Watched "The Longest Yard" not only a super funny movie, but a super funny cast :) This guy played Switowski, one of the biggest and strongest players, had a deep voice and super huge muscles, but was the nicest- and not so brightest- one there! Loved him... BODYGUARD defiantly!
Directed by Robert Aldrich. With Burt Reynolds, Eddie Albert, Ed Lauter, Michael Conrad. A sadistic warden asks a former pro quarterback, now serving time in his prison, to put together a team of inmates to take on (and get pummeled by) the guards.
