I liked him a lot in Green Mile and Finder. Even though I thought him as Kingpin was a bad idea, he really did a great job. RIP.

This is truly terrible. I loved all of his work and he seemed like a genuinely nice person.

I'm in the minority in thinking that he was a fine choice to be the Kingpin. The script was what did him in.

He always came off as a very friendly, funny guy in interviews, forever humble and loving his life. He was a great foil for Craig Ferguson during the Late Late Show's recent trip to Scotland.

Also a big WWE fan and friend of the Rock. I've seen Rock and Jericho already tweet their condolences, and was hoping they'd mention him on RAW. Maybe on SD!...

He was great with Craig Ferguson, he was great in comedy and action and drama and came off as incredibly likable in all his roles.

Aw dude this is horrible news! I still remember watching him throw Ice Cube through a window in Player's Club when I was in high school! I also thought he was a interesting choice for Kingpin (he had nothing to do with that film's failure), and I loved him in Slammin' Salmon. I still remembered when Shane McMahon punked him out at Wrestlemania and wondered if that was a legit reaction or Duncan being "in the know".

I also loved him and Craig Ferguson in Scotland, especially when they went to Craig's old grade school. This is sad I'm gonna watch those clips now.

As a Chicagoan, I always enjoyed his story of sliding into third base after running onto the field at Disco Demolition.

Sad to hear.

Terrible news.
I had already forgotten he was in bad shape, assuming he was on hsi way to full recovery.

I remember seeing him in the Green Mile and being thoroughly impressed by his amazing performance.
I went to see that movie with a bunch of coworkers who thought it was 'an okay movie' while I was wiping the tears from my face.

Another great memory is his role in Talladega nights,
as Ricky Bobby's boss. The scene where RB stabs himself and how they deal with it..hilarious.

MCD seemed like a cool guy. Liked wrestling, did a ton of voice work for cartoons and video games.

I thought he was a bit to "nice" for Kingpin. Wasn't a huge deal breaker for me that he was black because he had the size. He just had too kind a presence to play a villain.

I also liked his role as the overconfident Rhino Captain in Kung Fu Panda. And how he got humbled when witnessing Tai Lung's escape, and seeing about two dozen sticks of dynamite hurled in his direction.

Arrow is renewed, as expected. (m.deadline.com) The article even cites that Arrow's renewal "was never in doubt". 2 seasons down, 8 to go!
