Yes, I heard this on the radio and didn't recognise the name straight away, until they listed some of his films. RIP :(

I loved him in The Green Mile.

It's hard to believe just how many people have died recently.
Michael is the latest, but there is also:
Max Bygraves 31 Aug 2012
Chris Lighty 30 Aug 2012
Neil Armstrong 25 Aug 2012
Jerry Nelson 24 Aug 2012
Phyllis Diller 20 Aug 2012

I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

He was fabulous as John Coffey in Green Mile.

Sad loss.

Sad loss.

I read the book long before the movie and I couldn't imagine a more perfect actor for the role.

RIP
Hadn't recognized the name, but when somebody mentioned The Green Mile I instantly remembered. Very sad.
