Richard Kiel played Cousin Carl Hazlitt in The Decision.

Richard Kiel was an actor, voice artist, and comedian is best known for playing Jaws, a giant and seemingly unstoppable assassin with steel teeth who battled James Bond in The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker. Richard Keil is 7' 2" tall.

He was the original choice to play the title character in the television series The Incredible Hulk -TV series. After 2 days of filming, it was decided that he was not "bulky" enough for the role. He was paid for the two movies of the week and replaced by Lou Ferrigno. Kiel was happy this happened because he only had sight in one eye and the full contact lens were bothering him.

Lee Kinsolving as Tim Elder in Boomerang.

 Lee Kinsolving graduated from Episcopal High School in Alexandria, Virginia and attended Trinity College (Episcopal) in Hartford, Connecticut. Kinsolving began acting after his first year of college.

  Lee had done numerous shows. I know I must have seen him in some of them. I just can't recall seeing him that much before. I do remember seeing him in a Gunsmoke / 'The Other Half'.  Even though the plot was predictable, he was great. He played twins. Jess/Jay Bartell.

He retired from acting in 1966, due to his personal frustrations with the business. For two years, he owned a hip restaurant-bar, Toad Hall, in Manhattan.
Kinsolving sold his bar and married in late 1969. Moving to Florida, he managed two art galleries. After divorcing his wife in 1972, Kinsolving, an avid seaman, spent the remainder of his life sailing exotic locales in his private schooner.
