->''"Hey! Who stole my collection of used bandages? And they also got away with my nude pictures of Ernest Borgnine!"''
->--Creator/GeorgeCarlin


Born in 1917, Borgnine's movie career began in 1951. Before that, he was in the US Navy for ten years.

His most famous film roles include the title character in ''Marty'' (for which he won an Oscar) and Sgt. Fatso Judson in ''Film/FromHereToEternity''. His best-known role on TV is Dominic Santini in ''Series/{{Airwolf}}''. He also played the title character in the sitcom ''[[MchalesNavy McHale's Navy]]''. He's had guest roles in many TV-shows, including: ''{{ER}}'', ''Series/HomeImprovement'', ''Series/{{JAG}}'', ''Series/LittleHouseOnThePrairie'', ''Series/MagnumPI'', ''Series/SeventhHeaven'', ''Series/TheDistrict'', and ''Series/WalkerTexasRanger''.

Around here, though, he was perhaps best known for being the NightmareFuelStationAttendant in ''MerlinsShopOfMysticalWonders,'' and in one of the all-time great triumphs of celebrity licensing, his daughter produces a tie-in coffee soda named "Borgnine's" (Oh, and he also provided the voice of Mermaid Man on ''SpongebobSquarepants'', and appeared as himself in an episode of ''TheSimpsons'', if that interests you).

He passed away on July 8th, 2012.

!!Works starring Ernest Borgnine include:

* ''BaseketBall''
* ''Film/{{Red}}''
* ''TheSingleGuy''
* ''Film/EscapeFromNewYork''
* ''Film/{{Convoy}}''

!!This actor provides examples of:
* CoolOldGuy
* LargeHam (Not always... but enough to qualify)
** ''[[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants EVIIIIIIL!]]''
* MadeOfIron: At an age when most actors would have retired, Borgnine was still trouping less than a year before his death.
* SpringtimeForHitler: Borgnine sometimes said he owed his career to one of these. Burt Lancaster and his business partner decided to produce ''Marty'' thinking the movie (which was based off of a popular Telefilm) would lose money at the box office and they could use the expenses as a tax write-off, and they figured casting a fat, unattractive actor best known for playing heavies would ensure its demise. It ended up winning Borgnine the Best Actor Oscar (not to mention the movie itself winning Best Picture) and becoming one of the most profitable films of all time.

Around here, though, he's perhaps best known for being the NightmareFuelStationAttendant in ''MerlinsShopOfMysticalWonders,'' and in one of the all-time great triumphs of celebrity licensing, his daughter produces a tie-in coffee soda named "Borgnine's" (Oh, and he also provided the voice of Mermaid Man on ''SpongebobSquarepants'', and appeared as himself in an episode of ''TheSimpsons'', if that interests you).
