As Rob posted, Ernest Borgnine died today at 95. From Marty to SpongeBob SquarePants, McHale's Navy to From Here To Eternity, Borgnine had a fantastic and fantastically-diverse career. For Rob, Borgnine was Dominic Santini from Airwolf. But my favorite Borgnine role will always be the gleeful Cabbie in Escape from New York (1981).
