Celebrity Larry Miller Recovers from Life-Threatening Brain Injury "He's lucky to be alive," his rep tells PEOPLE of the veteran character who was injured in a fall By J.D. Heyman Published on January 8, 2013 08:00 AM Share Tweet Pin Email Photo: Flynet Larry Miller – a familiar face from his appearances on Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld, The Nutty Professor and several Garry Marshall-directed movies (Princess Diaries, Runaway Bride, Valentine’s Day, New Year’s Eve) – has recovered from a life-threatening brain injury. The actor, 58, fell and hit his head last April. He had just finished a podcast with comedian Adam Carolla when he lost his footing and hit the back of his head on a sidewalk. His spokesman now reveals that Miller, a married father of two, had gone into a coma and was then put on life support at UCLA Medical Center for one month. “He was hovering between life and death,” says his spokesman, Michael Hansen. “It’s a miracle he woke up. … He’s lucky to be alive.” After Miller regained consciousness, he began a long recovery process to re-master basic cognitive functions. “He had to work on some issues regarding brain connectivity,” says Hansen. Now expected to make a full recovery, Miller is back at work on his podcast series, This Week with Larry Miller, which resumes Jan. 9. “I’m very thankful to have recovered from a traumatic brain injury so quickly,” Miller tells PEOPLE.
