The Resume

    Born in Los Angeles, California
    Portrayed Ernie Douglas in My Three Sons (1963-72)
    Appeared in the films 'My Six Loves' (1962), 'Sidewinder' (1977), 'Masters of the Universe' (1987), 'The Nut House' (1992), 'Tremors 3' (2001), 'The Social Network' (2010), 'Argo' (2012), and 'Jersey Boys' (2014)

Why he might be annoying:

    He was originally cast as one of Paul Newman's sons in 'Rally 'Round the Flag, Boys' (1958), but he was let go when he had to get glasses for his astigmatism.
    He had a sibling rivalry with his brother Stanley until they were both cast in 'My Three Sons.'
    He abused cocaine during a low point in his career in his 20s.
    He noted that using 'I was Ernie Douglas' as a pickup line usually resulted in the girl laughing in his face. ('I abandoned that strategy pretty quickly.')

Why he might not be annoying:

    He played the son of Mr. Mooney (Gale Gordon) in a two-part episode of 'The Lucy Show.'
    He said his favorite memories from 'My Three Sons' involved spending time with William Frawley ('Uncle Bub'), who always made him and his brother laugh.
    He made a successful transition from a child star to an adult character actor.
