From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Matthew McGrory (May 17, 1973 – August 9, 2005) was an American actor, known for his massive height.

McGrory was born in West Chester, Pennsylvania, and trained in law at Widener University. At 7 foot 6 inches (2.29 metres), he was in great demand to play giants - he had done so in many films such as Big Fish and television shows including Malcolm in the Middle. The Guinness Book of World Records also gave him the title of both the tallest actor and having the world's largest feet - size 29½ or 18 inches (46 centimetres) long. Due to this, the Howard Stern Radio Show featured him frequently as a character named Big Foot. He was found by paramedics sent to his home in Sherman Oaks, California, dead of natural causes.
