Ernest Borgnine, the legendary actor perhaps best known for his role in the movie "Marty," passed away today at the age of 95.

His longtime spokesman, Harry Flynn, told The Associated Press that Borgnine died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with his family by his side.

Borgnine won an Oscar for "Marty" in 1955 and also starred in movies such as "From Here to Eternity" and "Bad Day at Black Rock."

On the small screen, Borgnine played Quinton McHale in the 1960s show "McHale's Navy."

Borgnine served a total of 10 years in the United States Navy, the last four coming after he re-enlisted when the U.S. entered World War II.

He once confided in an interview on TV (he did not know the mic was hot) that the secret to his long life was whacking off 3 times a day.

So...you boys better click on the pic of Hayden P. and get started if you want to live many, many years!

I grew up watching reruns of McHale's Navy. Still do, sometimes. He'll be well remembered here.

RIP Borgnine. You were a real Hollywood star. One of my favorites was Willard as a kid, it gave me the hibbie jibbies, and the thought of one scene still makes me cringe.

Too bad, I was hoping he'd make it to 100. It was nice seeing him in RED a couple years ago. RIP.
