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.

  1. One of the first things I read this morning through twitter, such a great loss, dude was so charismatic. He was apparently fucking Omarosa all this time, different strokes…

  2. I was kinda sad when i read about that.
    In every Interview I saw him, he was such a nice and funny guy.

    Doug Walker aka Nostalgia Critic described exactly how I felt:

    “Every time I saw him in an interview he seemed to not only possess a big body, but also a big heart. It seemed like he was always smiling, always joking, and always having a good time with whoever he was with. He worked hard, followed his dreams, and became unbelievably enjoyable to watch. I will miss him.”
