Quotes: Michael Clark Duncan and Will Smith

“Of course, people told me, ‘Mikey, you will never be an actor. You don’t have the look. You’re ugly.’ 

Michael Clark Duncan (RIP)

This is the big guy that played John Coffey in The Green Mile (1999) for which he was nominated for an Academy Award and a Golden Globe -not bad considering it was Michael’s second appearance with a big role on the silver screen. He also played Bear in the 1998 blockbuster Armageddon. He was brought up by his single mom and, when she became ill, he had to drop out of the Communications program at Alcorn State University to support his family. Michael’s life is a clear reflection of this other quote:

“People can’t do something themselves, they want to tell you that you can’t do it. You want something? Go get it.”

Movie quote from The Pursuit of Happyness (2006) Chris Gardner (played by Will Smith)
