BARRY LIVINGSTON from My Three Sons - "The Importance of Being Ernie": A true Hollywood survivor, Barry Livingston is one of the few child stars who turned early success into a lifelong career. As "Ernie" on the 1960s sit-com My Three Sons-Barry became instantly recognizable for his horn-rimmed glasses and goofy charm - America's prototype Nerd.  Fifty years  later, after working on hits like Mad Men, Desperate Housewives, and The Social Network, this one time child star beat the odds and survived the dark side of the Hollywood dream factory-with charm, wit, determination and big horn-rimmed glasses.  Now  he has firmly established himself as a hard-working and always reliable character actor. He has appeared 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. He is a favorite of director David Fincher and had a featured role in the box office smash The Social Network. Adam Sandler, also a fan, cast Barry in Don't Mess With the Zohan.  Narry was mots recently seen in the Academy Award winning film Argo.
