Michael Clarke Duncan died Monday in Los Angeles, two months after suffering a devastating heart attack.

The actor's fiancée, Omarosa Manigault, confirmed the death of the 6-foot-5, 300 pound Duncan, who appeared in dozens of films, including Armageddon, Planet of the Apes and Kung Fu Panda, as well as his break-out film, The Green Mile, for which he earned an Oscar nomination.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Omarosa performed CPR on Duncan when he suffered his heart attack, saving his life that day.
