Michael Duncan got several roles as a bouncer in a few Hollywood films in the 1990’s. Duncan’s shined as Bear, a rather large oil roughneck in the movie Armageddon. This later landed him the role as John Coffey in the Green Mile (one of my favorite movies) and Oscar recognition. Duncan was nominated for best supporting actor in this film.
