Wow.  Ernest Borgnine may not have been your traditional Hollywood leading man, but he always worked.  His IMDB entry has him credited as an actor in over 200 films going back to 1951.  And one of his earliest roles that got him some serious acclaim was "From here to eternity" back in 1953!  And then he won a Best Actor Oscar in 1955 for Marty.

But one of the best Ernest Borgnine moments of all time?  Sharing too much with Steve Doocy of Fox & Friends

I saw him at DragonCon just last year.  He lived life right to the end.

He sure did Bill.  I was lined up to get an autograph from Martin Landau & Ernest was sitting next to him. Doing a con circuit at 94 is pretty bad ass!  8)

I will miss Starfish man or whatever he was called on Spongebob.  Vaguely remember him from some black n white shows as a kid.

Does Rocky's son count ?
