Actor unveils longest tongue in US

Californian actor Nick Afanasiev has been credited with having the longest tongue in America by San Diego news station Fox 5.

Afanasiev's tongue measures 3.5 inches from the middle of his closed top lip to the tip of his tongue.

That leaves him just 0.36 inches short of the world record, held by Briton Stephen Taylor, reports Wenn.com.

Afanasiev's tongue got him a cameo on iCarly and the actor has never looked back.

The 20-year-old said: "I knew it was long, I just didn't know it was one of the longest."
