The actor still remains in the hospital despite making progress in his health.

The 54-year-old star - who best known for playing John Coffey in the 1999 Tom Hanks movie The Green Mile, suffered the myocardial infarction on July 13.

He reportedly was found by his girlfriend of two years, The Apprentice contestant Omarosa Stallworth.

His 38-year-old partner performed CPR and revived him.

She recently tweeted: "Everyday GOD continues to smile upon my luv Michael Clarke Duncan on this arduous road to recovery. God is with us every step of the way!!"

Since 'The Green Mile', Michael has gone on to star in numerous motion pictures including 'The Whole Nine Yards', 'Planet of the Apes', 'The Scorpion King' and 'Kung Fu Panda'.
