Keith Knight, a Sault Ste. Marie native whose passion for acting saw him work professionally on stage, film and television for nearly 30 years, is dead. He died Wednesday night at his home in Toronto of brain cancer. Knight was 51. The Sault Collegiate Institute graduate appeared in dozens of community theatre productions in the city in the mid- to late-1970s, ending with an award-winning performance at Theatre Ontario, before launching his professional career in 1978... Knight is perhaps best known for his role as Larry Finklestein, a counsellor-in-training in Meatballs, the 1979 Canadian comedy that marked his feature film debut and cast Saturday Night Live alum Bill Murray in his first starring role... His television credits included roles in Queer as Folk, The Littlest Hobo, Road to Avonlea, Seeing Things and Street Legal.
