James Bond's 'Jaws' Actor Dies

Richard Kiel, the towering actor known for playing the villain Jaws in two James Bond movies, has died at age 74. The 7'2" actor was hospitalized last week after breaking his leg. Kiel played bad guys as far back as the TV shows The Man From Uncle, The Wild, Wild West and others. But it was his role as the hulking assassin who killed his prey with a rack of steel-capped teeth in a pair of Bond films that catapulted him to the top rank of movie villains. Kiel battled Roger Moore in both The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker. The teeth were so uncomfortable that he could only wear them for 35 seconds at a time.
