He had a heart attack a month or so ago, and complications got him. You might remember him as the "gentle giant" in the film "The Green Mile". He played that part so well... RIP

I was interested to find out that Bruce Willis helped him to get that role as John Coffey. (like coffee, but not spelled the same) I loved that movie. Have to pop the DVD into the player again soon.

Sorry, Mr. Duncan, that I left the "e" off the end of your middle name in the title. :redface:

Yeah, I read that on IMDB. Pretty cool.

Sad.

To paraphrase James Darrell Edwards III, Duncan was well over twice the man I am, but not much older than I am. And his role in Green Mile is memorable.
