Richard Kiel, otherwise known as “Jaws” in The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker, ascended today. He was four days shy of his 75th birthday. Kiel may have peaked with his 007 films, but he was a steadily employed actor for a half-century, starting in 1960 when he was 20 or 21. You can tell from his voice and manner on this 1985 David Letterman clip that he was quite the settled sophisto. Let no one forget that Kiel played the titular role in Eegah (’62), one of the absolute worst films ever made. That same year he played the lead Kanamit in “To Serve Man,” a legendary Twilight Zone episode. I don’t hold the fact that he was a born-again Christian against him.
