Oscar-winning actor Ernest Borgnine dead at 95

It was this man's portrayal of Ragnar Lodbrok that really piqued my interest in things Norse when I was a kid, and started me on the path that ultimately led me to heathenry. Hail Ragnar! And hail Ragnar's beard!

Actor Ernest Borgnine, whose barrel-chested, bulldog looks made him a natural for tough-guy roles in films like "From Here to Eternity" but who won an Oscar for playing a sensitive loner in "Marty," died on Sunday at age 95, his publicist said.
