Best known for his Oscar-nominated portrayal of gentle giant John Coffey in The Green Mile, Duncan will also be remembered for helping to save the world in Armageddon, starring as Attar in Planet of the Apes and Manute in Sin City.
Green Mile co-star Tom Hanks took to Twitter to say, "I am terribly saddened at the loss of Big Mike." He added: "He was the treasure we all discovered on the set of The Green Mile.
"He was a big love of man and his passing leaves us stunned."
Duncan also guest-starred in Two and a Half Men as Charlie’s neighbour Jerome.
Men star Jon Cryer recalled a fond memory on Twitter, ‘I 1st "met" Michael Clarke Duncan at a charity softball game. When I say "met" I mean he hit a line drive into my crotch. #shouldawornacup’
He added: ‘The crotch hit came in handy later when he and I had to sing the theme from "Shaft" a capella on my show. Great guy. Tragic. He will be missed.’
RIP big guy.
