Oscar Nominee Michael Clarke Duncan passed away this morning.
The celebrated actor of films such as The Green Mile and Armageddon was only 54 years old.
The actor was staying at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles where he was being treated for a heart attack.
According to a statement the hulking actor had "suffered a myocardial infarction on July 13 and never fully recovered."
Here was what his rep also said:
"[Omarosa] 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."
Duncan had been nominated for a Best Supporting Oscar for his performance in the movie The Green Mile and had appeared in several blockbuster films since then.
Rest in peace, big guy. You'll be missed.
