Very sad news from today. Michael Clarke Duncan, known mostly from his Academy Award nominated role in “The Green Mile”, passed away today while being hospitalized following a myocardial infarction on July 13th. Mr. Duncan was only 54 years old.
I know Michael Clarke Duncan was primarily known for his film career vs. his all-too-short TV career on the short-lived “The Finder” last season, but I had to send my condolences to his family and friends.
Everything I have ever read about Duncan, painted him as a kind and loving man…a gentle giant. All the interviews I have ever seen with him showed a man who loved what he did. had a genuine love of life, and a humility about him that was rare in Hollywood.
It’s always sad when people leave us, especially when it is way before their time. Michael Clarke Duncan, we may be crying down here, but I’m sure they are smiling and singing tonight in Heaven now that another angel has passed through St. Peter’s gates.
Rest in peace!
