I clock in at a height of 6 feet 6 inches, though I've never before had occasion to mention it here on The Hayfamzone Blog
. My height is just perfect for me, though, and I revel in it.
This morning on the radio, 6 foot 5 inch Howard Stern
said that he many times when he was younger wished that he was not so tall. I found that interesting.
said that he came close to playing Ant-Man
on the big screen. This was a few years back and Howard
had discussions with Stan Lee. Stan
was going to write an original screenplay to serve as a vehicle for Howard
, and they just needed to pinpoint what Marvel
character would get the nod. Howard
wanted to zero in on a relatively obscure hero that the public would have no expectations about, and he and Stan
settled on Ant-Man
was also drawn to Ant-Man
because the shrinking powers would be a sort of wish fulfillment from his childhood. All well and good but Stan
both got busy and nothing ever came of their brainstorm.
