    One of those actors who's work I enjoyed, but had no idea he was still alive.

    RIP Ernest.

    Though tied in to the role of Lt. Cmdr. Quentin McHale, he did SO many other roles of all types.

    Isn't this the guy named Dominic Santini from Airwolf? Wasn't he part of McHale's Navy? Of the butcher from Marty?

    While he was in all of those and most people remember him from McHale's Navy or Marty, the first thing I think of when I hear Ernest Borgnine, is The Poseidon Adventure.

    Check his IMDb page. He was acting in movies in 2011 and there is one that was completed in 2012 but hasn't been released. And of course he was doing voiceovers for "SpongeBob SquarePants" through 2011.

    What a long, productive life. RIP

    Same. (I'll never forget that scene after they swim underwater and he stays with Shelley Winters.)

    Then I think of Airwolf.

    And oddly, then I think of a so-so short-lived comedy "The Single Guy" where Borgnine played an apartment and was buddies with one of the tenants, played by Jason Silverman.

    Saw a number of your movies and of course McHale's Navy...

    But I'll actually remember you most for your decades of partiicipation in the Great Circus parade in Milwaukee - as a clown. When interviewed, you always said that was the best role of your life.

    RIP Mr. Borgnine.

    Where does one begin to talk about the talent of Ernest Borgnine. The first thing I saw which Borgnine appeared in was 'Convoy', A 1978 a movie staring Kris Kristofferson (Never saw an episode of McHale's Navy until I moved to Southern California several years later). As for McHale's Navy, I preferred the show when it was set in the Pacific.

    Borgnine was a talented man who kept working until his last days and we can all be thankful that he was able to share his talents with us.. Thank You, Mr Borgnine and rest in peace.

    He had a small role in the 2010 Bruce Willis film "Red" and his comic timing was perfect.

    He was one of the best actors in the business with a career that spanned sixty two years in both film and television. I'm gonna miss your Ernest......R.I.P.
