RIP Ernest Borgnine

RIP Ernest Borgnine
I always liked Ernest Borgnine. As a kid one of my favourite movies was Disney's 'The Black Hole', in which he played astronaut/reporter Harry Booth. I remember him being one of the first celebrities to do a 'Simpsons' cameo appearance, and now that I am a father of kids myself I have heard his voice on several occasions as 'Mermaid Man' on 'Sponge Bob Square Pants'. I most recently seen Ernest Borgnine on the Bruce Willis flick 'Red'. I admired him for the fact he was a man in his 90's and still acting and still being very active. truly inspirational. He seemed like a real down to Earth nice guy, too few of those these days in Hollywood. He will be missed.
