A good friend had a chance to talk with him for a bit and he said that Mr. Kiel is a Super Nice Guy! Bright too!

He is a really nice guy. I met him at a GameStop conference quite a few years ago. Seemed very down to earth.

He was so funny in "So Fine" with Ryan O'Neal.

He was awesome in Happy Gilmore with Adam Sandler. He was Mr. Larson, the huge boss with a nail sticking out of the side of his head.

Met him at a Sci-Fi convention a few weeks ago. REALLY NICE GUY. To get around though, he had to use those red motorized seated scooters. Felt kinda bad seeing that. My prayers are with him... If I was some big Hollywood producer, I would give this man a job! (Like what Adam Sandler did in "Happy Gilmore"!)

Met him about a year ago in Vegas doing an autograph signing at a memorabilia shop at the Aladdin i think it was. He was very friendly and actually seemed to enjoy meeting the people there.

Anyone other than me old enough to remember him as "Voltaire" the assistant to the evil Dr. Loveless on the old Wild Wild West TV show?

He was also played all the Kanamits in The Twilight Zone episode, "To Serve Man". Having never met the man, he does seem like a friendly giant!

For those who don't know, Kiel was the giant alien in the TWilight Zone episode "To Serve Man". He did not speak in that episode, as there was a voiceover for his character.

I remember also he was on a Lassie episode in his younger days. Most guys his size are usually dead long before 60. It sucks he can't really walk around.

I Met Mr. Kiel at Ceasars Palace last year. We talked for a good deal of time and he let me take a couple of pix for my grandson (yeh right, my grandson). Anyway, he is a cool guy, I hope he is doing well.
