Michael Clarke Duncan passed away at the age of 54, leaving behind a solid body of work in film. With his rich, booming voice and towering physique, Duncan was a commanding presence any time he was on screen. One of his first film roles was in Armageddon, where he struck up a friendship with Bruce Willis. That, in turn, led him to be cast in his most recognized performance as John Coffey in Frank Darabont’s adaptation of Stephen King’s novella, The Green Mile. Duncan’s performance was tender, endearing and moving; audiences easily sympathized with the doomed character and the Academy of Motion Picture Sciences recognized him with a nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his work.
