The US entertainment industry lost one of their assets last September 3, 2012, when Michael Clark Duncan succumbed to the complications of a heart attack earlier this year. This actor is best known for playing the role of John Coffey in the movie The Green Mile but he has also made his mark in some TV series, voice acting for movies, commercials and even video games.
“Big Mike” as Tom Hanks fondly calls him, has several films up his sleeves during the course of his 17 years in the industry. This includes Armageddon, The Whole Nine Yards, The Scorpion King, Daredevil, Planet of the Apes, Sin City, The Island and others. His most remarkable work in films was the movie The Green Mile where he earned a nomination for Best Supporting Actor in the Oscars and Golden Globe Awards. In terms of voice acting, his most notable roles are that of Tug for Brother Bear 1 and 2, Commander Vachir in Kung Fu Panda, and Kilowog in Green Lantern.
Mr. Duncan’s big presence in the Hollywood scene will truly be missed. Adieu and thank you for giving the viewers some of the unforgettable movie and television characters like Bear, John Coffey and Leo Knox.
