According to TMZ.com Michael Clarke Duncan died as a result of cardiac arrest early this morning. He was only 54 years old. Though he is most widely known for his role in The Green Mile, he has dozens of films and television shows credited to him. His most recent role was in Fox’s show The Finder he played Leo Knox. I will always remember reading that Mr. Duncan would give $5 to any fan who recognized him AND knew his name. He mentioned that he was so often confused with another actor Vingh Rhames.

My heart goes out to his family. They will remain in my prayers.
