Re: Michael Clarke Duncan dead at the age of 54

This is very sad news. I just read about it on FB. He was still quite young. I've seen him in a dozen movies--Scorpion King, Armageddon, voice of Kilowog in Green Lantern, etc.

Rest in peace, Mr. Duncan ...

I liked him in everything I saw him in. That doesn't happen a lot. Rest in peace Mr. Duncan.

This is terrible. He had such energy, verve and charisma in all the interviews I saw him in. He seemed to be such a great guy. I'll miss seeing him. RIP

Re: Michael Clarke Duncan dead at the age of 54

I just watched the execution of John Coffey scene from The Green Mile and what a heart wrenching scene that was. I was shocked when I read the news today.

RIP

He was, from what I've seen in his interviews, a gentle giant.

You will be missed, Sir. You will be missed.

RIP

I find this one of the best scenes in the movie, very powerful.

I doubt anyone had a problem with his portrayal of the Kingpin, it was top notch like everything else he did.

R.I.P. Mr. Duncan
I did not know he was ill, either..so this came as an sad surprise.
He seemed like a really nice guy, very down to earth and gave some very good performances on screen.
