The man with the biggest heart and smile in Hollywood passed away yesterday at the age of 54. I don’t really know what he did besides acting, but I do know that he was just one of the actors that when you saw or heard him on screen he just made you smile. Most notably known for his award winning role in The Green Mile, I know I’ll always remember him for being an awesome Kingpin from Daredevil, Bear in Armageddon, Manute in Sin City, & his voice talents in Kung Fu Panda. If you mention Green Lantern though then you’re just an a-hole. ‘A song for a heart so big, that god couldn’t let it live.’ May angels you in, may angels lead you in.
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.
