I always enjoyed his appearances on “The Late Late Show” with Craig Ferguson, including the show’s recent trip to Scotland.

Oscar-nominated actor Michael Clarke Duncan passed away on Monday, seven weeks after suffering a heart attack, his fiancée Omarosa Manigault said in a statement to The Associated Press. He was 54.
Duncan was admitted to the hospital in mid-July after suffering a myocardial infarction, from which he never recovered; three weeks later, he was moved out of ICU but remained hospitalized.
A onetime bodyguard who turned to acting in his thirties, the 6-foot-4 Duncan earned Academy Award, Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations for his work in 1999′s The Green Mile, in which he played a gentle giant of a prison inmate who possessed a supernatural gift. His other film credits includes Sin City, Talladega Nights, The Scorpion King and Daredevil.
