Hollywood Legend Burt Reynolds Dies

Burt Reynolds, a familiar and charismatic star, producer and director whose career has spanned decades, has died. According to the report, Reynolds died on Thursday morning at Jupiter Medical in Flordia, per his manager Erik Krtizer. Reynolds was now shooting Quentin Tarantino's upcoming film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie.

He went on to star in dozens of other famous films including The Longest Yard, Smokey and the Bandit, and Boogie Nights, for which he was nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.

Before that, he was the archetypal good ol' boy actor, frequently starring in action movies and the kind of hyper-masculine roles that simply don't exist in modern movies.

In his 2015 memoir But Enough About Me, Reynolds admitted that he missed many opportunities over years.

He created the Burt Reynolds Institute for Film and Theatre, a non-profit dedicated to involving the community in all aspects of the arts and preserving Reynolds' legacy for generations to come.

Burt Reynolds has played an important part in Palm Beach County's modern history and the impact he has had on their community is a vital part of that history.

It also proved a hit in Reynolds' personal life, too.

But it was John Boorman's 1972 thriller "Deliverance", which cast Reynolds as outdoorsman Lewis Medlock, that is widely credited for launching his early career.

He would later call Field "the one that got away".

Tributes flooded in for Reynolds from fans and fellow actors, as well as his co-stars.

He played Lewis Medlock, one of four friends who canoe down a river in the Georgia wilderness and run into some locals who savagely attack them.

Once among Hollywood's highest-paid actors, Reynolds later fell into financial trouble amid private ventures in an Atlanta restaurant and a professional sports team, though he continued to make cameo appearances and teach acting classes.
