The Michael Clarke Duncan-type (real name not known) was an inmate, and later a guard, at Springfield Penitentiary.


He apparently enjoyed killing people, as he tried to strangle Homer. He then asked his pet mouse mouse, Mr. Jingles, if he wanted some cornbread, but then he shouted that he was going to kill him.[1]

He and Mr. Burns were cellmates when Burns was imprisoned for art theft. The Duncan-type helped cleanse Burns of his evil; after Burns was released he tried to convert Fat Tony.[2]

He later became a guard at the prison. When Bart suspected that his new neighbor Walt Warren was actually Sideshow Bob, the Duncan-type showed him Sideshow Bob in his cell to prove that Walt wasn't Bob.[3]

At some point, he became a prisoner again and was helping out picking up rubbish along the highway whilst singing a song. He found a packet of cigarettes and kept them. He later helped to search for Bart.[4]

Behind the Laughter[edit]

  • His appearance is similar to that of the character John Coffey from The Green Mile, played by Michael Clarke Duncan.
    • Michael Clarke Duncan was initially intended to voice this character, but he declined.

Kevin Michael Richardson voices the prisoner in American History X-Cellent, but Hank Azaria voices him in The Bob Next Door. Kevin would reprise his role in Gone Boy.
