Early Life

Chicago is where Duncan was born. His mother-in-law, Jean Duncan, reared him and his sister, Judy, by herself following their father’s departure. His childhood dream was to play football, so he tried out for the Chicago Bears of the NFL. He became an actor instead of playing because his mother would not let him. After all, she was worried he would hurt himself. Still, he had to leave the communication programme at Alcorn State University to care for his family and assist his ailing mother.

Duncan weighed 315 pounds (143 kg) and stood 6 feet 5 inches (196 cm) tall. His bulk aided him in his work as a ditch digger for the Peoples Gas Company and as a bouncer at multiple Chicago nightclubs. In addition, he spent a season playing hoops for the Alcorn State Braves and Kankakee Community College. He was among the first 100 people to run onto the pitch at Comiskey Park, home of the Chicago White Sox, on Disco Demolition Night in 1979. Entering third base, he slid. Following the fight, he stole a baseball bat from the dugout when someone stole his silver belt buckle.

Racists Desecrated Duncan’s Grave

Michael Clarke Duncan, the green mile actor, had his tomb desecrated by racists. Duncan’s family discovered that someone had scrawled a crude image of Little Black Sambo on the stone when they visited his Hollywood grave to lay flowers. Duncan, 54, passed away in Los Angeles in September 2012. In numerous films, such as “Sin City” and “Planet of the Apes” (2001), he portrayed the kind giant. According to the family, Forest Lawn removed the unsettling photo after they informed them about it. According to News One, the LAPD informed the family that they were investigating the possibility that the incident was a hate crime.

The Estate’s Mysterious Background

The cemetery itself has a lengthy past. There are many whispers of ghosts and secret meetings. Tucked away on the vast grounds of an ostentatious estate, the cemetery was kept a secret by the rich and famous in Hollywood. Its tall trees and thick undergrowth gave the dead a safe haven, and its hallowed grounds kept their identities a secret.

There are rumours that the owner of the estate, an unidentified person known only as “The Keeper,” bought the property by questionable means. Rumours of dark rituals and sacrifice ceremonies have surrounded The Keeper for years, adding to its aura of mystery and intrigue. It is, therefore, not surprising that Tyler Perry, who takes great pleasure in stirring up controversy, would select such an unusual and divisive site for his friend’s last resting place.

The Ongoing Controversy

Given the unfavourable reputation of the burial site, it is not surprising that the people buried there would likewise be controversial. There has been much conjecture and gossip surrounding Tyler Perry’s decision to interview his friend in such an unusual and potentially haunted location. Some people think Perry made the incorrect decision and that his decision was an attempt to keep his name in the media. However, others contend that his audacious action was merely a ploy to capitalise on people’s preoccupation with the paranormal and the macabre. Perry’s close friends and family vehemently refute the allegations, claiming that Perry was motivated only by their love for Michael Clarke Duncan.

Personal Life

Michael Clarke Duncan’s relationship with television personality Omarosa Manigault began in 2010. Following Michael Clarke Duncan’s death in 2012, Manigault rose to prominence in the court case involving his contentious will.

Standing at six feet five inches (Michael Clarke Duncan height) and weighing more than 300 pounds, Duncan Clarke was of African American descent. Various television series featured him, including The Jamie Foxx Show, Married… with Children, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and The Bold and the Beautiful, where he played the role of a bouncer or mysterious stranger. Films like “Bulworth” (starring Warren Beatty) and “A Night at the Roxbury” (starring Harrison Ford) featured him in similar roles. His 1998 performance as Bear, Bruce Willis’s unconventional astronaut, in Armageddon’s blockbuster action picture earned him critical acclaim.

John Coffey

The Green Mile, a film based on Stephen King’s serial novel, allegedly cast Duncan after Willis introduced him to director Frank Darabont. In the 1999 picture, Tom Hanks played the lead role. John Coffey in Green Mile is a huge but exceptionally nice man on death row with remarkable healing abilities; Michael Clark portrayed him to critical acclaim. The Academy even gave him a supporting actor nomination. He reunited with Bruce Willis for two more comedic blockbusters, 2000’s The Whole Nine Yards and 1999’s Breakfast of Champions, adding to Michael Clarke Duncan movies. Duncan attempted a TV show as well. He and Geoff Stults appeared in the 2012 comedy crime series The Finder.


Michael Clarke Duncan died after having a heart attack in the autumn of 2012, on July 13. Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth, who was a contestant on The Apprentice before becoming Duncan’s fiancée, helped him survive the attack by administering cardiopulmonary resuscitation. On the other hand, he never got over it. After a two-month recovery from the attack, Duncan died on September 3, 2012, at Los Angeles’s Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre from complications related to his heart. He had been born 54 years ago.
