RIP Mean Lion

I love telling people I got to be in a movie with Michael Clark Duncan, though I never got to meet him personally.  I did have an onscreen battle with him, or more specifically the Mean Lion that he voiced for George of the Jungle 2. 

I always admired his work.  He brought an immense humanity along with his immense form.  His basso profundo voice added to his larger-than-life presence.  He was known for many roles, including the role of John Coffey in The Green Mile for which he got nominated for an Academy Award. 

Michael passed away this morning, finally succumbing to complications of a heart attack he suffered in July.  If you have ever had the pleasure of being touched by his work, please send a kind thought to his family and his memory.
