Richard Kiel net worth: Richard Kiel is an American actor who has a net worth of $1 million dollars. Richard Kiel was born in Detroit, Michigan, and worked as a bouncer and cemetery plot salesman before breaking into Hollywood in the early 60s. He launched film and television careers almost simultaneously, with a guest-starring role on the television series "Laramie", followed up by a role in the feature film, "The Phantom Planet". His remarkable height, 7 feet 1.5 inches, made him popular among Hollywood producers as a bad guy, and he went on to make a steady career of it. He is recognized for his work in such projects as, "The Longest Yard", "The Wild, Wild West", and "Kolchak: The Night Stalker". He became a household name when he was cast as Jaws in the James Bond franchise. He appeared in the "Spy Who Loved Me" and "Moonraker", and has reprised his role in two Bond video games.
Richard Dawson Kiel (born 1939) is an American actor known for his role as the steel-toothed Jaws in the James Bond movies The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) and Moonraker (1979) as well as the video game Everything or Nothing (he also has cameos in many other James Bond videogames). He's also well known as Mr. Larson in the 1996 comedy Happy Gilmore.
Kiel was born in Detroit, Michigan. He made his acting debut in a 1960 Laramie episode called "Street of Hate." He also acted in an unaired TV-pilot featuring Lee Falk's superhero The Phantom, where Kiel played an assassin called "Big Mike", who was hired to kill the title hero.
Kiel broke into films in the early 1960s with the B-movie Eegah (1962), which was later featured on the TV show Elvira's Movie Macabre, Mystery Science Theater 3000, as were The Phantom Planet and The Human Duplicators. He also co-wrote, produced, and starred in the family-friendly movie The Giant of Thunder Mountain. Kiel also appeared as the towering a?? and lethal a?? assistant Voltaire to Dr. Miguelito Loveless in first season episodes of The Wild, Wild West. He later appeared in another role, in the episode "The Night of the Simian Terror", as the outcast son of a wealthy family, banished because of birth defects that distorted his body and apparently affected his mind. This episode is significant because it allowed Kiel the opportunity to really act, rather than just look intimidating. Kiel also had a cameo role in a 1961 episode of The Rifleman.
He also played the role of the hitman with metal teeth Reace in the (1976) film Silver Streak. He and Arnold Schwarzenegger were the original choices to play the title character in the 1977 TV series The Incredible Hulk. Schwarzenegger was turned down due to his height. Kiel participated in the filming of the TV movie pilot. During the shoot, producers decided their Hulk needed to be muscular rather than just towering, and Kiel was dismissed because he possessed more body fat than the producers
