Michael Clarke Duncan’s jovial spirit and huge smile spread far and wide throughout Hollywood, and that was evidenced at his memorial service on Monday.
Jay Leno, Tom Hanks, Holly Robinson Peete and director Frank Darabont were among those who gathered to honor Clarke Duncan’s memory.
“We did plan a celebration, so it’s not supposed to be a sad occasion,” the late actor’s fiancee, Omarosa Manigault, told HLN’s Nischelle Turner as she held back tears. “We have people singing, and he would’ve wanted to have lots of music, and it’s going to be a good time, it’s not going to be a sad time.”
The speakers, from Leno to Hanks to “Bones” and “The Finder” creator Hart Hanson, tried to remember that in their reflections on Clarke Duncan’s life.
