Michael Clarke Duncan suffered a myocardial infarction on July 13th, but was finally released from intensive care early last month. Despite seemingly being on the road to recovery, he went into cardiac arrest in his home at 2am this morning and was rushed to hospital soon after. As you can see from the video report below, it was believed that he was in a stable condition, but that sadly ended up not being the case as the actor has passed away. While he will always be remembered for playing 'John Coffey' in The Green Mile, Duncan will be most recognisable to readers of this site for playing 'The Kingpin' in Daredevil, voicing 'Kilowog' in Green Lantern and as 'Manute' in Sin City. Rest In Peace.

WOW... What awful news. :( He was great in Daredevil and Green Lantern. He also made one of my favorite cameos in Two and a Half Men as the neighbor. :(
BTW the music in that video is quite distasteful.

[Frick], man. Just....d@mmit. Michael, sir, may you rest in beatiful peace. You, sir, were such a one-of-a-kind actor. It is really sad that you left. But you are now with God, and may you find that peace up there. There will never be another Kingpin, or Kilowog, like you, sir. R.I.P., Mr. Michael Clark Duncan. :')




My friends, stay EPIC...

Man, that's terrible news. RIP big guy.

He passed away at such a young age, man. He could've done more films (CBM films). He was such a fan-favorite/fan-loved actor amongst the comic/geek community, man. He was definitely a dedicating actor to his roles. All of my prayers and my deepest condolonces goes out to his family and Mr. Michael Clark Duncan. You rock, sir. :')

RIP Michael. You made me cry in Green Mile; not an easy thing to do. May you find peace, man.

This is very sad
claybo4131 - 9/3/2012, 3:05 PM
Such a huge screen presence and captured the audience when he was onscreen. His performance in Green Mile was one of the best of all time, unforgettable. He also nailed the role of Kingpin, dont think anyone else could have done that part. Its real sad that he won't get to play Panthro in a Thundercats movie, a role that he really wanted to play. RIP big man.

What an awesome guy. This is sad.
ATrueHero1987 - 9/3/2012, 3:06 PM
RIP Michael Clarke Duncan. You were a great actor!
OptimusPrime114 - 9/3/2012, 3:06 PM
Sad news. Had he lived, he would've made a great Wrex for the Mass Effect movie.

I loved his performances in The Green Mile, Daredevil and Green Lantern.
ManofSteel23 - 9/3/2012, 3:06 PM
