Early life[edit] Fishburne was born in Augusta, Georgia, the son of Hattie Bell (née Crawford), a junior high school mathematics and science teacher, and Laurence John Fishburne, Jr., a juvenile corrections officer.[3] After his parents divorced during his childhood, he moved with his mother to Brooklyn, New York, where he was raised. Fishburne's father saw him once a month.[4][5] Fishburne is a graduate of Lincoln Square Academy in New York, which closed in the 1980s.[6] Career[edit] 1973–1989[edit] For most of his early career, he was credited as Larry Fishburne. In 1973, Fishburne had his first acting role portraying Joshua Hall on the ABC soap opera One Life to Live.[7] His most memorable childhood role was in Cornbread, Earl and Me,[8] in which he played a young boy who witnessed the police shooting of a popular high school basketball star. He later earned a supporting role in Apocalypse Now, in which he played Tyrone Miller, a cocky 17-year-old Gunner's Mate 3rd Class from the Bronx, nicknamed Mr. Clean. When production began in March 1976, he was just 14 years old, having lied about his age to get the part. Filming took so long that he actually was 17 years old upon its completion.[7][9] Fishburne spent much of the 1980s in and out of television and periodically on stage. In the early 1980s, he worked as a bouncer at punk rock clubs.[10] He appeared in the early 1980s movies Band of the Hand, Death Wish 2
