David Livingston/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — A public casket viewing and a private service for the late Michael Clarke Duncan have been scheduled.

His rep tells E! News that the public viewing will be held at the Hall of Liberty, at Forest Lawn Memorial Parks and Mortuaries in Los Angeles, this Sunday.  A private service will be held the following day.

The Oscar-nominated Green Mile star died on Monday, less than two months after suffering a heart attack.

A 32-year-old woman who claims to be Duncan’s daughter has spoken with Chicago’s WFLD-TV, saying the two had been estranged for 11 years.

Marquea Ambrose added, “The only thing that really bothers me about him passing is that we didn’t fix.”

However, sources claim that Duncan’s family members don’t know Ambrose, and that they hadn’t heard from her until he died.

The source says, “It was the day he died that she started calling his mother saying ‘I want what’s mine’ and trying to get money from her.”

The source says, “Michael did date Marquea’s mother, but he believed he was not her father.”

Duncan starred earlier this year in the since-cancelled Fox Bones spin-off The Finder.  In an article published in the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter, series creator Hart Hanson says he’d hoped to have Duncan appear in a future episode of Bones to wrap up The Finder story line.
