Legendary actor Ernest Borgnine, who starred in three of the greatest movies of all-time, MartyThe Dirty Dozen, and The Wild Bunch, as well as one of my favorite Simpsons episodes, “Boy-Scoutz n the Hood,” has passed away from renal failure at the age of 95.

(HH:  I also thought he was fantastic in From Here to Eternity.)

Ernest Borgnine, the beefy screen star known for blustery, often villainous roles, but who won the best-actor Oscar for playing against type as a lovesick butcher in Marty in 1955, died Sunday. He was 95.

His longtime spokesman, Harry Flynn, told the Associated Press that Borgnine died of renal failure at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with his wife and children at his side. (Via)
