Ernest Lee "Ernie" Hudson, Sr. is an American actor best known for his role as Winston Zeddemore in the Ghostbusters series.

BiographyEdit

Hudson was born on December 17, 1945, to Maggie Donald. He never met his father, and when his mother died of tuberculosis, he was raised by Arrana Donald, his maternal grandmother, along with his half-brother Lewis Hudson.

Hudson later decided to join the Marine Corps straight out of High School. However, those plans were dashed after three months because of asthma. He decided to move to Detroit, Michigan, where he managed to become the residential playwright at Concept East, a theater known for being the oldest black theater in the U.S. Hudson then chose to enroll at the Wayne State University so that he could perfect both his writing and his acting talents. Later on, he launched the Actors Ensemble Theatre, where he and multiple other African-American writers acted and directed their own works. Eventually, he enrolled and eventually graduated from the Yale School of Drama.

Throughout his years as an actor, Ernie has appeared in a multitude of movies, TV shows, and animated series. Examples include the Ghostbusters series as ghostbuster Winston Zeddemore; the Oz series as Leo Glynn, the warden of the Oswald state correctional facility; and Law and Order as Frank Gibson, the boyfriend and fiancé of Lt. Anita Van Buren.
