I was so sad to see this:


Michael Clarke Duncan, the muscular, Oscar-nominated actor best known for his role in The Green Mile, has died, according to The Associated Press. He was 54.


Duncan died Monday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he had been hospitalized since July after suffering a heart attack, his fiancée, Apprentice alum Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth, told the AP.

Born and raised in Chicago, Duncan moved to Los Angeles in the early-1990s. While looking for acting work, the 6-foot-4, 300-pound Duncan also worked as a bodyguard for actors including Will Smith and LL Cool J.

After a few bit parts, Duncan was cast in Armageddon alongside Bruce Willis in 1998. He followed that up starring opposite Tom Hanks in The Green Mile, an adaptation of a Stephen King novel. Duncan earned a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for his role as John Coffey, a sensitive and supernaturally gifted man on death row, and the film launched his career.

His many other film credits include The Whole Nine Yards, Daredevil, Planet of the Apes and Sin City. He most recently starred on the short-lived Fox drama The Finder. His other TV credits include roles on Chuck, Two and a Half Men and CSI: NY.

How sad indeed. R.I.P

Here's another...

Another far too young...


Starship guitarist Mark Abrahamian has died after playing a show in Norfolk, Nebraska. He was 46.

He’d been a member of the band, led by former Jefferson Starship vocalist Mickey Thomas, for twelve years. He was planning to get married in December.

Abrahamian had been suffering chest pains but hadn’t told his colleagues. He complained of feeling unwell after their opening set on a bill with Survivor and Boston on Sunday, and collapsed soon afterwards.

Tour manager Scott Harrison tells Today Online: “We had just finished the show. We were in the dressing room eating. He told the bass player he wasn’t feeling well.”

The guitarist fell to the floor while on a phone call with his fiancee. Medics rushed him to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Harrison says: “It’s a shock to everyone.”

A band statement says: “We are shocked and saddened at the sudden loss of Mark. We will miss you, brother. Rest in peace.”

Abrahamian was inspired to pick up the guitar after hearing Eddie Van Halen’s Eruption solo. He had worked with a number of big names including Bobby Kimball, Fee Waybill, Joe Lynn Turner and Pat Travers.

Thomas formed his version of Starship in 1992, a year after the original band split and guitarist Paul Kantner set about reforming Jefferson Starship without him
