Michael Clarke Duncan passed away this evening. He was widely known for his role in The Green Mile. I’ve yet to see this movie, but I have seen him in many other roles.
If you’ve not had the chance to experience Mr. Duncan’s powerful acting skills, I encourage to celebrate his life by checking out a few of the flicks he has appeared in. I definitely plan on watching The Green Mile, finally!
Believe it or not, you might him from appearances in The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, the voice of Commander Vachir in Kung Fu Panda, the voice of Benjamin King in Saints Row (video game), the voice of Clydesdale in Racing Stripes and more family/kid/teen related roles.
For a complete filmography head over to IMDB.
I always like reading bios of actors and actresses when I watch movies. For me I find it fascinating.
Here are a few facts about Michael’s life.
- He had 5 cats and a chinchilla.
- He was a blue belt in Brazilian JuJutsu.
- Has appeared in 4 films with Bruce Willis: Armageddon (1998), Breakfast of Champions (1999), The Whole Nine Yards (2000) and Sin City(2005).
- He wanted to play football in high school, but his mother would not let him, fearing he would get hurt. He then turned to acting.
