Actor Michael Clarke Duncan Dies at 54

Earlier this evening, I was saddened to hear about the passing of actor Michael Clarke Duncan.  Duncan apparently suffered a myocardial infarction on July 13 and never fully recovered, dying Monday morning at a hospital in Los Angeles. and The Wrap have obituaries.

Duncan is probably best known for his appearance in the 1999 Frank Darabont film, The Green Mile, for which he earned Oscar and Golden Globe nominations.  Duncan played John Coffey, a man wrongly convicted of rape and murder. Coffey had supernatural powers in his hands that allowed him to heal and to even bring back the dead, and he strikes up a friendship with the character played by Tom Hanks, Paul Edgecomb.  Duncan also appeared in four films starring Bruce Willis, who became Duncan's friend after the two appeared in the 1998 blockbuster, Armageddon.

Negromancer offers ours condolences to Michael Clarke Duncan's family and friends.  Rest in peace, Mr. Duncan.
