According to ABC News, actor Michael Clarke Duncan of The Green Mile and “Bones” fame has died. His fiancee Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth confirmed his death with the Associated Press. Duncan was hospitalized in July after suffering a heart attack and never fully recovered. He was 54 years Old.
Michael Clarke Duncan was born and raised in Chicago and was working as a ditch digger and bodyguard in Hollywood before getting his break in 1998’s Armageddon. His co-star Bruce Willis recommended him for the role of an inmate with magical powers named John Coffey in 1999’s The Green Mile.
In a 2011 interview with TheUrbanDaily Duncan spoke on how in love he was with Omarosa and that a vegetarian diet had helped the 6′ 5″ actor slim down from 315 pounds to 280.
“Oh man I have never been so much in love than I am now with this woman,” he said. “This woman is fantastic and she can cook like a chef. And I’m a vegetarian so it’s hard to please my stomach, but she can go down there and whip it up. It’s so wonderful being with someone that you can see yourself spending the rest of your life with.”
