    He had a really interesting life story and he was great in the Green Mile. It's a sad day for us all.

    But I'm not thinking. Neil Armstrong, now Michael Clark Duncan. According to the Rule of Three, there's gonna be one more celebrity death soon.

    Just saw it on Reddit myself, he was such an amazing actor. Did they even announce he had the Heart Attack before?

    I'd rather America's Rebecca Black first. She's way worse than Bieber any day of the week.

    Yes he is.

    I'm more inclined to hate any celebrity that sings songs clearly referencing sexual stuff that's target audience is pre-teen girls. I may not know/heard of many Rebecca Black songs, but the ones I've heard are little-to-no sexual references.
    Every one of Justin Beiber's songs I've heard even parts of is sexual in nature.

    I'd really like to see less hate for teeny boppers
    than remembrance of a fine actor, in this thread.

    I don't think that's too much to ask.

    The dude is 17 or 18 years old. Obviously he's going to sing about sex just like every other singer. It's just the teens themselves that are in love with him because of his looks. Not really his fault.

    @Vulpes Abnocto: You're right, I apologize on my behalf.

    I was joking, but I guess it flew right over some people's heads.

    I have a "dunkin" joke lined up, but... I'll pass.

    He was a fine actor, and it's a shame we lost him so soon.

    Damn that's sad. He was a great actor. Especially played a beautiful role in green mile. Props to his gf too for performing cpr instead of going into a panic and becoming utterly useless like most ppl would in that situation.
