Actor Michael Clarke Duncan passed away today of complications of a heart attack he suffered in July. He was 54.
Duncan was best known for his portrayal of John Coffey in The Green Mile starring Tom Hanks. I remember seeing that movie when it came out. It was a great ensemble cast but Duncan really stood out. His performance garned Duncan an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. In recent years, Duncan did a great deal of voice work most notably in Kung Fu Panda and Brother Bear.
Aside from The Green Mile, I also remember Duncan from this Lincoln Town Car commercial.
