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.
"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball
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.
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.

I like that the movie took its time and really built up this world, rather than just make it wall-to-wall action. We were halfway through before The Hunger Games actually began, which was a great opportunity for character-building.
