Clickonline writes "Most of you may be surprised to discover Duncan was never a professional football player (his mother wouldn’t let him - Scared he’d hurt himself... and not EVERYONE else!), but gradually broke into acting while working as a bodyguard for the likes of Will Smith, Jamie Foxx and the Notorious B.I.G."
Cinema Blend: Those who have read Frank Miller's Sin City series have known that there would be a slight hiccup when it came to casting Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, namely the part of Manute. In Robert Rodriguez's 2005 film the character was played by Michael Clarke Duncan, but the Oscar nominated actor sadly died earlier this year. Given that Manute has a big role in the sequel's titular story Rodriguez has to find a replacement actor for the part, and today it seems he has found his man.
Oscar-nominated actor Michael Clarke Duncan has passed away at the age of 54, according to his fiancée Omarosa Stallworth and news reports on the wire. Duncan suffered a heart attack on July 13 and according to his publicist, he never fully recovered from it.
HollywoodReporter: "Michael Clarke Duncan is in negotiations to voice the character of Kilowog in Warner Bros.’s Green Lantern movie.
The movie, based on the DC Comics character and starring Ryan Reynolds, is deep in post-production. One of the facets of the process is the voice work; Geoffrey Rush signed on to voice the character of Tomar-Re, a bird/fish-like alien, two weeks ago."
