The towering actor who played the mercenary assassin Jaws in a pair of Roger Moore-era 007 movies and the enigmatic alien in one of the most famous episodes of The Twilight Zone died today. Richard Kiel would have turned 75 on Saturday. His agent of 35 years, Steven Stevens Sr, told Deadline that Kiel died this afternoon at St. Agnes Medical Center in Fresno, CA. The 7-foot-2 actor with the crooked smile got his start in early-1060s TV, appearing in such series as Laramie, Thriller and The Rifleman. He appeared in the 1962 sci-fi feature The Phantom Planet before landing the chilling Twilight Zone role. In “To Serve Man,” he played a representative of an advanced, giant alien race called the Kanamits, who alight on Earth amid what seems to be peace and good will. Kiel delivers a mysterious encrypted book to a meeting of the United Nations, and the episode soars from there. »

[Update 5/5/2014 11:08am - Added Charlie Band's reply from Blu-Ray.com]
If you are reading this site, there is a chance that you attend some conventions. Whether you travel to them or they roll into your hometown, more than likely this year you will see Charlie Band. Granted, the deal he is schlepping isn’t too bad. For $18 and your credit card, you can get 3 months of the Full Moon Streaming service in addition to 3 Blu-Rays of your choice. Since I’m not a huge fan of businesses having my credit card in a recurring payment that I always forget to cancel, you can actually give the Full Moon dudes (pun intended) a $20 bill and they’ll give you the same deal without having to worry about that recharge in 3 months. Hell, I did it at Cinema Wasteland last month. I figured that 3 months of the Full Moon streaming service and three Blu-Rays – one of which including Tourist Trap – was a great deal. »
