    I enjoyed every show I saw him in. Such a shame to die so young.

    I am thinking steroids weaken his heart. We are seeing the effects on Arnold Schwarzenegger and his heart trouble

    Sad deal, too young, really liked him in all of the movies he was in. Liked him in Armageddon as well.
    We were just talking about him wondering why we hadn't seen him in any movies lately. Strange deal, he wouldn't breath on his own, highly medicated while in the hospital, etc. They thought he was improving and heart was showing as being strong.

    I hate to hear this, I really enjoyed watching him.

    Godspeed, Michael.

    I was stunned to hear of his passing. I loved his performance in The Green Mile. Rest in peace Michael.

    Fantastic actor. One of the few I would say was probably a good guy off the screen as well.

    The Green Mile is one of our favorite movies, and he played a great part as John Coffey.

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Yes, he'll be missed. Seemed like a really nice guy IRL, too.

    Shame, his passing.
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    He was a true gentleman offscreen and a good actor onscreen. I like him so R.I.P big guy.
