Personal Quote:

It was kind of tough because at that age you're not aware of your tallness. I'm still not, really. Many times people would react to the fact that I looked different and I would think that there was something wrong with me -- that maybe one of my shirt buttons was undone or something. It took 20 or 30 years to get used to it. See more »


Only he and Christopher Hart have appeared in The Addams Family (1991), Addams Family Values (1993) and the direct-to-video Addams Family Reunion (1998). See more »
