Watch Tom Hanks’ Touching and Funny Eulogy for Michael Clarke Duncan

Tom Hanks Funeral

Michael Clarke Duncan was laid to rest yesterday in Los Angeles and a number of his friends were on hand to share their memories of the larger-than-life actor including Jay Leno, Holly Robinson-Peete, Stevie Wonder and his ‘Green Mile’ co-star Tom Hanks. Below you can watch Hanks speak lovingly about his favorite Michael Clarke Duncan story, which had the audience laughing.

Instead of focusing on the sadness, Hanks shared a story Duncan told him on the set of ‘The Green Mile’ when, as a youth, Duncan tried getting into a gang. It’s worth watching just to see Tom Hanks do his Michael Clarke Duncan impression.

‘Green Mile’ director Frank Darabont was also in attendance and read a letter from ‘Green Mile’ author Stephen King, which said, “No one has ever done a character I wrote more justice.” Leno said, as his voice cracked, “Just to see such a pure heart and pure kindness, and to see it taken so early, there are no sadder words than what might have been.”

You can watch Tom Hanks say farewell to his friend and co-star Michael Clarke Duncan below.
