Michael Clarke Duncan
“Michael Clarke Duncan is an American actor, best known for his breakout role as John Coffey in The Green Mile, for which he was nominated for an Academy Award and a Golden Globe.” Wikipedia
I had no idea that he was a bodyguard for top actors like Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, Jamie, Foxx, LL Cool J and the Notorius B.I.G.
He worked in security jobs whilst in Los Angeles while trying to get some acting work in commercials at this time he was also taking parts in television and films.
It was with the sad passing of the Notorious B.I.G. in 1997 that Duncan decided to quit this line of work.
In 1998, Duncan was cast as Bear in the film Armageddon and the rest as they say was history.
This is such a great loss I love Micheal he was such a talented and powerful actor.
