Before They Were Stars: Michael Clarke Duncan in a PC Adventure Game

You may have heard the sad news that Michael Clarke Duncan has just died at the age of 54. Duncan was taken to the intensive care unit after suffering a heart attack on July 13, 2012, and was still hospitalized when he passed away on September 3. Of course, Duncan is best known for his Oscar-nominated turn as death row inmate John Coffey in The Green Mile and his breakout role came when he played Bear in Armageddon. Before that, he had plenty of small bit parts in various films and television shows and worked security jobs on the side to make ends meet. Appropriately enough, his very first bit part was playing a security guard in an interactive adventure game called Panic in the Park, which was released on CD-ROM for the PC in 1995. R.I.P., Mr. Duncan, you will be missed.
