(AP) – Actor Richard Kiel, who starred in two James Bond films as the
steel-toothed villain Jaws (below), died today.

The 7-foot-2-inch actor was best known for playing the Bond villain in
1977′s “The Spy Who Loved Me” and 1979′s “Moonraker,” but a new
generation got to know Kiel from his role in 1996′s “Happy Gilmore” as
Adam Sandler’s adversary turned ally towards the end of the film.

Kiel was recently treated at St. Agnes Medical Center, according to the
Associated Press. His cause of death was not released.

His representative Steven Stevens called him “a giant actor, a giant man,
[and] a giant friend.”
