September 04, 2012

Tom Hanks and Gary Sinise have led the tributes to their The Green Mile co-star Michael Clarke Duncan following his death yesterday. The actor never fully recovered from a cardiac arrest he suffered at his home in Los Angeles in July and he passed away in hospital on Monday morning. He was 54.


"I am terribly saddened at the loss of Big Mike. He was the treasure we all discovered on the set of The Green Mile. He was magic. He was a big love of man and his passing leaves us stunned." - Tom Hanks

Back in 2002, Michael Clarke Duncan had thanked Tom Hanks at the AFI 30th Life Achievement Award Ceremony, which paid tribute to Tom Hanks's career.
