Larry Keating (June 13, 1899 – August 26, 1963) was an American actor born in St. Paul, Minnesota. He is known for his role of next-door neighbor Roger Addison on the television series Mister Ed, which he played from 1961 until his death in 1963. He was one of several actors to play neighbor Harry Morton* on The Burns and Allen Show (and its short-lived sequel, The George Burns Show). He was an announcer for NBC in the 1940s, an announcer for ABC radio's This Is Your FBI from 1945 to 1953, and a regular on the short-lived series The Hank McCune Show. (* Keating took over the role from Fred Clark.)

Keating's film credits include The Mating Season (1951) with Gene Tierney, Thelma Ritter and Miriam Hopkins, When Worlds Collide (1951), and Monkey Business (1952) with Cary Grant and Marilyn Monroe.

Keating died of leukemia on August 26, 1963. The Incredible Mr. Limpet proved to be his last film in a live-acted/animated role. He is entombed in Portland, Oregon's Mount Calvary Cemetery.

He is survived by his son Larry Keating who as of December 2011 was 83 and lives in Palm Desert, California.
