Reason for visiting Glasgow:

As mentioned previously when noting Michael Clarke Duncan’s visit to the city, Mila Kunis was in Glasgow as a guest on Craig Ferguson’s The Late Late Show. Like Michael Clarke Duncan she was interviewed by Ferguson at the Tron Theatre and she also filmed a segment at the Necropolis – an outtake from this can be seen below.

 

Glasgow’s Global Visitors: Michael Clarke Duncan

michael clarke duncanName: Michael Clarke Duncan

Born: 10th December 1957 in Chicago, Illinois, USA (died 3rd September 2012 in Los Angeles)

Credits include: The Green Mile, Sin City, Planet Of The Apes

Reason for visiting Glasgow:

In March of this year Craig Ferguson brought his The Late Late Show to Scotland, visiting a number of towns and cities around the country and filming interviews and sketches with a variety of guests. Michael Clarke Duncan, and also Mila Kunis, spent time in Glasgow. Clarke Duncan was interviewed in front of a local audience at the Tron Theatre (see below) and was also filmed at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, as well as visiting Ferguson’s old high school in neighbouring Cumbernauld, Lanarkshire.

At the time Michael Clarke Duncan stated on his Facebook page “Having a blast in Glasgow, Scotland! Saw Craig Ferguson old high school!” His page and this posting are still visible online which is somewhat poignant, as only six months later the actor died of a heart attack. It could therefore be considered a privilege for the city that this popular actor got to visit and speak so highly of it before his untimely passing.
