Michael Clarke Duncan on a Respirator After Heart Attack

The Green Mile star Michael Clarke Duncan has been on a respirator since being hospitalized on Friday in LA after suffering a heart attack.

But the 325 pound actor is said to be 'breathing above the respirator', according to TMZ, with doctors optimistic about his recovery prospects.

The website today reports that tests were performed on Monday and doctors determined Michael has a 'very strong heartbeat'.

Health scare: Michael Clarke Duncan, pictured with girlfriend Omarosa earlier this year, has been on a respirator since Friday after suffering a heart attack

The actor has been sedated ever since his heart attack, however, and doctors remain unsure what his condition will be, according to reports.

Publicist Joy Fehily said in a brief email statement on the weekend that the 54-year-old actor 'suffered a myocardial infarction' early on Friday.  She said his heart rate had stabilized and he's expected to make a full recovery.

Fehily would not confirm a report that Duncan's actress-girlfriend, Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth, discovered the former bodyguard in distress at about 2am Friday in his Los Angeles area home.

The website reported that Omarosa revived Duncan by performing CPR. The former The Apprentice star, who has been dating the actor since 2010, is understood to be by his bedside in an intensive care unit.

Her representative Priscilla Clarke confirmed Duncan was hospitalized but didn't provide any further details regarding his condition.

We'll being praying for him!!
