Michael Clarke Duncan (December 10, 1957-September 3, 2012) guest starred on George Lopez as Dr. Holland, the Powers Bros. Aviation company dentist who placed braces on Max, who complained that they were too tight, because he wished to have them removed to impress a girl in "George to the Third Power" in Season Four (episode #13). He also guest starred as Rockwell in Crash Nebula.

Michael is best known for his breakout role as John Coffey in The Green Mile in which he co-starred with Tom Hanks, and for which he was nominated for an Academy Award and a Golden Globe. He also appeared in motion pictures such as Armageddon (1998), The Whole Nine Yards (2000), The Scorpion King (2002), Daredevil (2003) and Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006). His voice can be heard in films such as Brother Bear (2003), Kung Fu Panda (2008) and Green Lantern (2011).

Career

Duncan took other security jobs while in Los Angeles while trying to get some acting work in commercials. During this time, he worked as a bodyguard for celebrities like Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, Jamie Foxx, LL Cool J, and The Notorious B.I.G., all the while doing bit parts in television and films. When rapper Notorious B.I.G. was killed in 1997, Duncan quit the personal-protection business.

After having begun his career with several bit parts playing bouncers in films such as Bulworth and A Night at the Roxbury, Duncan first came to prominence when he was cast as Bear in the blockbuster Michael Bay action film Armageddon (1998). During the production of the film, Duncan struck up a friendship with castmate Bruce Willis and it was Willis' influence that helped him to get his breakout role as gentle giant John Coffey in the Frank Darabont film The Green Mile (1999).

Starring alongside Tom Hanks, Duncan's acclaimed performance netted him an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor in a Supporting Role and a Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture.[1][2]

Death

In September 2012, Duncan died at the age of 54 from a heart attack.
