Tribute: Michael Clarke Duncan

posted by Nell Minow

The towering, powerful, magnetic actor Michael Clarke Duncan has died at age 54.  Best remembered for his Oscar-winning performance in “The Green Mile” as a prisoner with extraordinary grace and powers of healing, Duncan showed off his skill as a comic actor in films like “The Whole Nine Yards.”  But in that film, as in many others, he was naturally cast as a tough guy, taking advantage of his 6’5″, 315 pound presence and deep, powerful voice.  He worked as a bouncer and bodyguard in real life and he played bouncers and musclemen on screen as well.  He provided voices for animated films “Brother Bear” and “King Fu Panda” and action video games like “Saints Row” and “Soldier of Fortune.”  Most recently he starred in the television series, “The Finder.”

May his memory be a blessing.
