What happened to the actor who played Predator?

Watching the extras on the 2-disc SE last night they listed the actor 1955-1991, how did he die? Who plays the new Predator in Alien vs. Predator?

Hey, I did the same thing an wondered the same thing too (about how he died).

His name was Kevin Peter Hall and he died of AIDS "from a blood transfusion" he had received months earlier. I though the blood supply was pretty clean by that point, US testing for HIV began in '85. Perhaps he was on location somewhere? Regardless, he seemed like a heck of a nice guy.

He set off a self-destruct timer in an effort to kill a U.S. Army commando and blew up.

He was also Harry in Harry and the Hendersons, which Universal is probably not going to release this on dvd.

Strange that it took so little time for him to die. Weird.

Misfits of Science.

My hatred of the 80's is turned up another notch.

Why not? (I know, I know, "search is my friend" but I'm fat and I'm lazy, so just tell me!)
