Richard Kiel Facts
Once said that people are always confusing him with André the Giant, Fred Gwynne ("Herman Munster" from "The Munsters" (1964)), or Ted Cassidy ("Lurch" from "The Addams Family" (1964)), all of whom are deceased.

Original choice to play the title character in the television series "The Incredible Hulk" (1978). After 2 days of filming it was decided that he was not "bulky" enough for the role. He was paid for the two movies of the week and replaced by Lou Ferrigno. He was happy this happened because he only had sight in one eye and the full contact lenses were bothering him.

Interviewed in Tom Weaver's books "Eye on Science Fiction" (McFarland & Co., 2003) and "A Sci-Fi Swarm and Horror Horde" (McFarland & Co., 2010).
