Michael Clark Duncan, Dead At 54
Yesterday, it was announced that Michael Clark Duncan died of a heart attack at the young age of 54. I know many will herald his numerous outstanding performances in various movies, namely The Green Mile. But, to me, he is, and always will be, The Kingpin, of 2003's Daredevil.
Duncan brought real power and (dare I say it?) weight to the role, doing more to lend the movie credit than Ben Afleck's portrayal of the blind hero for which it is named.
He was a true talent. Prayers for God's best to his family and loved ones.
Comicbookmovie.com recently conducted an interview with Duncan, in which he spoke a bit about his career. Alas, we won't see him portray Panthro, but you can read the interview here.
