Dead Person of the Day – April 10 – Kevin Hall

0 Comments 10 April 2013


Its shocking the subject of today’s DPD isn’t more well known. I have to admit that I didn’t connect the dots before descending into the archives late last night.

Do you realize that the lovable sasquatch character from the Harry and the Hendersons franchise and the Predator (yes THAT Predator) are the same person! Its True!

Kevin Hall – today’s DPD.

Hall was a giant standing well over 7’2″. He went to George Washington University where he played basketball and majored in theater. After graduating he went to Venezuela to pursue a career in the lucrative South American professional basketball scene. Shockingly it didn’t pan out and he returned to L.A. in 1984.

Here’s where the story gets a bit unbelievable. Not only was Hall part of Harry and the Hendersons AND Predator but he also got his start on 227. For those of you out there not familiar with the program….get familiar with it.

We have a new contributor to the DPD effort today with today’s obit coming from Jet Magazine. You can access the obit by clicking here and you might want to spend some time checking out the rest of that issue as well.
