SHARE Michael Clarke Duncan ``the kindest guy’': Ken Williams

Actor and Chicago native Michael Clarke Duncan was a good friend of White Sox general manager Ken Williams, and longtime fan of the Sox. The actor who won an Academy Award nomination for his role in “The Green Mile” died Monday, never recovering from a heart attack on July 13.

Duncan narrated the video of the Sox’ 2005 World Series championship season.

“Michael was a close friend,” Williams said in a statement Monday. “He was the nicest, kindest guy anyone could ever know. He was a great fan of the Chicago White Sox and often called me to offer advice. His friendship will be missed.”
