Michael Clarke Duncan, whose movie credits include The Green Mile, Planet of the Apes, Sin City, Armageddon, The Scorpion King, etc, died yesterday morning in a Los Angeles hospital after suffering a myocardial infarction on July 13th. He remained hospitalized in the same LA hospital and never recovered enough to be discharged.
Not only known for his movies, Duncan was also known for his multitude of television spots plus lending his distinctive voice to video games and animated shows. He was one of Hollywood’s gentle giants and he will be missed by all. Duncan’s infectious smile and ability to convey such an amazing range of emotions are a huge loss to the movie industry.
Duncan’s fiancee, Reverend Omarosa Manigault, announced the actor’s death in a statement released by publicist Joy Fehily.
