Nah, no need, it would take a bite out of my Fluther time.

He was the original “Hulk” in the TV series, but was replaced by Lou Ferrigno because he was not bulked up enough.
Also turned down the role of Darth Vader, preferring to play “Jaws” as it would give him genuine screen time rather than acting behind a mask.
Rumours of him refusing to play a Great White in Spielberg’s classic are less accurate.

As was a Kiel-er Bond villain. R.I.P., sir.
