Burt Reynolds, Star of ‘Deliverance,’ ‘Smokey and the Bandit,’ Dies at 82

Burt Reynolds, one of Hollywood’s most popular leading men during the ’70s and early ’80s in such films as “Deliverance,” “Smokey and the Bandit, “The Longest Yard” and “Semi-Tough,” has died. His rep confirmed that he died Thursday in Jupiter, Fla. He was 82.

He later earned an Oscar nomination as best supporting actor in Paul Thomas Anderson’s ode to skin flicks, “Boogie Nights.” He had been set to appear in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Hollywood.”

Reynolds’ appeal lay in his post-modern macho posture undercut by a wry self-awareness, which he used to good effect in comedies as well as action films. For a period during the ’70s he was the nation’s top box office draw. But after one too many bad movies, his popularity waned. He returned to television, where he’d gotten his start, mostly in Westerns, and produced his own sitcom, “Evening Shade,” which brought him an Emmy.

So many feelings wrapped up in his passing. A favorite of my grandfather (who was a truckdriver) and someone who I will always associate with my family. I remember riding shotgun in my grandfather's rig on day trips and playing with the CB.


I actually drove the Atlanta to Texarkana route right after I moved to Georgia back in '99. While I didn't have the Trans-Am, getting to take my Mustang there and back again was a great weekend jaunt.

Also, as a car guy...who didn't love Cannonball Run?
