What is Robert “Rusty” Stevens doing Now?
American sitcom, Leave It to Beaver, chronicled the adventure of an inquisitive and naïve boy, Theodore “The Beaver” Cleaver (Jerry Mathers) of a normal suburban neighborhood. Beaver was accompanied by Wally Cleaver (Tony Dow), Eddie Haskell (Ken Osmond) and Larry Mondello (Robert “Rusty” Stevens).
Where is Larry Mondello Now?
Stevens portrayed the role of Larry Mondello for the three seasons. He appeared in 68 of the show’s 235 episodes. Larry was not the brightest kid in school but, he was often responsible for getting Beaver into trouble.
Stevens was born on November 25, 1948, in Boston. He had appeared in several other shows before appearing on Leave It to Beaver. He left Leave It to Beaver in 1960 because his family had to move to Philadelphia and the show was shot in Burbank.
Barbara Billingsley, who portrayed June Cleaver on the show, said in a TV Archive interview that he was dropped because his mother caused grief for the producers of the series.
He appeared in a few TV shows after moving to Philadelphia. He reprised his role of Larry in 1983 TV movie Still the Beaver and for three episodes of The New Leave It to Beaver. Stevens is married to Theresa Marinelli. The couple share one child.
Back in 2000, the 71-year-old was reported to be working as an insurance salesman in New Jersey.
