Terrible loss for all of us fans. RIP Michael. He was top notch all the way, a real actor who gave his heart and soul to every performance. You’ll be missed, my friend.

I’m truly saddened and shocked about the loss of MCD. He was a great talent who seemed humble by the success he had as an actor. He will forever be missed. RIP Michael…

This is so sad. He was such a cool guy, great in The Green Mile, Daredevil , The Scorpion King, The Finder, funny in different parts, just a nice guy and just a fun actor to watch. My heart goes out to his family and friends at this difficult time, 54 is not that old. RIP Michael…
