THE ISLAND

MICHAEL CLARKE DUNCAN (Starkweather) was catapulted to stardom with his unforgettable performance as John Coffey in Frank Darabont's gripping adaptation of Stephen King's "The Green Mile.” For his poignant portrayal of the gentle giant who is wrongly condemned for a murder he did not commit, Duncan received a number of Best Supporting Actor honors, including an Academy Award® nomination, a Golden Globe nomination, a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award nomination, an Image Award nomination, and a Critics' Choice Award from the Broadcast Film Critics. He was also named the Male Star of Tomorrow at the 2000 ShoWest Convention. In addition, Duncan shared in a SAG Award nomination received by the entire cast of "The Green Mile.”

Duncan most recently co-starred with Bruce Willis in the innovative crime drama "Sin City,” directed by Robert Rodriguez from the graphic novel by Frank Miller. The film marked Duncan's third teaming with Willis, following the crime comedy "The Whole Nine Yards” and the sci-fi blockbuster "Armageddon,” directed by Michael Bay. It was Willis, in fact, who called director Frank Darabont to suggest Duncan for his breakthrough role in "The Green Mile” after they worked together in "Armageddon.”

Duncan's other film work includes the independent action comedy "D.E.B.S.”; "Daredevil,” with Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner; "The Scorpion King,” starring The Rock; Tim Burton's "Planet Of The Apes,” with Mark Wahlberg; "See Spot Run”; "A Night at the Roxbury”; and Warren Beatty's "Bulworth.”

With his distinctive deep voice, Duncan is also one of the busiest voiceover actors in the business. He can be heard in such films as "Racing Stripes,” "Delgo,” "Dinotopia: Quest for the Ruby Sunstone,” "Brother Bear,” "George of the Jungle 2” and "Cats & Dogs.”

On television, Duncan has guest starred on numerous series, most recently including "George Lopez” and "CSI: NY.”
