Lorenzo Music spent most of his career behind the scenes. In fact, even his two most famous acting roles didn't involve showing his face on screen. After several years as a Nichols and May-style comedy duo with his wife Henrietta Music, the Minnesota native began writing for television, contributing to his shows like "The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour" and "Mary Tyler Moore." In 1972, Music co-created the classic "The Bob Newhart Show"; two years later, he was on the writing staff of the Mary Tyler Moore spinoff "Rhoda" when he was picked to voice the character of Carlton, Rhoda's perpetually stoned doorman. Though Carlton was never seen on-screen, he quickly became many fans' favorite character on the show. In 1982, Music was pegged for another voiceover role when he was chosen to provide the voice of popular cartoon cat Garfield for the lazy feline's first TV special. Lorenzo Music continued to provide Garfield's voice until his 2001 death from lung cancer.
