This has been a heartbreaking summer indeed. I *fucking* loved this guy in Armageddon.
RIP, Michael Clarke Duncan.
Well. I don’t think I can say much more than what’s already been said.
My wife and I saw The Green Mile in the Theater, and the emotions had built up so much up to this point, and the look on John Coffey’s face was so innocent and joyous that we were both bawling like babies during this scene. I remember it very vividly. Sobbing, sniffing, and tears upon tears rolling down our faces.
This man gave us that moment. I can honestly say that I am sad that he has passed and that I will miss him.

He was a great actor and will be missed.
