Richard Kiel, the 7-foot-2 actor who most famously played the villainous ''Jaws'' in
two James Bond films starring Roger Moore, ''The Spy Who Loved Me'' and ''Moonraker'',
and also appeared in Adam Sandler comedy ''Happy Gilmore'', died Wednesday afternoon
in a hospital in Fresno, CA just 3 days shy of his 75th birthday.

TMZ first reported the news.

The actor had broken his leg earlier in the week, but it is not clear if that event
is tied to his death.

Kiel had lent his voice to a James Bond videogame in 2003 but more recently had
voiced Vlad for the animated film ''Tangled'' in 2010.

Before his appearances in the Bond film in the mid to late ’70s, Kiel was perhaps best
known for his roles in Burt Reynolds prison football film ''The Longest Yard'' and for
appearing in several episodes of ''The Wild Wild West'' as an assistant to super villain
Miguelito Loveless (played by dwarf Michael Dunn).

He was great in the Bond films and Happy Gilmore.
