Michael Clarke Duncan Dies; Actor Was 54

by at . Comments

About six weeks after he suffered a cardiac arrest and needed his fiancee - Omarosa Manigault - to revive him and get him to the hospital, actor Michael Clarke Duncan has passed away. He was 54.

Best known for his role in The Green Mile and most recently a series regular on Fox's The Finder, Duncan reportedly died unexpectedly, though he was hospitalized at the time.

TMZ sources say Omarosa's mother was at Duncan's side, while the former Apprentice star herself simply left the room for a short while and returned to the horrible news.

While details are sketchy at the moment, the actor's rep says his client never fully recovered from last month's myocardial infarction. The rep adds in a statement:

"[Omarosa] 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."

Prior to his Oscar nomination for The Green Mile, the 6'5", 300-pound Duncan served as bodyguard for such stars as Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, Jamie Foxx, LL Cool J and Notorious B.I.G.
