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.''
