the country in his youth, after his family moved to the Northern Territory before finally settling on Phillip Island, to the south of Melbourne. In 2004, he unsuccessfully auditioned for the role of Robbie Hunter in the Australian soap opera Home and Away (1988) but was recalled for the role of Kim Hyde which he played until 2007. In 2006, he entered the Australian version of Dancing with the Stars (2004) and his popularity in the soap enabled him to hang on until show 7 (Dancing with the Stars: Episode #5.7 (2006) when he became the fifth contestant to be eliminated.”

Chris made his first Hollywood appearance in Star Trek (2009), but it was his role in Thor (2011) was the thing that brought him the success he is known for today, and the role of the Asgardian prince is what has helped him get better and better roles and cemented his place in Hollywood.

The role of Thor was reprised in the science fiction blockbuster The Avengers (2012), and Chris Hemsworth has come a very long way since the original Thor movie.

Chris’s American representative, management company ROAR, also manages actress Elsa Pataky, and the two met through the same company, and they married in 2010.

Liam Hemsworth

Liam Hemsworth is one of the Hemsworth brothers, and he is best known for his roles in The Last Song and The Hunger Games and his on again and off again relationship with the popstar Miley Cyrus.

Liam Hemsworth is the youngest Hemsworth brother, and even though he has been named one of the sexiest men over his brother Chris Hemsworth, his success in the movies has not been as amazing as Chris’s.

Liam Hemsworth was born on 13 January 1990 and he has also played the roles of Josh Taylor in the soap opera Neighbours and Marcus in the children’s television series The Elephant Princess. 

In Hollywood, Liam Hemsworth starred as Will Blakelee in The Last Song (2010), as Gale Hawthorne in The Hunger Games film series (2012–2015), and as Jake Morrison in Independence Day: Resurgence (2016), and he has been well received in all of these roles.

One aspect of his life that Liam Hemsworth is always in the news for is his relationship with his ex-wife Miley Cyrus, who he started dating around 2009.

A fun fact about Liam Hemsworth is that he was actually also considered for the role of Thor in the first Thor movie, but he eventually ended up losing that role to Chris, his older brother.

In his personal life Liam Hemsworth is the ambassador of the Australian Childhood Foundation. And in talking about his association with the foundation, he says “I have the best parents you can have. They have worked in child protection for twenty years and have only ever given me encouragement and support. The world is a scary enough place as it is for children. It is important that home should always be a safe place for them.”

His relationship with Miley Cyrus was very serious by 2012, when they first announced their engagement, which they then called off after a few years, but then they ended up getting engaged again by 2018 and got married later that year.

However, it was not meant to last, alas, because they announced their separation in 2019, and by January 2020 their divorce was finalized citing “irreconcilable differences”.

Luke Hemsworth

Luke Hemsworth is the middle child among the three Hemsworth brothers and while he is not as well known as the other two Hemsworth’s, he has had some great roles, like the role of Ashley Stubbs in the show WestWorld.

Luke Hemsworth also played the role of Chris Hemsworth as Thor in the movie Thor Ragnarok for one or two scenes where Loki is having a play on Asgard while imitating Odin.

He has also played the role of Nathan Tyson on the show Neighbours, and his other works include The Saddle Club, Blue Heelers, Last Man Standing, All Saints, and Satisfaction. In 2012, he starred in the 6-part mini series Bikie Wars: Brothers in Arms as Gregory “Shadow” Campbell.
