Cliff Robertson.

September 9, 1923 – September 10, 2011
Cliff Robertson was just an awesome person. I can't think of a single performance I haven't enjoyed. There was just something about that made you wish he was your friend. Maybe it was that sneaky, little smile or that completely inimitable voice? 
He was perfect for light, fluffy '60s comedies.... but he was an even better serious actor. 

I mean, he was the guy who played the famous Newman and Brando and Lemmon roles -- before they played them.

One of my absolute favorite roles of his, is an episode of The Twilight Zone called "The Dummy." Cliff plays a completely psycho character, and he's BRILLIANT. And cool. And awesome.

But, that's how he always was. And that's why he will be very much missed.
Rest in peace, Mr. Robertson.

I think Cliff was one of the most underrated actors of our time. True, he won both an Oscar and an Emmy, but he should have been nominated and won so much more. I've never seen a bad performance from him, not even when the movie wasn't that good!
