The Career of Michael Clarke Duncan

Hollywood lost a big man with a big heart this past week. Michael Clarke Duncan.

Most people kneew Michael Clarke Duncan as the Gentle Giant on death row accused of murdering two young girls in the movie The Green Mile, and while that is probably his most notable acting role there was so much more to this big muscular man who passed away on September 3, 2012 at the age of 54.  But his career was so much fuller and so much more varied then most people even realize.

He actually acted in around 20 different movies including Armageddon, The Last Mimzy and the 2001 version of Planet of the Apes. He also did voice over parts for a handful of movies including Kung Fu Panda and Cat’s and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore.  At the time of his death he had three movies that were yet to come out.  Which will come out later in 2012 and 2013: In the Hive, The Challenger and Criminal Emprie for Dummies.

Duncan also appeared in many different television shows and had a re-occuring role on the television show The Finder in 2012. 

What a lot of people are not aware of is that Michael Clarke Duncan lent his voice to several different video game characters.

Duncan who was just 54 had, had a heart attack back on July 13th of 2012 and was still unergoing treatment for it.  It appears his heart just gave way.  Duncan was engaged to Omorosa who gained reality star fame on the Apprentice and went on to do other shows as well. He passed away at a Los Angeles Hospital. 

Michael Clarke Duncan was a big man with a big smile and a big personality.  His career would have certainly continued to flourish.  He will be missed by movie, television, and video game fans.
