I realize this is a bit late, but if I remember correctly, whenever the E.T. suit was used (there were multiple versions of the E.T. figure: an animatronic, mannequin of sorts, etc.) the filmmakers called upon the services of a man with an absent lower body or no legs. Perfect, really, considering if you were to catch a glimpse of the E.T. silhouette unawares, you might think it an amputee. An amputee with an oddly shaped head, but an amputee nonetheless.
