Ernest Borgnine, one of the last remaining legends of the Golden Age of Hollywood, passed away Sunday at age 95. Borgnine was a prolific television and film actor whose 200-plus credits include From Here To Eternity, The Poseidon Adventure, The Dirty Dozen, ER, McHale's Navy and Airwolf. He won an Oscar for Best Actor in 1955 for Marty. The endearing clip above is from an appearance on Fox & Friends Live where he dispenses some sagely advice on his longevity.

For decades, Jackie Chan's been rapidly kicking, jumping out of trees, and breaking every bone in his body to entertain audiences. Now, Chan says that his Buster Keaton-inspired kung fu days are over. While promoting his new movie, Chinese Zodiac, Chan said, "I want to be an Asian Robert DeNiro," claiming that he was "too old" to continue doing action films. As he's 58, he should be granted that wish.

Before smirking commences, Chan has taken on a smattering of dramatic roles in the past, going as far back as the first Police Story movie and as recently as 2009's crime drama, Shinjuku Incident.

Patrick Dempsey plays a doctor on Grey's Anatomy, so naturally, when he saw a car flipped over in Malibu, the actor pulled the teenage driver out and stayed with him until paramedics arrived. While this definitely makes Dempsey a do-gooder, one can hope that he could perform his role from Loverboy, where he played a pizza delivery boy/gigolo, as his next screen-to-real-life project.
