Happy Birthday, Ernest Borgnine!

Ernest_lIt’s nice to know that late-bloomer Ernest Borgnine is making up for lost time. The Oscar-winning star of Marty, The Poseidon Adventure, and TV’s McHale’s Navy didn’t start acting until he was nearly 30, but he’s still taking on new roles today. So let’s mark his 90th birthday Wednesday with a haiku.

You stomped Sinatra,
Rode with The Wild Bunch, so we’ll
Spot you Single Guy.

    Considering Mr. Borgnine’s homophobic comments last year at this time that helped derail the Brokeback Mountain ride at the Oscars, I wish him a miserable birthday. Maybe he could get a guest spot on Grey’s Anatomy as Isiah Washington’s daddy.

    To Ernest Borgnine?
    I am creatively stumped…
    Happy Birthday, though.

  • Pouncer

    You are forgetting his best role! Dominic Santini in Airwolf!

  • Christopher

    to some you’re Marty
    others, you’re always McHale
    for me, you’re always Cabbie

    Happy Birthday!

  • Ep Sato

    He’s still alive? Here’s my take:
    The Mummy’s Black Hole
    Cabbed in from Manhattan
    Glad your still here, man

    slow news day, huh

    Happy Birthday, Ernie!

    OMG. He’s ninety! Wow, I wonder if he uses Tova’s beauty products because he doesn’t look a day over 70!! Here’s to you, Ernest. You may be my favorite over-actor.

  • Nick

    Happy Birthday, but… I cannot forgive him for being in that MST3K Merlin crap-fest.

  • Ed

    90 90 WOW!
    How the hell do you survive?
    Viagra tonight!

  • bigcoltsfan

    You sunk on a ship
    Now you voice MermaidMan
    On Spongebob Squarepants

  • marykate

    OMG, Nick, you brought up Merlin’s Magical Shop of Mystical Wonders.
    Will you marry me? HAHA!!

    I. Cannot. Believe. EW.com would ask me to wish this old-style homophobe a happy birthday. I wish someone would strap him to a seat in front of a widescreen playing “Brokeback Mountain” so he could maybe open his mind. We deride Isaiah Washinton yet give Jabba here a free ride because he’s old and white. Shame on you, PopWatch. Shame.

    “The mystical wonder is that he’s IN a movie”. :)
