Michael Clarke Duncan's admirers had the chance to say goodbye to the actor.

A public memorial for the late star was held Sunday at the Hall of Liberty at Forest Lawn Memorial-Parks and Mortuaries in Hollywood Hills.

According to NBC, the four-hour, closed-casket memorial included a slideshow, remarks from friends and a screening of the 1999 film, which earned him an Oscar nomination, "The Green Mile."

His fiance, reality TV star Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth, along with many Hollywood A-listers, are reportedly expected to take part in Monday's private services at the same location.


Duncan, 54, died on Monday from what the coroner recently confirmed as natural causes. Omarosa's rep told E! News that the actor "never fully recovered" from his July 13 heart attack, and added, "Manigault is grateful for all of your prayers and asks for privacy at this time."
