Giant American actor of Norwegian descent.  There is some dispute over his height; though many agree he was a little over 7 feet tall.  Some sources go as far as to state he was nearly 9 feet tall (!!)

Due to his distinctive 7+ feet height, he has been mistaken for Clifford Thompson in a couple of films.
Height: 7'2½" Films listed on this page: complete Hal Roach filmography.
