Ernest Borgnine


At the age of 92, Ernest Borgnine is not only still acting, he’s setting a precedent for all of us to follow. His recent appearance on the season finale of “ER” underscored the fact that even in your 90s it’s still possible to be vibrant, valuable and relevant.

He’s also become a favorite of youngsters everywhere thanks to his recurring role in the Nickelodeon animated series, “SpongeBob Squarepants.”

Borgnine continues to find roles because of his energy, his passion and his professionalism. He is proof that it’s not about age, it’s about attitude.
