Most people remember Michael Clarke Duncan from his starring role in “The Green Mile” but one of my favorite roles of his was in “The Whole Nine Yards.” He played a funny mobster dude named Frankie Figs in that movie.
I cried for hours over “The Green Mile” and only saw it once, I don’t think I could ever see it again. It was a great movie, don’t get me wrong, but of movies I have sobbed over it is in the top 3. I cry at a lot of movies, I’m a total sap, but for “The Green Mile” I was a loud, sobbing, blubbery mess in the theater.
Sadly, Michael Clarke Duncan, age 54, passed away on Sunday, September 2, 2012 due to complications from a heart attack.
Where might you have seen or heard Duncan? Well, other movies he has appeared in are Armageddon, The Scorpion King, comedies Talledega Nights, A Night at the Roxbury and even animated family flicks Kung Fu Panda, Cats & Dogs, Brother Bear.
Rest in peace, Michael Clarke Duncan.
