Actor Michael Clarke Duncan was best known for his role in “The Green Mile.” 

Michael Clarke Duncan, the actor who earned an Oscar nomination for his role in “The Green Mile,” has died after complications from a July heart attack, his fiancee says. He was 54.

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

“The Oscar-nominated actor suffered a myocardial infarction on July 13 and never fully recovered.  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,” the statement said.

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.”   

According to The Associated Press, Duncan had a handful of minor roles before “The Green Mile” brought him an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actor. Duncan played John Coffey, a convicted murderer, in the 1999 film, based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, that starred Tom Hanks as a corrections officer at a penitentiary in the 1930s. 

HH: “Coffey like the drink, only not spelled the same.”  I found him to be a great addition to Two and a Half Men.

Whoever judged the Bee Gees as a guilty pleasure, I’m declaring a mistrial. The Bee Gees are pleasure.
