Godzilla Star ‘Haruo Nakajima’ Dead At 88

Godzilla will never be the same … Haruo Nakajima, the man who brought the Japanese monster to life, has died.

Nakajima wore the Godzilla bodysuit — which was originally made out of cement — for nearly 20 years of movies, starting in 1954. Dude had range though — he also played Mothra and King Kong in the 60s.

He started his career in samurai and World War II films before scoring the fire-breathing role in “Godzilla, King of the Monsters.” Best of all, the 1998 box office bomb wasn’t on his watch.
Nakajima was 88. Go, go Godzilla.
