Where Are They Now?: The Cast Of Friday


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.

    Whoever wrote this need to remove it. How do you write an article on a classic movie and don’t even know the names of the actors/actresses with incorrect pictures? Epic fail!!!!

    • I wrote this article and it seems as if you possibly have Mr. (in your case Ms.) Magoo syndrome. To paraphrase Jay Z, do you read through these stories, or just skew through it?
