THE DEPARTED: And on a sad note, TALLAWAH joins the rest of the film world in mourning the death of actor Michael Clarke Duncan, 54, best known for his Oscar-nominated performance in The Green Mile. Duncan, who passed away on Monday after being gravely ill for months, leaves behind an impressive legacy of big- and small-screen work. “When something happens, we always say it happens for a reason,” said Duncan’s The Scorpion King costar Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. “I’ll miss you, brother.” His Green Mile colleague Tom Hanks told CNN that he was "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.”
