Blake Lively’s Father, Ernie Lively, in his Finest Roles From ‘Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants’ to ‘The Dukes of Hazzard,’
Ernie Lively, the actor, died of heart problems at the age of 74. When he died on June 3 in Los Angeles, he was allegedly surrounded by his wife and children.
Blake Lively, his youngest daughter, has led the online tributes to him, with her husband Ryan Reynolds and his former co-star Amber Tamblyn.
Ernest Brown Jr. was born in Baltimore in 1947 and began acting in the mid-1970s. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lively previously worked as an English professor and served as a lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps before returning as a captain.
He has over a hundred acting credits on both the little and large screens. He was also well-known for mentoring new artists, including his own children. Here are five of the jobs that will live on in his memory.
1 & 2 of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
In this 2005 film about four young women’s friendship and its 2008 sequel, Lively played the father of his real-life daughter, Blake, in possibly his most known part.
On Instagram, Amber Tamblyn, who portrayed Tibby in both films, paid tribute to Lively, writing, “our lovely amazing Sisterhood set father.” “What a funny, compassionate, generous soul,” she continued. We will miss you, but you will never be forgotten. We love you.”
Lively appeared alongside Wesley Snipes and Tom Sizemore in this 90s action thriller about a plane hijacking. Lively plays Sheriff Biggs, the local lawman who mistakes the hero John Cutter, played by Snipes, for a terrorist and arrests himâ€”until he escapes custody to save the day.
The Dukes of Hazzard
Lively had several roles across five years on The Dukes of Hazzard. For three episodes in 1980, he played the recurring character Longstreet B. Davenport. Longstreet was the cousin of Cooter Davenport and a friend of the Dukes. He watches the Hazzard Garage when Cooter is out of town.
One of Lively’s final roles was in the 2018 Nicolas Cage film Looking Glass. Not one of Cage’s biggest hits, it has a rating of just 4.6 on IMDB. In the thriller, Cage and Robin Tunney play a couple who buy a desert motel where an unexpected and mysterious event occurs. Lively was one of the motel’s. This is a brief summary.
