Was sad to hear that Richard Kiel passed away today aged 74. Famous for playing the villain ( then hero ) Jaws in The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker films. Classic Bond character and one who terrified me as a kid. RIP dude.

He will be missed. Sad

I think my favorite movie he appeared in was "Happy Gilmore".

He was definitely my favourite Bond 'villain', I enjoyed the comedy he brought to the role.
As a kid I also loved this 'Shredded Wheat' advert that aired in the UK.
