Having coached a number of young working actors, Ernie Lively became known not only as a performer but as a well-respected mentor. Lively's first steady work came on the rollicking buddy comedy "The Dukes of Hazzard," and he soon followed up with guest appearances on several other hit primetime shows, including the police drama "Hill Street Blues," in which he played several different characters, and the primetime soap "Falcon Crest" where he had a recurring role as a security guard. In film, Lively first distinguished himself as the priceless motel clerk in "Turner & Hooch," the early Tom Hanks comedy, and as the local sheriff, Chief Biggs, in the prescient thriller "Passenger 57," about a terrorist takeover of a jet airliner. At roughly the same time, Lively was working on the Angela Lansbury mystery series "Murder, She Wrote," again playing an assortment of characters. Lively returned to film comedy as the hapless sergeant in "American Pie 2" and teamed up with his real-life daughter, Blake Lively, in the film adaptation of the bestselling novel by Delia Ephron, "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants," and its sequel "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2."
