This African American actor, who stood 7 feet, 2.5 inches tall, attended Penn Hills High School in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He started his junior year at 6' 5" and finished it at 6' 9"! He played basketball throughout his high-school years and won a scholarship. He averaged 18 points a game and 10 rebounds! He played basketball during college, but not when it would interfere with his major at George Washington University in Washington, DC, which was Theatrical Arts. During his college years, he met Jay Fenichel with whom he would later make musical productions. Upon graduation, Fenichel moved to Los Angeles and Hall moved to Venezuela to play basketball. After a year, Hall lost interest and relocated to Los Angeles, California. Along with Fenichel, the duo put together two night-club acts/musicals. One was a semi-autobiographical two-man musical, "In Five," and the other was a two-man show called "The Worst of Friends," both of which played in night clubs throughout the LA area. They also had a promotional business where they did promotional acts in department stores for new products. While working on the set of the series "227" (1985), he met his co-star, Alaina Reed Hall, who played Rose Lee Holloway. They married -- both on the set, and in real life -- and they had two children. After his success playing the imposing title character in Predator, Predator 2 was released December 1990. Sadly, in April 1991, he died of AIDS, which he contracted through a contaminated blood transfusion given to him after a major automobile accident a few months prior to that date. Date of Death: April 10, 1991, Hollywood, California, USA (AIDS)
