Martin Lawrence has issued a statement on the death of his friend Michael Clarke Duncan ... telling TMZ he had the privilege of working with the big man WAY before MCD became an actor.

Lawrence tells us, "From the days of him doing security on the 'Martin' show, to us working together on 'Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins,' I enjoyed working with him.  He will be missed."

Martin adds, "My condolences go out to his family and loved ones."

FYI -- Duncan was a bigtime private security guard in Hollywood before he made it big as an actor ... working for stars like Will Smith, LL Cool J, Jamie Foxx and Christopher Wallace (aka Biggie Smalls).

I heard him on a radio interview and he seemed like the nice guy I always thought he was.
He'll be missed ; theer aren't many TRUE people in Hollyweird.

He was a talented actor and seemed like an overall good guy. I guess Omarosa's bad karma finally caught up with him.

By the way if you haven't seen it. "Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins" is an excellent movie.
