Richard Kiel, Rest In Peace

The very nice, gentle giant known as Richard Kiel has died.  He was 72.

I've met Kiel.  I first met him at a show I was selling at.  He had to ride around on a Rascal because his body was having problems.  That said, he was unbelievably nice, and he told me excitedly about his work for the video game version of Tangled, because he got to expound on his character from the movie.  I met him later at Wizard World Chicago.  I was nervous, because I wanted him to sign my MST3K version of Eegah!, and I always worry how people will react to their movies being goofed on.  Kiel took one look at the box, looked me right in the eye, and said, "Elvira's was funnier."

Rest well, I hope you are able to move freely where you are now.
