Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Ernest p. Worrell, the lovable blue-collar buffoon, was a staple of pop culture in countless commercials, nearly a dozen movies and an award-winning Saturday-morning TV show called, Hey Vern, It’s Ernest. Today, millions of fans still mourn the loss of actor Jim Varney, who portrayed Ernest and who died of cancer at age 50 in the year  2000. In the book The Importance of Being Ernest: The Life of Actor Jim Varney, Jim’s nephew Justin Lloyd has created a comprehensive biography that fans were waiting for. The book traces Jim’s journey from a child in Lexington, Kentucky, with dreams of being a stage and film actor to becoming an iconic entertainment figure. The Importance of Being Ernest has now inspired a forthcoming Documentary about the life of Jim Varney.

Justin Lloyd, the book’s author and nephew of Jim Varney has stopped by for a visit today.
