Michael Clarke Duncan Dead at 54

Sad news to report--Michael Clarke Duncan, star of movies like The Green Mile and The Whole Nine Yards passed away Monday morning.

The 54 year-old reportedly passed very suddenly. He recently had a heart attack (myocardial infarction) and was recuperating in the hospital, but never fully recovered.

His fiancé Omarosa was with him at the time of his death.

Duncan's rep tells TMZ, "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 best known for his role as John Coffey in 'The Green Mile' - for which he was nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor - but he also appeared in a long list of blockbusters, including 'The Whole Nine Yards', 'Daredevil', 'Armageddon', 'Sin City' and 'Green Lantern'.

May he rest in peace.

Omarosa
