A tribute to Michael Clarke Duncan

Hollywood lost a great actor two days ago, and the world lost a good man. Michael Clarke Duncan died of a heart-attack on September 3, 2012. His first role was in Friday in 1995, an uncredited extras role. His last TV appearance was the Bones spin-off, The Finder as the lawyer Leo Knox. His last movie role was The Challenger as Duane, a movie that is in post-production. His breakout role (and one of his most popular) was The Green Mile as John Coffey, a death-row inmate falsely convicted and sentenced to the electric-chair. He was thinking about reprising his role as The Kingpin in the upcoming Dare-Devil remake, but before he could accept or decline...... This is a sad time for movie-lovers and for the world. he became a vegetarian in 2009 and campaigned for PETA, saying the he felt much better after becoming a vegetarian. How should we go on from here? Well, in tribute we can watch The Green Mile, not eat as much meat, and go see his new movies.
