Funeral Held for Michael Clarke Duncan
September 10, 2012
Family and friends of Michael Clarke Duncan gathered Monday for a private funeral service for the actor, who passed away last week at age 54.
The private ceremony -- which included remarks by Duncan's Green Mile co-star Tom Hanks and the film's director Frank Darabont -- followed a public viewing on Sunday of his casket at Forest Lawn cemetery's Hall of Liberty in Los Angeles.
Additional celebrities spotted at Monday's service were Emily Deschanel, Robert Townsend, Loretta Devine, Vivica A. Fox, David Boreanaz, Holly Robinson Peete and Geoff Stults.
Also attending the service was the actor's fiancée -- reality star and ordained minister Omarosa Manigault -- who said earlier that Duncan never recovered from a heart attack suffered July 13.
