|Character actor William Bendix definitely had the right attitude and voice to play Ben Grimm in a 1960s big budget, live action FANTASTIC FOUR movie. He would have made a great Ben when he was in human form. However, Bendix didn't have the size and physical presence to play the Thing.|
This guy did.
Dan Blocker, who starred as Hoss Cartwright on the long running television series BONANZA, would have made a perfect Ben Grimm, both in human form and made up as the Thing.
