Barry Livingston's The Importance of Being Ernie

Barry Livingston's The Importance of Being ErnieFrom a television icon to the boards of Broadway and the silver screen, Barry Livingston is perhaps most recognized for his 8 years on the 12 year hit series “My Three Sons” and most recently for his roles on Mad Men and The Social Network.  

In the now iconic role of Ernie Douglas, he practically defined the word nerd (buck teeth, horn-rimmed glasses and all), but survived the stereotypes as well as the dangers of sex, depression and drugs that seem to plague former child stars, to become one of Hollywood's most respected, working actors and the quintessential family man.  Wisely re-inventing himself over the years, in his new book (The Importance of Being Ernie: From My Three Sons to Mad Men, A Hollywood Survivor Tells All/$24.95), Barry puts an amazingly humorous spin on Never-Before-Shared stories about working with legends such as Elvis, Jerry Lewis, Debbie Reynolds, Mickey Rooney, Lucille Ball, Jackie Gleason, Ozzie Nelson, Myrna Loy etc - The good, the cruel & the beautiful. Finding success in the industry he helped pioneer on such TV shows as Mad Men, Two and Half Men, Grey's Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, Monk, Big Love, Crossing Jordan, Will and Grace, the West Wing, and many others, as well as feature films like The Social Network.
