Michael Clarke Duncan Dead: 'Green Mile' Actor Dies At 54

LOS ANGELES -- Michael Clarke Duncan's fiancee says the Oscar nominee for "The Green Mile" has died while being hospitalized following a July heart attack.

Publicist Joy Fehily released a statement from Clarke's fiancée, the Rev. Omarosa Manigault, saying the 54-year-old actor died Monday morning in a Los Angeles hospital after nearly two months of treatment following the July 13 heart attack.

The 6-foot-5, 300-pound Duncan appeared in dozens of films, including such box office hits as "Armageddon," "Planet of the Apes" and "Kung Fu Panda,"

Duncan had a handful of minor roles before "The Green Mile" brought him an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actor. The 1999 film, based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, starred Tom Hanks as a corrections officer at a penitentiary in the 1930s. Duncan played John Coffey, a convicted murderer.

 

 

 

The Green Mile is a great film. I can't believe, though, that Duncan has died at such a young age. May he rest in peace.

I remember seeing him on Two and a Half Men. What a great actor, especially with emotions and attitudes. 54 years of age is way too young to die.

Not to mention Mr. Duncan was a class act that stayed from the crap/controversies and police rap sheets that many in Hollyweird have these days. PPL. From Kim K, Kayne West, Linday Lohan, Charlie Sheen, many Hip-Hip performers and others could follow. It also helped he was discovered as an adult in his late '30's rather than as a teen or young adult in their early 20's.

 

RIP to the "Gentile Giant." :mellow:
