Default Did Larry Storch find it hard to find any roles after F-Troop?

I know Larry Storch did some TV shows after F-Troop was cancelled, but it seemed that he made some minor guest appearances in the context of being a former well-known actor.
The one most significant one I can recall is when he guest starred in All In The Family as one of Archie's friends who was hiring young women to date him and at first Archie thought that his friend attracted women out of nowhere, but when one of the women talks to Archie in a bar and tells him that his friend is paying her to date him, Archie realizes that the women surrounding his friend are really "call girls" and Archie gets mad at his friend for being some kind of "pimp."
It seemed that Larry Storch at this time could not really find roles to get into.
BTW, I recall another episode in which (it seemed)Ray Walston of "My Favorite Martian" made a very small appearance as a desk receptionist on AITF and it was such a meager cameo role and it must have been after AITF was on the air for a few years and "My Favorite Martian" was an old TV show that was mostly forgotten, and it seemed as if Ray Walston could not really find other roles.

Almost every other 60's sitcom star that forever played in reruns career suffered. He was no different.

I remember that episode of All in the Family. The call girl was played by sitcom guest star veteran Arlene Golonka.

Ray Walston had a decent film career appearing in everything from The Sting to The Happy Hooker Goes To Washington. His most iconic role was as the teacher Mr Hand in Fast Times At Ridgemont High. He also played Judge Bone on the 90s series Picket Fences.

Ray Walston had one of the most unusual careers - what he did was mostly consistent with "character actor - but he was so well-liked that he had his own following. I don't know what his most iconic role was, but he was very well known for his roles in the Damn Yankees and South Pacific movies, and he was a major Broadway star, too. Best Actor Tony, two Best Supporting Actor Emmys, forty years apart. He just completely defies category.

Hmm, maybe I need to remind some of you of another "big" project he was involved in after F Troop;

As for Ray Walston, the guy obviously had other roles after My Favorite Martian, but we can all agree that "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" was his comeback role.

Regardless, he was hilarious in F Troop! F Troop should've lasted longer than 2 seasons.
