Life and career 
Clennon was born in Waukegan, Illinois, the son of Virginia, a homemaker, and Cecil Clennon, an accountant.
In 1980, David Clennon provided the voice for Admiral Motti in NPR's Star Wars The Original Radio Drama. He was a regular on the TV shows Almost Perfect, The Agency, and Saved. Most recently, Clennon played Carl Sessick (a.k.a. Carl the Watcher) on Ghost Whisperer.
In 1993 he won an Emmy award for his guest appearance on the series Dream On.
In 2013, he repeatedly spoke out against the film Zero Dark Thirty and refused to vote for it for an Academy Award, stating that it promotes the acceptable use of torture.
||I firmly believe that the film Zero Dark Thirty promotes the acceptance of the crime of torture, as a legitamate weapon in America’s so-called war on terror. In that belief, following my conscience, I will not vote for Zero Dark Thirty in any category…I cannot vote for a film that makes heroes of Americans who commit the crime of torture.
