    Actor Michael Clarke Duncan dead at 54
    Sept. 3, 2012, 5:53 PM EST
    LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Michael Clarke Duncan, the hulking, prolific character actor whose dozens of films included an Oscar-nominated performance as a death row inmate in "The Green Mile" and such other box office hits as "Armageddon," "Planet of the Apes" and "Kung Fu Panda," is dead at age 54.
    Clarke died Monday morning at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he was being treated for a heart attack, said his fiancée, reality TV personality Rev. Omarosa Manigault, in a statement released by publicist Joy Fehily.

    The muscular, 6-foot-4 Duncan, a former bodyguard who turned to acting in his 30s, "suffered a myocardial infarction on July 13 and never fully recovered," the statement said. "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."
    In the spring of 2012, Clarke had appeared in a video for PETA, the animal rights organization, in which he spoke of how much better he felt since becoming a vegetarian three years earlier.
    "I cleared out my refrigerator, about $5,000 worth of meat," he said. "I'm a lot healthier than I was when I was eating meat."

    I'm glad someone put this up. I had read in on the other forums. I couldn't believe it was him. I give my condolence to his loved ones and may he rest in peace forever. Thank you Michael for sharing you talents and gifts to us. You will never be forgotten, beleeve that.

    As'e

    I can't help but wonder about this Omarosa lady who admits that she is all about $$ by any means. Even allowing herself to be pimped by Trump and a black preacher on some show a couple of years ago.

    I hope it's thoroughly investigated. You don't hear much about vegetarians having heart attacks, not to mention vegetarians who are also in great physical shape.

    Poor Omarosa,

    her father was murdered when she was 7, her brother was murdered about 2 years ago and now this. After being a vegetarian for 3 years, you would have thought that was plenty of time for all of that plaque around his heart to dissolve from the meat eating. Something just isn't right about his death.
