‘Green Mile’ actor Michael Clarke Duncan in ICU after heart attack
Michael Clarke Duncan, the actor with the booming voice from “The Green Mile,” was rushed to the hospital Friday after suffering a heart attack.
After undergoing CPR, Duncan was taken to a hospital in Los Angeles and admitted to the ICU.
“According to doctors, Michael Clarke Duncan suffered a myocardial infarction early this morning,” his publicist told E! News. “He is now stable and we look forward to his full recovery.”
According to TMZ, the 54-year-old star’s girlfriend, “The Apprentice” alum Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth, found that he had gone into what the website called “a state of cardiac arrest” about 2 a.m., gave him CPR and resuscitated him. Duncan’s publicist would not confirm that report, according the Associated Press.
Duncan most recently appeared in the short-lived Fox series"The Finder” and the Ryan Reynolds superhero flick “Green Lantern.”
[For the Record, 3:25 p.m. July 13: This post and its headline originally said Duncan was in the ICU after suffering cardiac arrest. An early report from TMZ said he’d gone into “a state of cardiac arrest” at home; his publicist later was specific about the actor suffering a myocardial infarction, or heart attack. A paragraph explaining cardiac arrest has been removed from this post, and the headline has been changed.]
