Was very bummed to learn this weekend that Michael Clarke Duncan had passed away. That seemed…odd, and when looked for his age I found he was only 54. I also found out he was engaged to Omarosa. Also odd.

Duncan had a heart attack in July apparently, and has been recovering since, but took a turn for the worse and passed this weekend. I guess his heart couldn’t handle the load of his bulldozer-esque physique after all these years.

Obviously most will remember him for The Green Mile, which is a damn good film no matter how many times you watch it, but the dude’s been in about a zillion movies over the past 20 years. Before he was an actor, he was a bodyguard for the likes of Will Smith, LL Cool J and Notorious B.I.G. He was off-duty the night Biggie got shot, and he didn’t do the whole bodyguard thing after that anymore.

He’ll be missed, and 54 is still way too young for anyone to go.

“Awful tired now, boss. Dog tired. ”
