Ernest Borgnine (born Ermes Effron Borgnino; January 24, 1917) is an American actor of television and film. His career has spanned more than six decades. He was an unconventional lead in many films of the 1950s, including his Academy Award-winning turn in the 1955 film Marty, and his reprised role as "Cabbie" in John Carpenter's 1981 film, "Escape From New York". On television, he played Quinton McHale in the 1962-66 series McHale's Navy and costarred in the mid-1980s action series Airwolf, in addition to a wide variety of other roles. Borgnine is also known for his role as Mermaid Man in the animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants. Borgnine joined the United States Navy in 1935, after graduation from James Hillhouse High School in New Haven, Connecticut. He was discharged in 1941, but re-enlisted when the United States entered World War II and served until 1945 (a total of ten years), reaching the rank of Gunner's Mate 1st Class. He served aboard the destroyer USS Lamberton (DD-119). His military decorations included the Navy Good Conduct Medal, American Defense Service Medal with Fleet Clasp, American Campaign Medal, Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal and the World War II Victory Medal. In 2004, Borgnine received the honorary rank of Chief Petty Officer from the Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Terry D. Scott -- the US Navy's highest ranking enlisted sailor at the time -- for Borgnine's support of the Navy and naval families worldwide. Borgnine's autobiography Ernie was published by Citadel Press in July 2008. Ernie is a loose, conversational recollection of highlights from his acting career and notable events from his personal life. In the wake of the book's publication, he began a small promotional tour, visiting independent bookstores in the Los Angeles area to promote the book's release and meet some of his fans. Ernest Borgnine has volunteered to be Stories of Service National spokesman, urging his fellow World War II vets to come forward and share their stories. On October 2, 2010, Borgnine appeared as himself in a sketch on Saturday Night Live. So not only is Ernest Borgnine still alive and kicking, but he is to headline a McHale's Navy themed cruise in December of this year.
Gene Wilder (born Jerome Silberman; June 11, 1933) is an American stage and screen actor, director, screenwriter, and author. Wilder was drafted into the Army on September 10, 1956. At the end of recruit training, he was assigned to the medical corps and sent to Fort Sam Houston for training. He was then given the opportunity to choose any post that was open, and wanting to stay near New York City to attend acting classes at the HB Studio, he chose to serve as a Medic in the Department of Psychiatry and Neurology at Valley Forge Army Hospital, in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. In November 1957, his mother died from ovarian cancer. He was discharged from the army a year later and returned to New York. Wilder began his career on stage, making his screen debut in the film Bonnie and Clyde in 1967. His first major role was as Leopold Bloom in the 1968 film The Producers. This was the first in a series of prolific collaborations with writer/director Mel Brooks, including 1974's Young Frankenstein, the script of which garnered the pair an Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay. Wilder received an urgent call from Mel Brooks, who was filming Blazing Saddles, offering Wilder the role of The Waco Kid after Dan Dailey dropped out at the last minute. Wilder is known for his portrayal of Willy Wonka in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971) and for his four films with Richard Pryor: Silver Streak (1976), Stir Crazy (1980), See No Evil, Hear No Evil (1989), and Another You (1991). He was married to actress Gilda Radner and her death from ovarian cancer led to his active involvement in promoting cancer awareness and treatment, helping found the Gilda Radner Ovarian Cancer Detection Center in Los Angeles. In more recent years, Wilder has turned his attention to writing, producing a memoir in 2005, Kiss Me Like A Stranger: My Search for Love and Art. An unauthorized biography of Wilder entitled Gene Wilder: Funny and Sad by Brian Scott Mednick was published in December 2010 by BearManor Media. And like Ernest Borgnine, Gene Wilder too, is counted among the living.
But just for the record, per the commentary track of the Special Edition The Poseidon Adventure, both Gene Hackman and Ernest Borgnine expressed interest in having cameo roles in 2006's Poseidon to which the studio more or less replied, "va fangu!" And Gene Wilder wanted nothing to do with the 2005 Willy Wonka remake. And since both Kurt Russel and Ernest Borgnine are still alive, I wonder if they're going to have cameo roles if the upcoming Escape from NY remake, ever gets off the ground. Oh, and remember that cool 3-D scene when Snake flies through New York City on the glider? Since 3D rendering was so expensive back in 1981, you won't believe how they filmed that entire scene using tape and a black light. My guess is they'll do a little better this time around.
"Airman Sugar Tits" made me LOL. But yes, the young lass does have a set of pipes on her, eh? And here's a list of 25 Women-I've-Never-Met-In-My-Life. Or, as the original author titled it, 25 Hot Women Who Love To Watch Baseball. I tried to find a Girls Who Love Anal Sex list, but no dice. But i did find a girl who has the ugliest clock I have ever seen.
Old and busted: Girl screaming on a Slingshot ride. The new hotness? And I do mean hotness, by the way. Girl enjoys a Slingshot ride. And by "enjoys," what I really mean is, "has an orgasm on camera".
