PHILADELPHIA, PA – Quinton Aaron didn’t see this one coming. In fact you could say he was ‘blindsided’.

The actor famous for his break out role with Sandy Bullock had a fumble on a flight to New York. Turns out he was too big of a star to fly.

How big is this guy? Six-feet-eight-inches, and over five hundred pounds. His size may have helped him get the role of a defensive tackle, but it didn’t help him when he showed up to his connecting flight in Philly.

The airline gave him two seats, but that still wasn’t enough room.

Aaron ended up having to rebook his flight. Instead of flying off the handle, the actor took it as a wake-up call. He’s decided it’s time to shed some pounds, and he’s set a goal.
