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.
