Yeah so he isn't a huge actor or star, but I enjoyed reading his reviews here and there.

CNN Film Critic Clinton Dies at 53


CNN film critic Paul Clinton died in Los Angeles on Monday at the age of 53 from natural causes, the network reported on Thursday. But in an obituary, CNN editor Todd Leopold, who edited Clinton's reviews noted that Clinton had been struggling with respiratory ailments due to smoking. In a final remembrance of his colleague, Leopold wrote, "As a critic, Paul Clinton was fond of using the word 'perfect' in his reviews. As his editor, I was just as fond of taking it out. In our regular phone calls, we would joke about that. 'I see you took out my favorite line, ' he would tell me. And I'd say, well, I just wanted to get more detail in. 'Perfect' could be so absolute. Nothing's perfect, right? But there was something perfect: Paul, to his credit, was a perfect gentleman about my tinkering."
