Michael Clarke Duncan Leaves Intensive Care 3 Weeks After Heart Attack
The "Green Mile" star remains hospitalized as his family asks fans for their prayers.
The Green Mile star Michael Clarke Duncan remains hospitalized in Los Angeles more than three weeks after suffering a heart attack.
Publicist Joy Fehily said in a brief email statement Monday that the 54-year-old actor "was just moved from the intensive care unit but remains hospitalized" following his July 13 heart attack.
"His family are firm believers in the power of prayer and have asked that you keep him in yours during this time," the statement said. No further information was available on Duncan's condition.
Duncan went into cardiac arrest early July 13 and might have died had his girlfriend, The Apprentice star Omarosa Stallworth, not acted quickly and performed CPR after discovering him unconscious, TMZ reported at the time.
The Chicago native, a former bodyguard to such stars as Will Smith and Jamie Foxx, lent his voice to last summer’s Green Lantern movie and this year starred in the Fox series The Finder, the recently canceled Bones spinoff created by Hart Hanson.
Duncan's other credits include Armageddon (1998), The Whole Nine Yards (2000), The Scorpion King (2002) and Daredevil (2003).
Stallworth, who has appeared on a number of reality TV shows, has said she first met Duncan at a Whole Foods grocery store.
