That’s too bad. I remember he had some health issues a few months back.

He had just been released from ICU a few weeks ago after he was found by Amorosa in full cardiac arrest. Very sad, a great actor and to die so young..RIP

I know nothing about him as a person. As an actor I thought he was very good. Sad to see him exit the stage.

Will Obama use his death to his advantage somehow at the convention?

Whatever else he may have been, Michael Clarke Duncan was a very good character actor.

In the spring of 2012, Clarke had appeared in a video for PETA, the animal rights organization, in which he spoke of how much better he felt since becoming a vegetarian three years earlier.

“I cleared out my refrigerator, about $5,000 worth of meat,” he said. “I’m a lot healthier than I was when I was eating meat.”

Think I need to stock up on bacon.

I don't think The Finder will have another season. But, you are right, he was good in the role of Leo. I have always liked him on screen.

I disagree, Bears fans travel well, and if they’re having a good season we show up in greater numbers. There are a couple of NFL teams I’ll say that about: Bears, Packers, Steelers, and the Cowboys. The Packers have been good for so long and that has given them more fans. Although, I have to say WI really has their stuff together lately good football, great beer, cheese, bratwurst, Scott Walker, Paul Ryan, lower taxes - I just might have to move there :P

Just heard on the radio about his passing. A true shame that such a personable man has departed so early. He seemed like he’d be an awesome guy to hang out with for a beer and a conversation.

I did not know that. I thought it was doing okay in the ratings. One less thing to miss now that I cut my satellite service I guess.

Last year, I went to see Green Lantern. The main reason for going was not Ryan Reynolds, who looked too much like Ben Stiller in the mask, but because my favorite character in the GL/DC Universe, Kilowog, was in it.

I was delighted when I recognized the voice of Michael Clarke Duncan. I thought it was perfect casting.

And now, sadly, he is gone. And he took John Coffey with him.

Rest in peace, boss. We'll miss you.

Interesting list. I was thinking SF and Oakland used to be rather polular too but I haven’t seen much support for those in recent years.

Or not. Sounds like he had health concerns for some time.

California is a fragmented sports state. Wisconsin IMO is a a little fragmented too, seems that a lot of people adopt the Cubs and Bulls up there, but the state always rallies around the Pack.

Fox already canceled “The Finder”. Here is one link that confirms that.
