Matthew J. Willig is an American actor and former American football offensive tackle in the National Football League. He is also known for his intimidating build; 6′ 8½″ (2.04 m) weighing 318 lbs (142 kg), and a size 20 shoes.

He is most familiar to this wiki for portraying Yuri Gobrienko, and a body guard for Malena Bernal. It may be the same character, as the bodyguard is never named, but Yuri is Alexei Volkoff's muscle and depository of the Hydra network.
