Michael Clarke Duncan
Uncredited originally, this hulking actor was but a bit cameo during Smokey’s retelling of how Red got knocked the f*ck out by Debo. In fact, Friday was Duncan’s second appearance on the screen, as his debut was made in 1995’s Renegade TV series as Shaka. After his brief appearance, the 6’5″, Chicago-born performer would go on to work consistently throughout the 2000s — earning an Oscar nod for his role as John Coffey in Frank Darabont‘s The Green Mile. Sadly, the cheerful actor passed away on September 3, 2012 after suffering a fatal heart attack.
