Mr. Larson From ‘Happy Gilmore’ Dead At 74

Actor Richard Kiel died on Wednesday in Fresno, Calif. He was 74. 

Along with his role in “Happy Gilmore,” the 7-foot-2 Kiel also had a memorable role in “Jaws” and was a James Bond villain in “Moonraker” and “The Spy Who Loved Me.” He will most remembered in golf circles as Mr. Lason — Happy Gilmore’s old boss, the guy with the nail in his head and Shooter McGavin’s worst nightmare. 

In honor of the man in his legendary role, here are some of Mr. Larson’s best moments from “Happy Gilmore”:

“You can count”

“You can hardly even notice it.”

“Play it as it lies”

“Aren’t you forgetting your 9-iron?”

Rest in peace, Mr. Kiel.
