A lot of great things go along with being an actor, including success, fame and fortune, but one thing you don’t find very often in the industry is longevity. Show business tends to chew up and spit out actors, especially as both men and women age. Ernie Hudson has somehow managed to be the exception. He came to fame in the movie Ghostbusters in 1984 and all these years later, he’s busier and in greater demand than ever.
At the age of 72, Ernie is guest starring on hit shows like Blue Bloods and the critically acclaimed Netflix series Frankie and Grace. That’s not to say he hasn’t experienced his share of setbacks over his career, but what sets him apart is his positive attitude and refreshing outlook on life.
