Rest in Peace

In Memorium

Matthew McGrory was 32.  He was the deep-voiced 7-foot-plus actor who moved from appearances on Howard Stern's radio show to a high-profile role as a gentle giant in the movie "Big Fish."

As a fan of Stern's morning show, I was well aware of Big Foot, but "Big Fish" earned him a special place in my heart.  That movie really struck a nerve with me, in a very, very good way.  I can watch it over and over again and be deeply affected each and every time.  Big Foot was   Karl the Giant, and he was befriended by a young Ed Bloom.  It was an exceptional performance and one that I will never forget.
