THE GREEN MILE

MICHAEL CLARKE DUNCAN (John Coffey) appeared opposite Bruce Willis in the 1997 summer blockbuster "Armageddon" as Bear, one of a group of roughneck oil drillers. Recently, he reteamed with Willis for the gangster comedy "The Whole Nine Yards," set to be released next year.

Duncan also appeared as a bouncer in Warren Beatty's acclaimed satire, "Bulworth," and had featured roles in such movies as "The Player's Club" and "A Night at the Roxbury."

His television credits includes guest roles on "The Jamie Foxx Show," "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air," "Weird Science," "Married...With Children," "The Wayans Bros.," "Sparks" and "The Bold and the Beautiful."

Born-and-raised in Chicago, Duncan studied communications at Alcorn State University in Mississippi. Returning to his hometown, he landed work with Peoples Gas Company while moonlighting as a bouncer at various Southside clubs. A chance encounter with a stage producer won him a security job for the road company of "Beauty Shop, Part 2," which brought the 6'5," 315 lb. talent to Los Angeles after a 56-city tour.

Although down to his last $20, he again found security work before obtaining his first agent, at a now-defunct talent shop. He finally won a role as a drill sergeant in a beer commercial. He continued doing national and regional TV spots before winning a walk-on role in F. Gary Gray's hit comedy, "Friday," his film debut.
