Michael Clarke Duncan (MCD) passed away on September 3, 2012.
He was best know for his Academy Award  and Golden Globe nominated role as John Coffey in The Green Mile.

Duncan and his sister, Judy were raised in Chicago Illinois by his mom, a single parent. Micheal’s aspirations always included acting. He attended Alcorn State as a Communication’s major and played college basketball for Alcorn and Kankakee Community College. However, when his mother fell ill, he was forced to drop out of college and take on  jobs as a ditch digger and a club bouncer to support his family.

At 6 feet 5 inches and over 300 lbs, the actor had no trouble booking gigs as security for some big named celebs such as: LL Cool J, Will Smith, Martin Lawrence and Notorious B.I.G.  Duncan discontinued body-guarding after rapper B.I.G. was murdered in 1997.

In 2010 Duncan began dating Omarosa of Donald Trump’s  NBC’s The Apprentice and  The Ultimate Merger which aired on TV1. She’s credited with saving Duncan’s life by administering CPR to the 54 year old after he suffered a heart attack on July 13, 2012. Duncan never fully recovered from his heart failure and was pronounced dead on September 3, 2012.

According to several media outlets the two remained in a committed relationship until his death. After his death was the first time that Omarosa was referenced  as his fiance.She also described their plans to wed in January 2013. Omarosa says that they’d only shared the news with close friends and family.

Upon hearing of his passing I immediately began to inquire about the age of the child that the couple shared, as I recalled seeing the actress/reality star visibly with child about a year  or a year and a half ago. Unbeknownst to me Omarosa suffered a miscarriage but there are unconfirmed reports that she’s pregnant again. Who knows for sure? Only time (and the person willing to share the couples personal business for a quick buck) will tell. At this time we’ve been advised that neither have children.

My heart and prayers go out to Omarosa’s family ( who recently buried her brother whom was murdered) and also to Michael Clarke Duncan’s family and friends. May they both REST IN PEACE and GOD BLESS!!

So when I think of MCD  I automatically thing of The Green Mile, The Player’s Club, Friday and Zaxby’s commercials. Let us not forget:

Caught Up

The Whole 9 Yards

Brother Bear
Kung FU Panda

The Scorpion King
Dare Devil

The Finder

Redemption Road

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun- Li

Planet of the Apes

and many more
