During a memorial service for the late actor Michael Clarke Duncan, who passed away last week due to complications from a heart attack, his former Green Mile co-star Tom Hanks gave a rather amazing eulogy, complete with an anecdote about Duncan's brief stint in a gang when he was a teen growing up in Chicago.

The anecdote, which can be seen above, is told animatedly by Hanks, and details a time when Duncan sort of joined a gang as a teenager only to be told "no" by his mother. 

Other speakers at the event included Duncan's fiancée Omarosa Manigault, and late-night talk show host Jay Leno.
