Academy Award winner Ernest Borgnine is one of those actors whom you have seen a million times in a million different films. He was the quintessential character actor, and we can honestly say we’ll never have another like him. Playful, smart, and unforgettable, the man has passed on at age 95.
Borgnine brought a great deal of honesty and believability to each of his characters. No matter what the role, he breathed life into it like no one else could. Whether it be as Cabbie from Escape from New York or the malevolent Jonathan Corbis in The Devil’s Rain, he was there giving it 110%, and Hollywood is all the better for it. Borgnine’s other genre appearances include Willard, Deadly Blessing. Gattaca, and much more.
It’s hard to say goodbye, but wow, has he left behind a legacy. We here at Dread Central would like to take this moment to offer our deepest condolences to Ernest’s many friends, family, and constituents. Rock on, sir, and thank you!
