Michael Clarke Duncan dead at the age of 54

Article from New York Daily News

Michael Clarke Duncan had a heart attack two months ago and never really recovered.

He was admitted to the hospital in mid-July after suffering a myocardial infraction. Three weeks later, he was moved out of ICU but remained hospitalized.

Duncan's probably best known here for his work on Armageddon, The Green Mile, Daredevil, Sin City and Planet of the Apes.

Sorry to hear this - was just watching him in The Whole Nine Yards last night. A big man with a big talent.

Re: Michael Clarke Duncan dead at the age of 54

This is so sad...54 is far too young! He seemed like such a warm, likeable man in interviews and he was so very talented. RIP.

Awful news. He was amazing in everything he did, whether I liked the movie or not.

Also great in the short lived The Finder series.

Saw this going across twitter awhile ago and was stunned.
I didn't even know about the heart attack.
So sad.

RIP MCD

Among other roles, he was a better Kingpin than many gave him credit for at the time.......

Very sad. I'd forgotten he was in Planet of the Apes, too.
