Michael Clarke Duncan, the actor best known for his Academy Award nominated supporting role in The Green Mile died earlier today. His death is due to complications that stem from a heart attack he had in July of this year of which he never fully recovered from. He was 54 years old His rep released a statement saying,
Michael Clarke Duncan passed away this morning in Los Angeles, said his fiancée, Reverend Omarosa Manigault. The Oscar-nominated actor suffered a myocardial infarction on July 13 and never fully recovered. Manigault is grateful for all of your prayers and asks for privacy at this time. Celebrations of his life, both private and public, will be announced at a later date.
This is so sad. The Green Mile is up there as one of my fave movies and he is the main reason for that. He was a pretty good actor and just always seemed so humble and full of life in all the interviews I saw of him. I hope that his fiance and family get some peace and privacy during this time and that he rests in peace.
