Actor's Curse of Three

If you count a Canadian Journalist as an actor, then the "Curse of Three" has reigned over actors this week, Peter Jennings, Barbara Bel Geddes and now Matthew McGrory. Much will be written about ABC News' Jennings and Ms. BelGeddes of Alfred Hitchcock and "Dallas" fame, but Matthew McGrory was on the verge of becoming a constant character actor.

McGrory's best know work was in Tim Burton's "Big Fish," in which he played the giant, Tiny. Most recently McGory was seen in Rob Zombie's "The Devil's Rejects" in which he snapped the neck of William Forsythe. For information about McGrory, here is his website;
