I just saw, on my Twitter feed, that burly actor Michael Clarke Duncan has died of a heart attack at the tender age of 54. That, friends, is a damn shame. The man was a talented actor-- an Oscar nominee, in fact-- and a good all-around soul, despite his massive, daunting frame. Personally, I thought he was the best thing about that horrible Ben Affleck movie, "Daredevil," in which Duncan played the Kingpin. He seemed to be about the only person having fun with his role, and as has been true in other movies, he didn't seem to take himself too seriously. Such a lack of arrogance is rare in Hollywood.

RIP, Mr. Duncan.

I am sad. A real talent, and young to boot. Thanks for the post.
