Michael Clarke Duncan dies at 54

Quote:
Michael Clarke Duncan -- best known for his Oscar-nominated role as a death row inmate who possessed magical healing powers in the 1999 film "The Green Mile" -- died on Monday at the age of 54, according to his fiancee Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth.

Duncan had been in a Los Angeles hospital since July 13 following a heart attack and died on Monday morning after close to two months of treatment.

At 6-feet, 5-inches tall and approximately 300 pounds, Duncan was nominated for an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for his role as gentle giant prisoner John Coffey in "The Green Mile," also starring Tom Hanks. Duncan won the role, in part, due to a recommendation by Bruce Willis, who he worked with on 1998's "Armageddon." Duncan went on to appear with Willis in three more films -- "Breakfast of Champions," "The Whole Nine Yards" and "Sin City."

Duncan's career spanned three decades and included roles in other television and film titles including "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," "Married with Children," "The Jamie Foxx Show," "Living Single," "Bulworth," "Arli$$," "A Night at the Roxbury," "Sister, Sister," "Cats & Dogs," "Planet of the Apes," "King of the Hill," "CSI: NY," "Talladega Nights," "Kung Fu Panda," "Two and a Half Men," "Bones," and most recently "The Challenger," which is yet to be released. The African American actor also played The Kingpin in 2003's "Daredevil," starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner -- a notable achievement seeing as the character in the comics, on which the film is based, was always depicted as being white.

"The Green Mile" was nominated for four Oscars in 2000 and won 15 other awards including best supporting actor trophies for Duncan from the Black Reel Awards and the Broadcast Film Critics Association Awards.

Born and raised on Chicago's South Side and brought up by a single mother, Duncan is said to have resisted temptations of drugs and alcohol, instead focusing on school and acting. He worked digging ditches after attending community college, according to his biography on IMDb.com, then quit his job and moved to Hollywood, launching his acting career while in his thirties. More than three years ago, Duncan is said to have become a vegetarian, and appeared in a video for animal rights organization PETA earlier this year.

Re: Michael Clarke Duncan dies at 54

He would have made a great Raikage(Past).

Everytime I think about him in Planet of the Apes when he hits the dinner Table and says, " Bow your heads!"

That is some Rakaige shit,lol.

Vin Rhames, current Raikage.

You will be missed MCD!

Re: Michael Clarke Duncan dies at 54

Dude actually choose to appear in the Scorpion King. Had it coming.






















Seriously though, he had some great voice work. Shame.

He was the only reason (other than Kelly Hu) I was able to stomach that movie (And yes, I own it, just because I wanted to have the entire Mummy collection... screw the other SK movies).

And as far as his "voice", there was only one other voice that I like(d) listening to other than his, and that one is James Earl Jones.

Re: Michael Clarke Duncan dies at 54

I was really shocked and saddened to see this. Never heard anyone say a bad comment about the man and he always seemed like a genuinely nice person.

I can't tell if you're joking, stupid, or accidentally racist.

Re: Michael Clarke Duncan dies at 54

He was in "The longest yard" though. He was the big black guy there...
Or was he the one with the cheese burgers?
I don't really remember.
