We thought that loveable simpleton Ernest P. Worrell would have to live on in each of our hearts when actor Jim Varney passed away over a decade ago. No longer true. It turns out that before his death, Ernest was able to charm a woman with his rubber jaw and put a baby into her. That hopefully-consensual sex lead to the birth of a little Worrell, thus allowing the series to reboot with the upcoming Son Of Ernest.
Ruckusfilm is teaming with Ernest creator John Cherry for a new film that will introduce us to the bumpkin’s progeny and hopefully lead to more adventures where goes to various places. Enough about that. I’m more fascinated by the fact that Ernest fathered a child. I don’t recall Ernest Goes All The Way in the catalogue, and moreover, was Vern allowed to watch? (Variety)
