How do I know he’s no longer too short? Because per imdb, he is the exact same height as John Boyega: five foot nine.
Because he’s in costume walking around Hollywood – something people do a lot, usually when they’re not famous – it’s not quite as funny as when Arnold Schwarzenegger did it pretending to be an inanimate object. In fact, during AFI Fest I saw some of this being filmed and it was obviously some kind of stunt – but given the proximity to a certain theater I would have bet you it was Jimmy Kimmel in the suit.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
