Originally written September 04, 2012 on Lost My Way:
If you don't know who Michael Clarke Duncan is by name, then you'll most certainly know him as the giant black guy from The Green Mile. Duncan, one of my favorite actors, died Monday at the age of 54 from a heart attack. He was brought to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles to be treated for a heart attack but never recovered from it. Duncan has acted in movies such as Armageddon, Planet of the Apes, and one of my personal favorites, Talladega Nights.

This is the type of person that everybody loved regardless of whether they've met him or not. I'm just upset that now I'll never have the opportunity to meet him in person to see how big he actually is. A man that big with a voice that makes you feel safe just from hearing it? That doesn't come around very often, my last hope is either meeting Morgan Freeman or James Earl Jones now. I can't sub either of them into a fun game of tackle football though; Freeman would most likely lose a limb and I highly doubt Jones would be able to run for that long. My dreams of the best game of pickup football died today.

TL;DR Hollywood lost one of its best actors in Michael Clarke Duncan Monday as he died from a heart attack.
