The 7'2" actor was in a ton of films and iconic television shows, including playing Jaws in 2 James Bond pictures, and a scary turn as a Kanamit in The Twilight Zone.

Kiel was just a few days from turning 75.

I loved him in Mean Machine, with Burt Reynolds.

Nobody could chuck a hay bale like Mr Kiel.

RIP

I hate it when people say "rip". People don't understand it's a lazy word that does not pay true respect to those we've lost.

Just say "Rest In Peace". Is it so hard to type everything that takes a few more seconds of your time?

I don't know if this will play outside the UK, but on Sunday Kiel was in a Radio programme with Roger Moore and Britt Ekland about James Bond.

If you want to be truly nit-picking and irritatingly accurate, RIP actually stands for requiescat in pacem, an inscription which was quite popular on Medieval gravestones before English became an acceptable substitute for the Latin sentiment.

@farmerman,
Off the top of my head, Lurch was played by Ted Cassidy. I can see how one of them can remind you of the other.

For those interested, here's a listing of Ted Cassidy (to keep from being confused with Richard Kiel) performances:

@Lustig Andrei,
In Cieszyn Polack Dialect we always use the follwing (or a cyrullic version of the intials). The whole thing was a prayer that the dead sould doesn't zombify n , instead, remains dead. So the RIP wish was later tgged somewhere on the stone or cross like a chunk of garlic.

Hi, Richard Dawson Kiel (September 13, 1939 – September 10, 2014[1]) was an American actor known for his role of the steel-toothed Jaws in the James Bond movies The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) and Moonraker (1979) as well as the video game Everything or Nothing; he also had cameos in many other James Bond video games. He was also known for roles in The Longest Yard (1974), Silver Streak (1976), Force 10 from Navarone (1978), Pale Rider (1985), and as Mr. Larson in the 1996 comedy Happy Gilmore. In television he appeared as the Kanamit aliens in the classic The Twilight Zone episode "To Serve Man" and as Dr. Miguelito Loveless' assistant, Voltaire, in first-season episodes of The Wild, Wild West (1965-1966).
