Michael Clarke Duncan has died due to complications from a heart attack that he suffered in July.
The role that he'll likely be remembered for the most is John Coffey in Frank Darabont's THE GREEN MILE, for which he received an Oscar nomination. But he's always been good in all his roles - from Michael Bay's ARMAGEDDON, to playing the villainous Kingpin in DAREDEVIL, to Ricky Bobby's pit crew boss in TALLADEGA NIGHTS - "Don't you put that evil on me Ricky Bobby!" - and Tim Burton's PLANET OF THE APES reboot. He brought a warmth and a charm to each and every role he played.
It was Coffey that brought him the most acclaim, and Duncan was masterful in the part. I can't imagine a dry eye in the house at the end of that movie. Here he is in THE GREEN MILE:
