Speaking out about the life of one of their fellow Hollywood friends, Tom Hanks and Jay Leno were among the eulogizers at Michael Clarke Duncan's memorial service on Monday (September 10).

The 56-year-old actor, who was Duncan's co-star in the hit film "The Green Mile," took a more light-hearted approach to remembering his friend as he enlightened the audience with a story about Michael's short try at being in a gang in Chicago.

Setting a more somber tone, Leno took to the podium to give an emotional speech about the actor and the bright future that Hollywood “might have been” blessed with had he not suffered such an untimely death.

As previously reported by GossipCenter, Duncan passed away on Labor Day after being hospitalized since going into cardiac arrest earlier in the summer.
