    I forget his name, but whoever played Kingpin in the movie wasn't much taller than Affleck either.


Per IMBD:
Affleck: 6'2
Gandolfini: 6
Duncan: 6'5

Per Marvel:
Kingpin: 6'7

Five inches is a huge difference at this height. I'd wager Duncan probably has at least 50 more pounds than Gandolfini, who I'd wager doesn't actually have that much muscle. Of course there are going to be other factors involved, the role required a physical actor since it would require fight scenes, salaries had to be considered, availability, etc.

Gandolini doesn't have the physical presence that the role required. You can't argue that he does.
