Standing at 7’8, Jerry Sokolosky is also one of the tallest men in the world.
“Jerry was a tremendous blessing,” says the director Tim Chey. “We didn’t want to create a CGI imitation like ‘The Incredible Hulk’ and so our casting directors set out to find the biggest guy and he’s very big.”
The casting team scoured the planet until they discovered the Canadian actor in Toronto. “They flew Jerry to North Africa just to meet with the director and producers,” says Michelle Albright, the U.S. Casting Associate. “While there, they decided to cast Jerry and the rest is history.”
