From USA Today:

 

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Michael Clarke Duncan‘s fiancee says the Oscar nominee for The Green Mile has died while being hospitalized following a July heart attack.

 

Publicist Joy Fehily released a statement from Clarke’s fiancée, the Rev. Omarosa Manigault, saying the 54-year-old actor died Monday morning in a Los Angeles hospital after nearly two months of treatment following the July 13 heart attack.

 

The 6-foot-5, 300-pound Duncan appeared in dozens of films, including such box office hits as Armageddon, Planet of the Apes and Kung Fu Panda.

 

Duncan had a handful of minor roles beforeThe Green Mile brought him an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actor. The 1999 film, based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, starred Tom Hanksas a corrections officer at a penitentiary in the 1930s.

 

Duncan played John Coffey, a convicted murderer.

 

 

From TMZ:

 

Michael Clarke Duncan, star of such movies as “The Green Mile” and “The Whole Nine Yards,” passed away this morning. He was 54.

According to our sources, his passing came very suddenly. We’re told his fiancee, Omarosa Manigault, was with him in his hospital room in Los Angeles and left for a short period of time. When she returned … he had died.

Our sources say Omarosa’s mother was with him when he passed.

Duncan’s rep tells TMZ the actor never fully recovered from the myocardial infarction he suffered on July 13. As TMZ first reported, Omarosa found Duncan in cardiac arrest and performed CPR and was able to resuscitate him before calling 911.

The rep tells us, “[Omarosa] Manigault is grateful for all of your prayers and asks for privacy at this time. Celebrations of his life, both private and public, will be announced at a later date.”

Duncan was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of John Coffey in “The Green Mile.” He worked as a bodyguard for celebrities like Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, Jamie Foxx, LL Cool J, and Notorious B.I.G. before he got his break.

 

 

Michael Clarke Duncan, who is known for his Oscar-nominated role in The Green Mile, has died, reports the Associated Press. The wire service is attributing the news to his fiancee, Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth.

 

Duncan was hospitalized in Los Angeles after a heart attack in July.

 

At that time, publicist Joy Fehily said in a brief e-mail statement that the 54-year-old actor suffered a myocardial infarction.

 

As soon as the news broke, Hollywood stars began sharing their reactions on Twitter. Here are some:

 

Jordin Sparks: “RIP Michael Clarke Duncan. Thank you for being so kind to me & for sharing your talent with the world. You will be truly missed.”

 

Mario Lopez: “R.I.P Michael Clarke Duncan… One of the nicest & most professional guys I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. So sad…”

 

Michael Chiklis: “R.I.P. Michael Clarke Duncan
