Actors Inside Famous Costumes, Revealed: Chewbacca, Godzilla, Big Bird, etc
Ever wanted to see who was actually underneath many of the most famous movie costumes of all time?
Designtaxi.com has a great article highlighting the multitude of actors hiding behind famous faces such as Big Bird, Alien, Chewbacca, Harry from "Harry and the Hendersons", and others.
(They of course highlight famous man-in-suit Godzilla actor Haruo Nakajima, pictured above, who I've chronicled in a past article here).
It was especially surprising to see that Barney from "Barney and Friends" was played by none other than David Joyner, a very imposing looking man.
It's just weird (and funny) to imagine this tough looking guy jumping and giggling around in a dinosaur costume.
