In The Hangover, Gershenz played Felix, whose pants are removed in a hospital room, with the Wolfpack present, while being checked out by a doctor.

Gershenz didn’t become an actor until he turned 80. He made appearances on TV’s Will & Grace, Parks and Recreation, Modern Family, Mad Men, House, and Jimmy Kimmel Live, as well as the movies I Love You, Man and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.

Gershenz owned a Los Angeles record store for decades, and his collection was the subject of a short 2011 documentary, Music Man Murray.
