# CDXXXVIII…Big Birthday Wishes to Heaven…

As today’s date, December 10, has not been spoken of here in the past, I figured that the following “post” from my book, ROCK ON DUDEZ (still on Amazon Kindle) should do that justice…as you’ll see in this brief snippet…

# clxxxix…”Kingpin”-Sized RIP…

Today, December 10th, is the birthdate of late brilliant actor Michael Clarke Duncan (1957-2012), who, in case the name doesn’t ring a bell, was the actor that portrayed the villainous ‘Kingpin’ in the hit comic book movie, “Daredevil”.  His career-defining role, however, was in the hit drama, “The Green Mile”, along with Tom Hanks, and earned him an Academy Award nomination.

His acting career, which spanned from 1995 until his death in 2012, was dotted with countless television, movie and video game appearances.  Some of his movies include; “The Scorpion King”, “Green Lantern” (live action movie with Ryan Reynolds, voiced ‘Kilowog’), “Planet of the Apes”, and “Armageddon”.  His light will surely be missed…

Also celebrating today are/were; late actor Chet Huntley (1911-1974), late actress Dorothy Lamour (1914-1996), late actor Dan Blocker (1928-1972), actress Susan Dey (1952), Wang Chung vocalist Jack Hues (1954) and Accept (80’s metal) guitarist Wolf Hoffman was born in 1959.

On the list, as well, are actress Nia Peeples (1961), celebrity chef Bobby Flay (1964), former San Jose Sharks’ journeyman Rob Blake (1969), The White Stripes’ Meg White (1974), wrestling personality JTG (1984) and actress Raven-Symone was born in 1985.

Hope you enjoyed your stay…and please come back soon (I know I will!)…
