Oscar nominated actor, Michael Clarke Duncan died today two months after suffering a heart attack. He was 54.
A rep for Duncan’s fiancée Omarosa Manigault say the actor never fully recovered from the July 13 heart attack.
“Manigault is grateful for all of your prayers and asks for privacy at this time,” says the rep. “Celebrations of his life, both private and public, will be announced at a later date.”
Duncan had a handful of minor roles before “The 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 Hanks as a corrections officer at a penitentiary in the 1930s. Duncan played John Coffey, a convicted murderer.
