R.I.P. Michael Clarke Duncan

| Filed under: Film FlickersR.I.P.Sad Sad

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.

P.S. Check out some pics of the late actor (below).

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – Wow, that was pretty harsh! She was giving her condolences. I don't think her spelling is as important as the sentiment she was attempting to express.

    I liked him in The Island….

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – Someone gives their condolences and you attack them viciously for their grammar? Give your head a shake! A man's life has ended yet you can't see beyond your own bitterness.



  18. 18

    People dissing Omarosa should be ashamed of themselves. She saved his life when he had his heart attack in July. Sadly he did not fully recover. RIP Michael

    I wish his family peace. So sad.

    OMG
    I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE THAT HE WAS SUCH A GREAT ACTOR AND HE WAS SO YOUNG.
    I'M SHOCKED, IT'S JUST TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE TERRIBLE….
    GOD BLESS HIM….
    WHY DOES THE GOOD ONES DIE SO YOUNG AND THE EVIL ONES SEEM TO LIVE FOREVER ?????????



  22. 22

    So sorry, loved him in the Green Mile movie, RIP Michael



  23. 23

    RIP, so sad. My sympathy for Omarosa and his family and friends.

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – And we see yet another side to you … homophobic, hateful, smug, unintelligent and now we can add grammar Nazi to the list. You really are a pathetic little person.



  25. 25

    What a terrible loss! He seemed like such a gentle giant and was a very gifted actor. R.I.P. MCD.

    Re: You Bore Me
    You are the ignorant one. Some of us have severe arthritis in our hands or have had strokes and do damn well to bang out a few understandable comments. Big struggle for us, I guess your biggest struggle is being a civil, humane, human being.

    This is SO shocking, and genuinely sad. :( He was way too young to go, and he seemed like the nicest guy ever.

    Re: bluephoenix – Yes, he DID seem like a big Teddy bear. God rest his soul and console those left to mourn him.

  34. 34

    It's too bad. Hooking up with that obnoxious, diva wanna-bee, drama queen Omarosa proved to be too much for the big guy.

    RIP. Michael Clark Duncan. Didn't know him personally but he came across as a very nice man with a great sense if humor. I always thought that he was an "ideal" man. Now I know he was an angel sent to be with us for a short time. My prayers are with his family and friends.

    I am heartbroken about Micheal Clarke. I don't know anyone that can watch The Green Mile with a dry eye and not agree that he was an amazingly deep actor. Started to watch The Finder this year and loved it….I hope he is respected

    Such tragic news, he was one of my favorite actors.. and i have very few. :(

    I am shocked to see how many people have responded to the ”Grammer Nazi”, causing an uproar of hate on a page of mourning. Shame on all of you. This was not the time or place to be internet trolls.
    What would Michael think of you?
    Rest in peace 'Bear' <3
