~ Dimmick to Eddie Cabot

Lawrence Dimmick, or also better known as Mr. White, is the protagonist villain of the 1992 crime film Reservoir Dogs.

He was portrayed by Harvey Keitel, who also played Sport in Taxi Driver, and Victor the Cleaner in Point of No Return.

Biography

Mr. White from Milwaukee, Wisconsin is one of six other men hired to carry out a jewelry heist by Joe Cabot. In a deleted scene when Mr. Orange is investigating Larry's background it reveals that Larry is born June 19, 1958 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (making him 34 years old in Reservoir Dogs). He has a history of juvenile problems stemming from a background of physical and mental abuse from his alcoholic parents. His parents divorced when he was three and his mother died when he was eight years old. He goes by the aliases: Lawrence Jacobs, Alvin "Al" Jacobs, Larry, Micky, Larry "Two Guns" Dimmick. He has served most of his prison time in the Wisconsin prison system. In April 28, 1974 he was arrested for drinking in public and fined $25, then on March 6, 1976 for driving a vehicle without registration, the November 30, 1976 for littering, and on June 19, 1979 for driving with an expired driver's license. He was first convicted of armed robbery at 21 years old, robbing the pay roll office of a lumber yard and was sentenced to eighteen months. He wasn't arrested again until he was 32 in a routine vice squad roust in Los Angeles and served prison from 1983 to 1985. He's lived in Los Angeles since 1977.  He is single but mentions a female bank robber to Joe Cabot, Alabama "Bama" who he performed heists with but later broke off with her two or three years ago because of the man-woman tensions that arose when committing crimes, mentioning that she later hooked up with another robber, Frank Migar. He is a sports bettor on NFL football and a big fan of the Milwaukee Brewers. 


Chronologically, Mr. White is seen alongside Joe and Joe's son Eddie Cabot during the recruitment of Mr. Orange (who was, unknown to them, an undercover cop).

When the heist went wrong and the police showed up, Mr. White managed to escape with Mr. Orange and Mr. Brown. However, Mr. Brown was shot in the head during the escape and crashed the car. Mr. White shot out two cops in a police car and stopped a passing car, causing the female driver to shoot Mr. Orange in the stomach, which leads to Mr. Orange shooting her (much to his guilt). Mr. White drives Mr. Orange to a warehouse which acts as the hideout. Mr. Pink arrives and the two get into a fight when it becomes clear someone set them up. Mr. Blonde later arrives and it gets heated between the two men as Mr. White views Mr. Blonde as a stone cold psycho. When Mr. Blonde reveals he has kidnapped a cop, Mr. White shows amusement and along with Blonde and Pink beat the man up for information.

Eddie arrives at the warehouse and states he needs the getaway cars outside removed to avoid suspicion. Although Mr. White objects to Mr. Blonde staying behind to watch the cop and Mr. Orange due to his psychotic nature, he eventually agrees to accompany Eddie and Pink to disposing of the cars.

Arriving back at the warehouse later, they find Mr. Blonde dead. Mr. Orange told them about Blonde torturing the cop and that he was intending to kill the rest of them and make off with the diamonds. Although Mr. White believes him, Eddie isn't convinced due to his family's long-time friendship with Mr. Blonde. This causes a conflict, and Joe arrives at the warehouse revealing that Mr. Orange is a cop. Mr. White doesn't believe them, and a stand-off ensues. Joe points his gun at Mr. Orange, Mr. White points his gun at Joe and Eddie points his gun at White. A shootout occurs and Mr. Pink goes for cover. Joe shoots Mr. Orange, Mr. White shoots Joe who in return gets shot by Eddie, and Mr. White quickly gets a shot at Eddie. With Joe and Eddie dead and Mr. White and Mr. Orange critically injured, Mr. Pink grabs the diamonds and makes off. 

As police sirens can be heard, Mr. White crawls towards Mr. Orange and cradles his head in his arms. Mr. Orange confesses he is a cop, much to the distress of Mr. White. As police are heard entering the warehouse, Mr. White places a gun to Mr. Orange's head. Told to drop his weapon, an emotional Mr. White pulls the trigger and is then gunned down by police.

In Other Media

Mr. White appears as a playable character in the 2006 video game adaptation of the same name. He shares no likeness to his live-action counterpart, and Harvey Keitel does not reprise the role. His "signature move" (used to make all police in his proximity to surrender) is by cutting off a hostage's finger, a nod to the movie in which Larry gives advice to "Mr. Orange" that to make someone cooperate he should cut off one of their fingers.

Missions depicting Mr. White as a playable character have him escaping the authorities, driving Mr. Orange to the warehouse before he bleeds to death and disposing of the getaway car.

Trivia

  • Harvey Keitel assisted Quentin Tarantino in making the film happen and co-produced it and managed to help the filmmakers raise $1.5 million for it to be made.
