Sad news today, Bros. We’ve lost Mr. Larson.

Richard Kiel, the towering actor best known for portraying steel-toothed villain Jaws in a pair of James Bond films, has died. He was 74.

Kelley Sanchez, director of communications at Saint Agnes Medical Center, confirmed Wednesday that Kiel was a patient at the hospital and died. Kiel’s agent, Steven Stevens, also confirmed his death. Both declined to provide further details.

For our money, the 7-foot-2 mountain of a man stole the show in Happy Gilmore.

Watch this clip and tell me there’s never been a bigger, funnier person. Kiel makes Shaq look like an amateur.

Haha. Just a fantastic delivery.
