In Memorium: Michael Clarke Duncan
Michael Clarke Duncan passed away yesterday at the age of fifty-four, never having fully recovered from a mid-July heart attack. His larger than life presence graced many popular action-oriented genre films including Armageddon, The Green Mile, The Whole Nine Yards, Planet of the Apes, The Scorpion King, Daredevil, Sin City, The Island, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, The Last Mimzy, Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins, Kung Fu Panda (voice), and Green Lantern (voice of Kilowog). He also turned in fine work in comedy and drama, culminating in his 1999 Academy Award nomination for "The Green Mile" based on the original Stephen King novel, as Best Supporting Actor. He appeared in numerous television guest roles, and provided voice work in many animated series, films and video games. The Catacombs extends its sincerest condolences to his family, friends and fans.
