Mourners gathered in Los Angeles on Sunday to pay their respects to late actor Michael Clarke Duncan at a public memorial.

The four-hour closed-casket celebration of his life was held at the Hall of Liberty in Hollywood Hills' Forest Lawn Park cemetery.

The service featured a slide show, touching speeches from friends, and a screening of the 1999 drama The Green Mile, which earned Duncan an Oscar nomination.

The 54 year old died on Sept. 3 from complications of a heart attack he suffered at his L.A. home in July.

A private memorial for Duncan is expected to draw a crowd of Hollywood A-listers to Forest Lawn on Monday.
